Costume design by Italian masters on display in Beverly Hills
The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills isn't slated to open for another year. But already it is bringing fashion fans a treat.
The center booked a nearby temporary space to host the first U.S. showing of "Il Teatro alla Moda," an exhibition of more than 50 exquisite costumes made by 11 Italian couturiers, including Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Valentino and Roberto Capucci.
Fashion critic Booth Moore previewed the exhibit, which opened Friday and runs through Nov. 13.
After reading her report, I am definitely penciling this one into my calendar.
