Fashion Week Daily reports that the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute ball, aka the Party of the Year, aka Ahhh-nna’s Party (so-named after its longtime chairman, Vogue editor Anna Wintour), will attempt to become less commercial next year and the guest list will focus on traditional museum supporters rather than US-magazine style celebs. Which means, I suppose, that the implicit criticism in Rogues’ Gallery of what the event has become isn’t actually as “cynical” as a Vogue Magazine flack has claimed. As George Bernard Shaw once wisely observed, the power of accurate observation is often described as cynicism by those who do not possess it.
