Sarah Jessica Parker has been asked to lend her voice to the first ever audio guide accompaniment at the Costume Institute exhibit at the Met. SJP has recorded a guide to Costume: The Art of Dress. The recordings will direct visitors around 20 exhibits ncluding historical costumes and relevant paintings and sculptures from the museum's permanent collection - from November 25.
"Looking beyond our encyclopedic collection of costume to the museum's other treasures puts clothing into a historical context," the Costume Institute's curator-in-charge, Harold Koda, tells WWD. "Walking through the galleries listening to Sarah Jessica Parker's narration will bring a sense of discovery and delight to the experience." Or are we listening to SJP's character Carrie Bradshaw's narration? Lets hope.
