Late Nights at The Dallas Museum of Art: Jean Paul Gaultier

The Dallas Museum of Art hosted it's monthly Late Nights program last Friday.  The theme for January was of course, Jean Paul Gualtier.  I am seriously in love with all things Gaultier lately!  This was by far, the BEST Late Nights program that I've ever attended.  I made Morgan go with me and we ran into Lys of Luxurylyst at the event.

Dress: Connected Apparel
Shoes: BCBGMaxAzria
Rings: Wedding Set and T+J Designs
Bracelets: Kenneth Cole (here in Silver) and Marc Jacobs
Earrings: no label

Distractions: 1)My gold purse fell apart as I was changing things over. It died and will not be seen on my blog again. 2) I twisted my ankle the night before and couldn't walk in heels to save myself. I went with leopard print flats. 3) I took off my fabulous ring to wash my hands (it's not real gold and I didn't want to get it wet and turn my finger green) and I left it in the bathroom! Of course, when I tried to look again, it was gone:(  Luckily, the cost is not earth shattering and ladies over at T+J Designs have them on sale right now. I will just have to go and buy a new one.  Some lucky chick in Dallas has a great new statement ring.
The Museum had an incredible members salon where we could go and relax in between exhibits.  The first photo was taken in these amazing $8,000 chairs.  I don't think I will ever sit in another chair as expensive again, so I had to take advantage of the situation.  This one above was in there as well and yes, all pillows, chairs, rugs, everything is a Gaultier design.
While we were in the members salon, we got to meet Chris America and her Bling Divas dancers as they prepared to perform their tribute to Madonna on the main stage.  They were all very sweet and let us photograph them before they headed down to the stage.  They put on an amazing show!
Finally, we attended the Fear and Clothing lecture with Cintra Wilson, who is an author and contributor to the New York Times.  She was unbelievably funny and spot on.  I seriously think I have a small girl crush on her.  I was amazed at how much advertising changes based on current events in our world.  She definitely gave me a lot to think about and I am really looking forward to buying her upcoming book, also titled Fear and Clothing.

It was a great, great evening and a fabulous time was had by all.  I am going back tomorrow as my sister will be in town to take the Fabric Manipulation workshop with Project Runway contestant Shirin Askari.
All photos were taken with my iPhone because genius me left the memory card for my SLR at home.

  1. Thank you! I know the pictures are not very good, but I meant to do outfit shots at the museum and then my plans were derailed!
