Sarah Jessica Parker will be the voice in the headphones narrating the new audio guide tour on “Costume: The Art of Dress” beginning Nov. 25.
It will surely seem like Carrie’s doing a voiceover as you peruse the 20 pieces of art from the museum’s permanent collection, like historical garments, paintings and sculptures. We wonder if there will be any cute nods to SJP’s most famous role – “When I look at this ancient costume, I can’t help but wonder…”
The audio guide was recorded this summer, and is the first the Costume Institute has offered.
“Looking beyond our encyclopedic collection of costume to the museum’s other treasures puts clothing into a historical context,” Costume Institute curator-in-charge Harold Koda told WWD. “Walking through the galleries listening to Sarah Jessica Parker’s narration will bring a sense of discovery and delight to the experience.”
