If you love talking about fashion as much as we do, then you’ll be thrilled to hear about the new blog that has style hounds buzzing. The Metropolitan Museum‘s Costume Institute (famed for their yearly celeb-studded bash) wants our thoughts on the newest, most stunning additions to their world famous closet. Their new exhibition, called “blog.mode: addressing fashion”, features a blog that asks for viewer participation — both in the museum and on the web. Can’t visit the Institute’s priceless works of fashion in person? Then be sure to post your comments on 18th century gowns and contemporary masterpieces from designers like Olivier Theyskens and John Galliano at
