The Museum of Fine Arts continues to cater to the style set with yet another fashion-driven collection, "Think Pink." Coinciding with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the petite exhibit highlights its namesake rosy color in the worlds of wardrobe history and visual art from the 18th century to the present era. Explore the evolution of pink as a feminine color while boys veered toward blue, alongside shifting tides in silhouette and cultural use of the hue, while also examining advances in color technology.
The exhibit doesn't open until tomorrow, October 3, but online we've scoped out a pair of fuchsia Louboutins, both colonial period and floral Dolce & Gabbana dresses, and several illustrations—apparently some of the gallery's dresses and accessories hail from the collection of the late Evelyn Lauder. At 7pm tonight, the MFA will be washed in the glow of pink light to mark the opening and breast cancer awareness.
