RATE IT! Superheroes ~ Fashion Saviours

A bit too titillated by Wonder Woman’s strapless costume? Transfixed by the naughty taut-ness of Batman’s tights? Look no further than the recently opened special exhibition, Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Backed by designer Giorgio Armani, the exhibit which runs until September 1st is the perfect marriage of pop culture icons and fashion. See how runway designs have been inspired by our Superfriends and vice versa. Fashion forward or job-dictated duds? Yes, ultra-fit Aquaman does show off his goods in excessively tight leggings but how fast could he swim the ocean & save lives without such a painted-on body glove?

Final verdict: Take a break from the mummy exhibit and see how fashion can be functional and least for the Superheroes lurking among us.
