We will give you one reason to visit the “Ralph Pucci: The Art of the Mannequin” at New York City’s Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)Christy Turlington-Burns.

Here is a bit more about this exhibit, from MAD.

“Ralph Pucci: The Art of the Mannequin will be the first museum exhibition to explore the work of renowned New York-based designer Ralph Pucci, who is widely regarded for his innovative approach to the familiar form of the mannequin.”

“Having collaborated with luminaries such as Diane von Furstenberg, Patrick Naggar, Andrée Putman, Kenny Scharf, Anna Sui, Isabel and Ruben Toledo and Christy Turlington, Pucci’s mannequins not only expand the parameters of this ubiquitous sculptural form, but reflect major cultural trends of the past three decades.”

“As Pucci was building his business in the 1970s, the notion of the ‘super model’ — the living mannequin with a personality—emerged.”

The exhibit includes a mannequin that Ralph worked on with Christy, entitled, “Yoga,” as the model had just launched a line of yoga clothing.

Shots of Christy can even be seen in the replication of Ralph’s studio.

We love Christy, but in all honesty, for any model-lover, this is a must-attend exhibit. Here’s more.

The exhibit runs until August 30, 2015, at NYC’s MAD Museum.
