The Met Renames Costume Institute Space After Anna Wintour

The exhibit space at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute is being renamed the Anna Wintour Costume Center.

The Met announced the change in part because Wintour brings in the dough. Since being named a Met trustee, Wintour has helped raise about $125 million for the Costume Institute.

The Met is currently renovating the Costume Center. It’s set to reopen May 8 with an exhibition from Charles James.

Don’t like the name Anna Wintour Costume Center? Too bad. Also, Wintour could probably have you fired from your job, so watch yourself, buddy.
