    Cool video, but ugh, that’s some pretty creepy sentiment about the difference between a man and a woman. My feathers have been ruffled!

    Glad you all enjoyed that! Yes it is the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Costume Institute. And I think you can hear Diana Vreeland’s voice in the background at one point.
