I had the pleasure of attending the official Re-Opening of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier today. Mrs. Obama cut the ribbon during the ceremonies that were attended by trustees of the museum, NYC Mayor Bloomberg and tastemakers like fashion designer Ralph Lauren and model Iman. (The First Lady even graciously hugged and kissed Iman after her speech. Hmmm…)
Mrs. Obama dazzled in a purple Isaac Mizrahi ensemble. With her are left to right, Emily K. Rafferty, President of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and NY Congress reps Carolyn Maloney and Charles Rangel.
