"Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" closed last week after a wildly popular run at the Met. If you couldn't stand the snaking lines, or just want to see it again, watch this SundayArts Curator's Choice featuring Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, discussing the exhibition of the late designer’s extraordinary garments.

In this edition of SundayArts: a visit to the New York Botanical Garden, a look at the new Film Society of Lincoln Center theaters, Alexander McQueen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the latest SundayArts News.

Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, discusses Savage Beauty, the current exhibition of the late designer Alexander McQueen's extraordinary garments on display through August 7, 2011.

Pablo Picasso's muse at The Gagosian, contemporary ballet at The Joyce, Tony Award time, Alexander McQueen's work on display at the Met, and an Ai Weiwei public installation.

To those outside the orbit of haute couture, the industry may seem trite, but a trip through the Met's "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" is a reminder of how fashion can combine unfettered imagination and trends of the moment with the body's limits, tradition, and mad sewing skills.
