In case you haven't made your way up to the Met to see "Death Becomes Her", the Costume Institute's latest exhibit featuring the mourning attire and customs of the Victorian era, here's your friendly little reminder that it closes this Sunday, February 1st. After that, the space will be closed down to prepare for the spring show on Chinese fashion and culture. In the meantime, you can head to the Brooklyn Museum to catch "Killer Heels," which just extended its run through March 1st.
