"Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty" MET Museum Exhibition

Designs by Karl Lagerfeld are displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute exhibition 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty' on Saturday in New York.

NEW YORK — Seven words from Karl Lagerfeld adorn a doorway at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's sumptuous new exhibit honoring the late, legendary designer: "Fashion does not belong in a museum."

Andrew Bolton, who masterminds the New York museum's blockbuster Costume Institute shows each year, chuckled as he led a visitor through that doorway this weekend, a few days before opening, with crews nearby bustling to prepare for Monday's splashy Met Gala.
