Late yesterday, The New York Times reported that The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute will be renamed in honor of Anna Wintour. The Vogue editor and Condé Nast artistic director has reportedly been involved with the fashion department since 1995; over the years, Wintour has raised about $125 million dollars and hosted more than fifteen Met Ball benefits, establishing the annual gala as one of the world's most high-profile red carpet event. 

The Costume Institute reopens in May following a two-year, $40 million renovation project (the sum was fundraised, in part, by Wintour). It will be called the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Get used to it.
