Les Arts Decoratifs, 107 rue de Rivoli. Metro: Palais-Royal.
It was the 1990s. It was the age of the supermodel when Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell became huge stars. It was also the time when the artistic directors of luxury fashion houses took center stage and crafted the most exquisite pieces of couture art.

Les Arts Decoratifs
explores an exciting time in fashion's history--the 1990s through the 2000s--with an exhibit of 150 couture pieces by Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel), Tom Ford (Gucci), Helmut Lang, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix, Alber Elbaz (Lanvin), Nicolas Ghesquiere (Balenciaga), and more.

Visitors will not only view these amazing pieces in person, but they can also watch the original runway shows that feature the collection via flat panel screens. This exhibit is an intimate look at a pivotal moment in modern fashion design and its evolution.

Les Annees 1990 & 2000 is on-view through May 8. Admission: 9 Euros (about $12). Free for students under 26. The museum is located at 107 rue de Rivoli. Closed on Mondays. Metro: Palais-Royal.
