Fashion Off the 405, Kids’ Edition

Our youngest visitors are also some of our most stylish

Our annual Garden Concerts for Kids brings thousands of little ones to the top of the Getty Center hill, releasing a renewed spirit across the campus and filling up the beautiful garden with outdoor festivities. Having an eye for fashion, I couldn’t help but notice what our youngest visitors were wearing. Undeniably, kids have the most fun with fashion!

This past weekend, the first in this year’s series, was a whirlwind of ruffles, stripes, and bold colors—and I’m not just talking about the beautiful flowers in bloom.

The fun and fashion continues at the Garden Concerts on August 9 & 10 and August 16 & 17. Be sure to drop by!

      #ThyCaptionBe: You Look Like Hell

      You captioned this detail. And we’re revealing the full story now.

      Escaping the in-laws or medieval Sea World? It’s actually an extreme punishment for a dress code violation. 

      Here’s the full story:

      The Christian tale of Saint Josaphat is roughly based on the life of the Buddha in a kind of medieval game of telephone, in which the sources for the text passed through Christian circles in the Middle East in the 8th century before appearing in European versions in the 11th century. 

      Here an unsuitably dressed guest—we can see that his tattered clothing and scruffy facial hair have no place at the well-dressed gathering—is cast into the dark, open mouth of a terrifying animal. 

      To make matters worse, the story is a parable in which Barlaam, Josaphat’s Christian teacher, describes the sinful who do not make the cut at the Last Judgment.

      Holiday Lesson: Always check the dress code.

      #ThyCaptionBe is a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. You guess what the heck is going on, then we myth-bust.
