Fashion Off the 405, Weekender Edition

We look good on the weekends—thanks to you, our stylish visitors

Weekends at the Getty are all about family, friends, and fun. Some travel from afar, checking the Getty Center off their “Things to Do in LA” lists, and locals drop by for a weekend staycation.

This past weekend, at the last Garden Concert of our summer series for kids, the sun was shining brightly and the Central Gardens seemed especially vibrant. The landscape was absolutely picturesque, as were our weekend visitors.

These weekenders were dressed head-to-toe in happiness, accessorized with smiles and laughs. Check out some of my favorite moments and looks that embody that feeling of weekend wanderlust.

      #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.
