Architectural Digest’s Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell will be live-sculpted at the Museum of Arts and Design tomorrow.   What does live-sculpting entail? Master portrait sculptor Michael Evert, a longtime collaborator of New York-based designer Ralph Pucci, will create a bust of Margaret Russell in front of museum guests. It will probably resemble one of these.   This event is in conjunction with the ongoing exhibition, Ralph Pucci: The Art of the Mannequin. Ralph Pucci is well known for his innovative approach to the statuesque form of the mannequin. His interpretations of mannequins go far beyond what we are used to seeing – they are dynamic, often playful and they reflect major cultural trends of the past three decades.

This is not only a chance to see the fabulous Margaret Russell, but also an opportunity to observe the incredibly talented Michael Evert in action and visit this fascinating exhibit that crosses the boundaries between design, art and fashion.
