Gallery Girls

Four art world notables who have mastered the art of dressing.

Fabienne Stephan

Fabienne Stephan

Salon 94’s well-traveled in-house curator augments her designer wardrobe (Raf Simons, Stella McCartney) with goods from every city she visits. “It’s kind of a collage-based practice,” she jokes of her shopping habit.

Angela Goding

The first thing you notice about MoMA PS1’s Director of Development is her hair, which is closely shaved on the sides and pulled back in a pony on top. (“Hare Krishna meets ninja warrior,” she quips.) Goding’s style, inherited from her mother, who wore avant-garde Japanese designers in the ’80s, is no less architectural: Think Issey Miyake, Martin Margiela, and Maria Cornejo.

Piper Marshall Veteran New York art dealer Mary Boone hired the spirited curator to inject some new energy into her program. Marshall certainly dresses the part, mixing edgy brands with vintage leather jackets, nerd-chic glasses, and black turtlenecks, for a look she charmingly describes as “square.”

Begum Yasar

As the youngest director at New York’s tony Dominique Lévy gallery, Yasar, 30, is the link between Lévy’s blue-chip power-brokering and the up-and-coming art stars of today. She pairs, say, a Céline ensemble with white Adidas or a ’90s graphic print tee with a silk Haider Ackermann blazer, creating an effect that is equal parts youthful and establishment.
