5,100 people walked through the doors of the Savage Beauty show last Wednesday, forcing the museum to suspend its scheduled guided tours until crowds thinned.
That number is just a few hundred short of the Mets most-trafficked opening day. About 5,400 people clamoured to see Vincent van Gogh: The Drawings when it opened in 2005.
A museum spokesperson said the gift shop sold 600 exhibition catalogues last Wednesday. No word yet on how many mini Armadillo shoes flew out the door... but we're sure that broke a record too. (UPDATE: 163 mini-'dillos walked out of the gift shop last Wednesday, and a total of 1,100 have sold to date. McQueen would be proud.)
