A chic wonk with a hearty laugh and a Ph.D. from Yale in modern European cultural and intellectual history, Dr. Steele, 59, is the longtime director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She has written some 20 scholarly books on style and was a force behind a range of rigorously curated exhibits such as "Gothic: Dark Glamour" and "A Queer History of Fashion: From the Closet to the Catwalk."
