Arguably the West Coast’s biggest event on the 2016 calendar, LACMA’s Art + Film Gala rang in its sixth year along with throngs of the town’s VIP culture-seekers on Saturday, October 29. Honoring Light & Space artist Robert Irwin and Academy Award-winning director and producer Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker), the majestic evening brought together 500 distinguished luminaries from the worlds of art, fashion and entertainment, including co-chairs Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio. starlets all over the green carpet were clad in the event sponsor Gucci‘s breathtaking ensembles—from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s blush-hued ruffled gown to Brie Larson’s sheer, blue long-sleeved number—as they mingled with Gucci creative director and the event’s gala host committee chair, Alessandro Michele, who attended for the second year in a row. The cocktail reception kicked off with guests previewing a special clip of Bigelow’s latest virtual reality short film, The Protectors, a work which stays true to the visionary’s painterly approach in telling powerfully relevant stories through film. Following the movie clip, a seated dinner was served for guests like Jeff Koons, Zoe Saldana and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in the Art + Film pavilion, where Michael Govan presented a tribute to Irwin, before an on-camera tribute to Bigelow by Lawrence Weiner. The festivities continued as Gwyneth Paltrow introduced electro-pop-folk artist Garrett Borns of The Borns, who performed his hit single “Electric Love” along with covers like Elton John’s “Benny and the Jets.” The night was a huge success, raising $3.6 million towards LACMA’s film initiatives and future exhibitions, acquisitions and programming.
