Fashion Hits & Misses: The LACMA Art + Film Gala

Well, well, well, Los Angeles cleans up nicely, on occasion. This past weekend, celebs turned out for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Art + Film Gala, which honored Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick. The event was majorly sponsored by Gucci, and virtually every celeb turned out decked in the designer’s fashions. While it’s a big night for seeing and being seen, the gala also serves a more pedestrian function; more than $3.5 million was raised for the museum.

“This is how New York imagines that L.A. art world operates,” one attendee told the Los Angeles Times. “And it does — but only for one night.” Good, or I was going to get jealous.

In any case, let’s check out what they were wearing, mmkay?
