Marta Minujín, Esteban Cortazar, Cesar Reyes and Julio Reyes Copello Honored at El Museo del Barrio Gala

THE ART OF THE MATTER: Thursday’s El Museo del Barrio gala turned out to be a record-breaking occasion, generating $ 1.1 million for the museum.
Guests like Maria Eugenia Maury, Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, Yolanda Santos, Monika McLennan and Eugenia Sucre ramped up the fashion at the 25th annual event at The Plaza. Conceptual and performance artist Marta Minujín was honored with the Excellence in the Arts award. In honor of her vibrant art, there were centerpieces of neon-colored geometric-shaped Styrofoam, and larger sculptural pieces lined the south side of the ballroom. In presenting the award, Tony Bechara spoke of how Minujín was “at the vanguard of the Sixties, engaging in the famous happenings along with the likes of [Richard] Rauschenberg, [Merce] Cunningham and [John] Cage. Marta collaborated with Warhol in The Factory and that generation. Her films and photography were at the cutting edge of that movement. Her performances and installations are evocative and genius and persist to today to baffle and delight.”
Her performance and conceptual art has been shown at the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, among other places. “Marta has been prescient in understanding the nuances of the power of media before social

Demi Moore Honored as a Visionary Woman at L.A. Gala

Demi Moore got her moment in the spotlight on International Women’s Day when Visionary Women, an L.A.-based nonprofit organization focused female empowerment and advancement, honored the actress and activist with its inaugural Visionary Woman Award for her work to combat human trafficking. Moore, cofounder of the nonprofit organization THORN, picked up her award at Spago Beverly Hills on Thursday night.
Moore’s friends Adam Sandler and his wife Jackie, Shepard Fairey, Eric Buterbaugh, Soleil Moon Frye, Maye Musk and others were on hand to support her, along with her daughters Scout and Tallulah.
“Demi’s strength and dedication in her career and charitable endeavors are what make her the epitome of a visionary woman,” said Angella Nazarian, cofounder of Visionary Women. To date, THORN’s work has led to the arrest of 6,500 child sex traffickers.
“We don’t have to fight much, we just need to unite,” said Moore. “The power of our collective is only going to bring the light and the success to an even greater level.”
The affair, sponsored by Cartier, was one of several events with a fashion tie-in taking place to celebrate International Women’s Day. Jonathan Simkhai teamed up with activist Janet Mock at The Standard Hollywood to promote Ring

Naeem Khan Designs Feathered Dress for Houston Gala Chair

BLACK SWAN: Guests at The Houston Ballet Ball were encouraged to don black, white or a mix of both as an ode to Tchaikovsky’s ballet “Swan Lake,” but Houston Ballet Ball chair Hallie Vanderhider took the concept further — much further, enlisting the design prowess of Naeem Khan to create her feather-laden gown.
Vanderhider and Tootsies creative director Fady Armanious flew to New York and met with Khan to discuss a gown that would capture the elegance and dark beauty that Vanderhider had envisioned for the ball. Within a few sketches, the trio had landed upon an all-black gown covered in 3,500 natural black coque feathers, weighing in at 7.25 pounds.
“It was a magical moment. Naeem totally captured the essence of Swan Lake,” Vanderhider said. “He is such an amazing talent and has a great sense of humor.”
Khan encouraged Vanderhider to embrace the mysterious elements of the dress, reminding her, “This isn’t a mother-of-the-bride gown.” The gown’s sheer long sleeves and bodice were finished with intricate beading.

The MAXXI Museum Holds Fundraising Gala Dinner in Rome

MILAN — The MAXXI, Rome’s Museum of the Arts for the 21st Century, held its annual “Acquisition Gala Dinner” in Rome on Monday.
The fifth-annual fund-raising event, aimed at preserving and improving the museum’s permanent collection, drew more than 500 guests, including Roberta Armani; Nicola and Beatrice Bulgari; Fendi chief executive officer Pietro Beccari, who is leaving the Roman company and will join Dior at the beginning of 2018; Daniel and Florance Guerlain, and Italian entrepreneur Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.

Giovanna Melandri, president of MAXXI Foundation, underscored the importance of the synergies between public institutions and private firms. She also highlighted that in 2016, the museum’s self-financing accounted for 42 percent, while the “Acquisition Gala Dinner” aims to raise private funds.
The attendees were welcomed by an installation created by artist and photographer Michel Comte called “Light” and unveiled for the occasion. The artwork focuses on the global warming issue and features a video projection on the museum’s façade and a sculpture in the lobby.
Inside, a seated dinner — provided by Italian Michelin-starred chef Cristina Bowerman — followed a musical performance by Lebanese musicians Tarek Atoui and Mazen Kerbaj.

Charlize Theron, Brie Larson Attend Porter’s Incredible Women Gala 2017

Porter, Net-a-porter’s print magazine, on Wednesday held its second annual Incredible Women Gala at NeueHouse West Hollywood, in association with Estée Lauder. Hosted by editor in chief Lucy Yeomans and Universal chairman Donna Langley, the event drew Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, Elizabeth Banks, Mary J. Blige, Melanie Griffith, Raquel Welch, Kate Bosworth and more.
The Incredible Women list, now in its third year, grew out of a cover line on Porter’s first issue. It has since spawned a talk series that began with Christy Turlington Burns in 2014 and has included American Ballet Theater principal dancer Misty Copeland, film director Sofia Coppola and Serpentine chief executive officer Yana Peel. The first gala was held last year in London at the V&A Museum.
Partnering with Langley, who was profiled in the magazine in the past, made sense since this year’s list of 50 women was focused on the entertainment industry. The timing of this year’s gala comes when women in the industry have banded together in support of speaking out against sexual harassment. The magazine commissioned women including Copeland, Larson and the organizers of the Women’s March, Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, to write open letters touching upon crucial issues facing women in

Vera Wang Celebrates Chinese Heritage and American Upbringing at China Institute’s Blue Cloud Gala

BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.
The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.
Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”
Derek Lam also turned up to support Wang. She later told the crowd how growing up in the U.S., her parents Cheng Ching and Florence Wang encouraged her to embrace American culture, never allowing her to forget her Chinese heritage. That delicate balance was what provided her and her brother “with such a unique view of the world and a sincere appreciation for both cultures,” she said.

Jennifer Garner Gets Chummy with Joe Biden and Olivia Wilde at Annual Save the Children Illumination Gala

Jennifer Garner had a fun –and charitable! — night out in New York City on Wednesday.

The actress attended the annual Save the Children Illumination Gala as a guest this year after serving as host for the last three outings. She posed with former Vice President Joe Biden on the carpet and was seen catching up with Olivia Wilde before taking pictures.

The Butter star, 45, later ditched her high heels and slipped on sneakers during the auction portion of the night as she ran around and gave signed Rex Ryan footballs to people who pledged contributions.

Garner also presented the Visionary Award to fashion brand BVLGARI North America and talked about her recent trip to Houston with Save the Children in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

“As flood waters receded, we expanded our response to include childcare programs because childcare centers…provide essential care after a disaster so that parents can rebuild their lives, put their lives back together, return to work,” Garner said. “Save the Children has chosen to make childcare recovery one of our signature programs in the United States, and today we’re helping more than 1,500 centers in Texas restore their services.”

Garner documented her trip to the area on her new Instagram page, giving followers a look at her interacting with children in the area.

The actress serves as a benefactor for the organization and spoke in front of Congress members at a hearing on Capitol Hill in March.

Ava DuVernay, Hilton Als to Be Honored at Hammer Gala

The Hammer Museum’s 15th Annual Gala in the Garden is set take place in Los Angeles on Oct. 14, co-chaired by Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier, Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto and Jenni, Maggie and Saree Kayne.
This year’s honorees include “Selma” director Ava DuVernay and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and critic Hilton Als. Ms. DuVernay will receive a tribute from director J.J.

‘Hot Convict’ Jeremy Meeks Hangs With Nicki Minaj At AmFAR Gala

”Hot Convict” Jeremy Meeks is making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival

Meeks attended the amfAR gala on Thursday night. Dressed in all black with diamond skulls on his loafers, he smoldered on the red carpet before mingling with stars.

At the gala, Meeks mingled with various guests, including Nicki Minaj and designer Philipp Plein. 

Meeks walked at Philipp Plein’s resort 2018 show in Cannes on Wednesday. The model appeared alongside Paris Hilton at the show and spent time time with Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.

Adorable Kids Recreate Met Gala Looks

For over six years, photographer Tricia Messeroux has been recreating iconic style moments with adorable kids through a project she calls Toddlewood. Her latest photo shoot brilliantly tackles the incredible fashion at the 2017 Met Gala.

“I was excited but nervous to give the Met Gala the Toddlewood treatment,” Messeroux told HuffPost. “The Met Gala is the gold standard for high fashion and creative costumes by some of the most amazing designers.” 

Messeroux make-up artist Shameika Simmons, hair stylist Peta-Gaye Antoine and wardrobe designers Mo Glover and Quianna Mercurius to transform a group of kids, ages 3 to 6 into the standout stars of the Met Gala red carpet. 

The photographer said it took 48 hours to make the designs, and for the first time ever, she put her camera down to work on the costumes ― along with some help from Michaels craft stores and her daughters, Skylar and Sunday.

“Mini Rihanna’s dress was the biggest challenge, so I did it myself,” Messeroux said. “It was the best arts and crafts project my daughters and I have ever done.” Photos of “mini Rihanna” quickly went viral on Twitter.

Messeroux was excited to pay homage to Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons, especially because she plans to launch her own line of high fashion costumes called “Toddlewood Red Carpet Stars” just before Halloween.

“The line features costumes inspired by this year’s award season (Golden Globes, Grammys and The Oscars) as well as the mega event for fashionable costumes, The Met Gala,” she told HuffPost.

Messeroux said the kids had a blast wearing the costumes and posing for pictures. 

“The Migos boys were on cloud nine,” she told HuffPost. “We even put on the song ‘Bad and Boujee’ to keep their swagger going. Mini-Anna Wintour loved knowing that she was the queen of the night. Mini Janelle Monae loved the feathers.” 

Though the girl who dressed as Rihanna loved her outfit, she was admittedly happy to get out of it by the end of the shoot, as it wasn’t the easiest to walk in.

“All the kids had funny one liners and silliness like kids do,” said Messeroux. “Great day for dress up.”

Keep scrolling and visit the Toddlewood Instagram to see more of the Met Gala series and some behind-the-scenes photos.

Derek Lam Tapped as Host, Chair, Mentor for Cerebral Palsy Foundation Gala

UNIVERSAL DESIGN: Design students were charged with weaving the theme of fashion and innovation into their pieces for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation’s Design for Disability Gala.
The event, scheduled for May 16, has Derek Lam serving as the evening’s official host and honorary chair.

It’s been a treat for all of us to experience firsthand his thoughts on fabric selection, workmanship and the power of fashion.”

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin Do Some Last-minute Shopping with A$AP Rocky Before the Met Gala

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin were spotted shopping in casual clothes ahead of fashion prom: the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Met Gala, set for Monday in New York City.

Jenner, 21, opted for high waisted boyfriend jeans, enormous hoop earrings and a white cropped knit for the Sunday shopping trip while Baldwin, 20, wore a black and yellow varsity jacket and skinny black pants.

Rapper A$ AP Rocky was also with Jenner inside a store. The pair’s rumored romance began last June, and they were most recently spotted at Coachella together, where they flirted during his set at Jeremy Scott’s party.

The young models have graced the event’s hot red carpet before, each rocking stunning looks at the 2016 Manus x Machina red carpet for the gala. Jenner framed her supermodel bod in an Atelier Versace gown, then kept the rest simple with white Versace heels, a sleek ponytail and Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. Baldwin picked a fully sequin black-and-silver long-sleeve Tommy Hilfger gown with vertical stripes, plus Boudani earrings, Noudar rings, strappy heels and a high pony.

Jenner’s debut at the black tie fête was back in 2014, and she went for a full-on princess moment in a custom blush mermaid-style Topshop gown and 82 carats of Chopard diamonds around her neck.

A royal patron of the institution since 2012, she visited the gallery and viewed the latest exhibitions including Absent Friends, Claude Cahun, Howard Hodgkin and Gillian Wearing. She also saw two commissions specially made for the gala. One exhibit included ten masks designers by Vivienne Westwood and Philip Treacy while the other featured 100 postcards, which are a part of a mystery portrait postcard charity fundraiser sale.

Annette Bening: Honored at New York Stage & Film Gala/ Mother Writ-Large in Mike Mills’ Twentieth Century Women

“If I were a woman,” Rob Reiner said in a video of congratulatory messages for Annette Bening at the Plaza Hotel where this sublime actress was feted at the New York Stage & Film Gala, “I’d be jealous.” Even those of us attending, with so many who worked with her or want to work with her, including Billy Crudup, John Patrick Shanley, Peter Gallagher, Julianne Marguiles, Jennifer Westfeldt, Greta Gerwig, a who’s who of stage, television, and screen including her co-honoree David Rockwell, admired Bening’s stellar career on stage and in movies– some favorites include American Beauty, The Grifters, and The Kids are All Right. Next up she is Irina in Chekhov’s The Seagull. With her husband Warren Beatty who was also present, she is Hollywood royalty.

But to hear her speak, she’s all about the work, and incredibly grounded. The next day at Bistro Milano, Bening joined Greta Gerwig and Mike Mills, her director in the new movie Twentieth Century Women, for a panel discussion. As was his wont in Beginners, a movie hewing close to the life of Mills’ father, this movie features a whimsical mother figure casually limning the life of his, Dorothea Fields, in California in the ’70’s, played so well by Annette Bening, she is sure to be nominated for this year’s Best Actress Oscar. Mills said he learned from the poet Allen Ginsberg about creating drama inspired by his life. Twentieth Century Women is not too far from everyone’s sense of the 1970’s, the artifacts especially. Annette Bening recounted her saying to Mike Mills, as they were making the film, you want to see that macramé bag. I have that macramé bag, and sure enough, she unearthed it.

This Is The Actual Inspiration Behind Those Crazy Outfits At The Met Gala

Monday night’s Met Gala left onlookers speechless with the elaborate gowns and overall commitment to the theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”

This year the annual exhibit, which opens up to the public at the Metropolitan Museum of Art shortly after the eve of the gala, examines the relationship between hand-made and machine made garments over time. The result? An even bigger display of mind-blowing gowns than those usually seen on the red carpet. 

The museum’s website explains that the exhibit, which features over 150 ensembles, will “address the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of mass production.”

There are feathers! There is intricate design! And if you thought the train on Zoe Saldana’s dress was long, well:

 

Enough said.  

Feast your eyes on the gorgeous gowns below, and if you’re in New York, be sure to visit the exhibit, which runs May 5 to August 14.

Jourdan Dunn on Her Two Met Gala 2016 Balmain Looks: ‘I Felt Really Good About Myself’

If you thought Jourdan Dunn killed it with her two Met Gala looks—both by Balmain—you’re not the only one. The British model herself agrees with you. “Last night I felt really good about myself,” she told PeopleStyle when we caught up with her on the set of a campaign shoot today. She paired the look with Stuart Weitzman heels and Eva Fehren jewelry.

Dunn fell right in line with the night’s overall trend: Bold silver gowns with a robot-like inspiration, a perfect fit for the Met Gala’s theme of ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.’ Kim Kardashian, Kylie Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Cindy Crawford, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes joined Dunn in wearing Balmain and, together, they walked the carpet as the #BalmainArmy, a hashtag the fashion house created in the past (and has stuck as a way to describe fans of the brand).

Instagram Photo

For Dunn’s look, she worked directly with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing. “Olivier sent two sketches—one was a short one and one was a long one,” she explained. “I was drawn to the long one, I thought it was amazing. When I had my fitting for it, it all came together.” As soon as her glam squad got a whiff of the direction, they suggested she pair the look with gray, silvery hair. “I thought it was a cool idea,” she said.

Instagram Photo

But despite the fact that she looked calm and collected in all of the photos, she admitted it’s actually a very nerve-wracking experience. “There are people everywhere, like waiting for you to walk out of your hotel and then all the paparazzi,” she said. “ It’s huge. So I was in the car, and I was nervous. But once I got on the red carpet, I just had to own it and feel myself.”

Instagram Photo

RELATED PHOTOS: Every Gorgeous Gown at the 2016 Met Gala

It’s a long way that she’s come from her first gala appearance in 2009 (below, with Karlie Kloss). “I remember when I first attended seven years ago, I felt so out of place and like I shouldn’t really be there,” she said. “Now I feel I do deserve to be here, I’ve worked hard. I like being in that mind frame.”

Jourdan Dunn First Met Gala LookErik C. Pendzich/REX/Shutterstock


After the gala concluded, Dunn slipped into a black sequined mini Balmain to head downtown to the Gilded Lily after-party. “The second look is all about being able to move and dance and just feel good,” she said. “With a Balmain dress, sometimes that’s a bit impossible because they’re so structured. But in my fitting, Olivier wanted to make sure I was able to move. It’s all about something fun and be able to move and get down in and look good in.”

But she didn’t change in the car. “Some people do that but I went back to my hotel, chilled, refreshed my makeup and changed really quick and headed out,” she said. (And no, the Army did not travel together.)

RELATED PHOTOS: The Biggest Trends at the 2016 Met Gala

So, how can regular people get into the #BalmainArmy? There’s no boot camp, unfortunately, she said. “I don’t know how I became a member,” she added, “but I’m happy to be in the army.”

Who Ditched Her Dress When She Got Inside? Who Mistook the Curator for a Waiter? Met Gala Gossip You’ll Love

You never imagine the perfectly-coiffed and legendarily cool Anna Wintour putting a single foot wrong, but the longtime host of the Met Gala (and thus, star of the upcoming documentary about it, The First Monday in May) admits that she got caught on camera a couple times doing just that — and sometimes the foot was in her mouth. “People who make documentaries are really sneaky people,” she told PEOPLE. “They just follow you around until you make a complete fool of yourself.”

Christina Ricci Met Gala photoKevin Mazur/Getty; Ray Tamarra/Getty


But she seems to have a good sense of humor about it — and even admits to getting a little verklempt watching the film. “There is a really moving scene in the documentary which shows Andrew [Bolton, the exhibit’s curator] just before the exhibition opened last year just walking through the empty galleries,” she said. “Yes, to me that was absolutely the most emotional [moment]: When you see his work coming together at the end.”

So is Bolton enjoying his star turn? “Anna’s the star,” Bolton replied modestly. “I think it captures the work that goes into the shows we do, and also the work that goes into the gala. Bolton related that the most amusing encounter he had with a star was his first year at the Met gala when he was introduced to Jennifer Connelly. “She thought I was a waiter and she asked me to go get her a glass of wine,” he said.

So what did he do? “I got it for her,” said Bolton. “And she’s a bad tipper.”

Designer Zac Posen recalled another unseen moment. “When I brought Christina Ricci for the Alexander McQueen exhibition,” he said. “She was wearing quite an elaborate dress. She had corset trained through the weekend to wear it. But we knew that training would only allow her to wear it up until a certain moment. From having been an intern at the Met, I know the guards there. So they let me go into a back room right after the first course was served, and I change her into a very transparent, short un-corseted dress. And they carried her gown out through the back entrance to the car in a body bag.”

Supermodel Karolina Kurkova has worn a number of dresses that barely fit in the limo, so much so that she knows exactly how to handle it. “The trick is to sit, and then let someone just shove the dress into the car,” she said. Another highlight every year?“And I have to say the ladies room at the Met is always quite a scene. Everybody is always in there touching up. It will be Jennifer Lopez on one side, and Meryl Streep on the other, Nicole Kidman, Rihanna — that is, if your dress will even fit through the door. At the end of the night, I’ve had to be cut out of a dress many times.”

RELATED PHOTOS: The best dresses at the 2015 Met Gala!

Lauren Hutton also described the ladies room as one of the starriest hangouts. “There are some huge dresses,” she agreed. “The Olsens were in there. That’s part of the fun, helping everybody get in and out of their dresses.”

Rihanna Met Gala 2015Getty


“I loved Rihanna’s dress last year,” said Wendi Deng, a co-host of the 2015 gala. “It was designed by my friend Guo Pei, a Chinese designer. And I’m so proud of her. She works so hard and is so talented. And it helped put her on the map. I saw her later and we had dinner together and she was so happy about it.”

Andre Leon Tally, another star of the documentary, agreed that the most dramatic moment onscreen was: “When Rihanna came up the steps looking fabulous in the Guo Pei coat,” he said. The dress took two years to create and it required a small army to move and place the enormous train for photos on the stairs out front. Ultimately, it was “a moment in time,” Talley said.

Dior Returns as Sponsor of the Guggenheim International Gala

For the third consecutive year, Dior is sponsoring the Guggenheim International Gala in New York. The two-night art party, known as the GIG, supports the museum’s operations, including exhibitions, educational programs and the landmark building. To be held Nov. 4 and 5, the first night is a pre-party — read: younger, hipper — hosted by the Young Collectors Council that will feature a performance by Grimes, the Canadian producer, singer and songwriter also known as Claire Boucher, whose fourth album is due out this fall. The second night is a benefit dinner  honoring artists On Kawara (in memoriam) and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, both the subjects of recent exhibitions, and Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, whose work is on view at the museum through Oct. 12.
Since coming on as a sponsor, Dior has infused the GIG with a new energy. In 2013 DJ Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman) performed at the pre-party. Last year, it was British indie band The xx.

Rihanna’s Met Gala Dress Designer Didn’t Actually Want Her to Wear It

rihanna

Chinese couturier Guo Pei became an international fashion superstar the moment Rihanna took her first step on the Met Gala red carpet in May—but if the designer had her way, RiRi wouldn’t have worn it at all.

“I actually didn’t think the dress was the right one for her,” Guo told WWD. “I thought it would be too heavy and too hot, but she was so touched the moment she put it on.”

Bad-gal RiRi knows what works for her, though. The embroidered cape with fur trim and mile-long train was arguably the most photographed—and talked-about—dress of fashion’s biggest night. Pei revealed that the cape weighs 55 pounds and took nearly two years to make. Talk about conviction!

Apollo Theater Celebrates Its Rich Legacy With 10th Annual Spring Gala

Monday night marked the 10th anniversary of the Apollo Theater’s annual Spring Gala, which was met with much fanfare.

The event, which featured a celebratory benefit concert, was hosted by Extra TV correspondent AJ Calloway and featured star-studded performances from Nile Rodgers and his pioneering disco-funk group Chic, Ne-Yo, Luke James, Rosanne Cash, “The Voice” season 8 contestant Kimberly Nichole and South African a capella trio The Soil.

During his opening monologue, Calloway shared some of his personal experiences and memories of the Apollo.

“I used to sneak into the Apollo when I was in high school,” Calloway said. “I was in [New] Jersey, my parents didn’t know I was here, but I used to watch Amateur Night so I’m very happy to be on this stage. And I started my career here. The first time I was on this stage was ‘106 & Park’ and that was 15 years ago. So I’m really, really happy to be here.”

In addition to Calloway’s return to the Apollo stage, the event also served as a homecoming for Rodgers, who landed his second professional gig performing with the theater’s house band. Prior to taking to the stage to perform a medley of Chic’s biggest hits, Rodgers opened up to The Huffington Post about the significance of headlining this year’s annual gala.

“When I played here I was 19-years-old,” Rodgers said. “I had just finished a year with ‘Sesame Street,’ which was my first professional job. And I was just telling the band how it was the first time I walked out onto this stage. It’s amazing for me to be here now, all these years later playing my own music, which is crazy.”

For Apollo Theater President & CEO, Jonelle Procope the Gala has served as an important part in the theater’s growth for the past 10 years.

“Although the Apollo is now in its 81st year, we have only been a nonprofit since 1991 and I would say it has really been over the last 10 years that the institution has experienced tremendous growth as a nonprofit with expanded artistic, educational and community programs,” Procope said to the Huffington Post.

“The Gala, which is one of our largest fundraisers, has provided crucial support toward those initiatives. It also allows us to celebrate and honor the Apollo’s rich legacy as the musical home for so many legendary artists like Nile Rodgers and the opportunity to continue that legacy as an important springboard for the next generation of artists.”

The benefit, which raises funds for the theater’s education and community outreach programs, also honored James Dolan, President and CEO of Cablevision Systems Corporation and Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, who accepted the Corporate Award on behalf of The Madison Square Garden Company, and Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, who accepted the Percy C. Sutton Civic Leadership Award on behalf of The Ford Foundation.

An Exclusive Peek Inside This Year’s Tony Awards Gala

Answer: Party at the Plaza Hotel into the wee hours!

Question: This Sunday at the American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards, after the last circular medallion is handed out at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, what happens next?

For the fifth year, the nominees, presenters and other VIPs hightail it to the famous and historic Plaza Hotel for a Tony gala for the ages. “We’re the only event that takes over the entirety of the Plaza Hotel including the Todd English Food Court, the Palm Court and the Terrace Room. That makes it very special,” says Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, which presents the Tony Awards along with the American Theatre Wing.

This year’s theme is Marie Antoinette with shades of pink, flowers and crystal galore. “It’s very Versailles-looking, which certainly matches the decor of the Plaza,” says St. Martin. In fact, the shindig has been in the works for an entire year. As Heather Hitchens, president of the American Theatre Wing explains, “The Tonys is June 7. On June 8, we begin planning next year’s Tonys.”

The glam Tony gala is a collaboration of 24 different businesses. So what can the partygoers expect at this year’s gala? For a preview of the big night (from 1,800 glasses of champagne to 1,500 pieces of shrimp), click on this story at Parade.com

9 Met Gala Dresses You Won’t Appreciate Until You See Them From the Back

Hate to see her go but love to watch her leave was another trend at Monday’s Met Gala. Stylish celebs went all out with trains and many of them, like Sarah Jessica Parker, had helpers to get them and their elaborate trains climb up those epic stairs. “I’m on train duty,” said SJP’s date Andy Cohen, who dutifully followed her with a helping hand. Lady Rihanna had no fewer than three people lifting her showstopping Guo Pei cloak. When asked about the challenges of wearing the look, Rihanna, who seemed to take all her might to get to the top, exclaimed “It’s heavy!”.

Beyonce, who arrived more than an hour after all the guests had settled into dinner inside, had stylist Ty Hunter following her every sashay, arranging her jewel-encrusted tulle train just so. Kim Kardashian’s feathered confection didn’t fare quite as well. While Kanye carefully helped her up the steps, her train left a trail of white feathers in her path. Kind of fitting for Kim, who always leaves her mark. Be sure to see all the dresses here.

Here’s What Really Happens on the Met Gala Red Carpet…

Monday night’s Met Gala has given us months, and possibly years, of good fashion fodder. But beyond the gorgeous dresses, don’t you wonder what that majestic red carpet is really like? Well, we found out just for you. Read on for the inside scoops and surprises of fashion’s biggest night.

larry-davidLarry David (Larry David!?) was an early arrival. While most men and women in glittering gowns took their sweet time to sashay up the vertiginous steps, David galloped up them in the blink of an eye. No interviews or posing for him. If we knew any better, we would have clocked his time. We’re on it for next year.

hannah-davis-derek-jeterHannah Davis, here with boyfriend Derek Jeter, looked like she was poured into her crimson J. Mendel, but actually, the dress fit Davis like a glove. No tailoring required. “I went up to Vogue and it just fit perfectly,” the dishy model told us.

joel-mchale-karlie-klossHow did comedian Joel McHale prep for his first-ever Met Gala? He jokes, “I waxed all the hair off my body, then the microdermabrasion, then a large bath, full of whole milk and some vanilla,” he told us. Oh, he also joked that he delivered nine kittens in the car on the way to the museum. “I cut the umbilical cords; it was amazing. Smelled terrible but amazing.”

At Met Gala, ‘HONY’ Photographer Shoots Pics Of Catering Staff And Others Who Don’t Get A Spotlight

Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind the immensely popular Humans of New York site, has a special talent for getting strangers to open up to him. And while he usually prefers to shoot and interview ordinary people he encounters on the streets of the city — so far, he’s photographed more than 5,000 New Yorkers — last night, he focused his lens on one of the most extraordinary events in Manhattan: the Met Gala. Unsurprisingly, while there was no shortage of star power at the ball, Stanton’s interest remained in those whose faces and names you don’t know off the top of your head.

Saturday Night’s Chicest: See the Best Dressed at the Palm Springs Gala

Saturday night was super chic for some of Hollywood’s brightest, with the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala rolling out the first red carpet of note for 2015. There were fun frocks and elegant gowns, and I’ll admit: It was all a little more glam than the ripped jeans and moto boots I was wearing last night.

Reese Witherspoon picked a pearl-embroidered Michael Kors dress that, while slightly more luxurious than classic polka dots, had all the same cheer. The print’s an eternal favorite, but it can read too juvenile if done with frills and bows. Reese’s sharp sleeves keep it utterly grown-up.

Bright dresses like this vivid red-orange pick are sure to stand out—how stunning does Julianne Moore look? By now you probably know I’m an off-the-shoulder addict too, so this one especially wowed me.

Pregnant Blake Lively and Jessica Biel have been showing us major maternity style, and I’m happy that now we have Rosamund Pike to show perfect just-after-baby dressing. She welcomed a little one almost exactly one month ago and for her red carpet return, rocked a trapeze dress with a high hemline for a sexy flash of leg.

We watched The Theory of Everything this weekend (so good!), so I’m feeling especially in love with Felicity Jones. This elegant navy-and-black Monique Lhuillier was divine, and I sincerely hope there were no elevators around…
renee-bargh-velvet-dress-palm-springs-gala-2015
I guess I really have something for dresses that show shoulders, because Renee Bargh’s sleek pick was perfect to me. Rich velvet feels especially now, and the contrast of the high neck and below-the-knee hemline with those spots of skin is fantastic.

Which was your favorite? Anyone else obsessed with off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses too?

Booked for the Evening Gala: Newark Public Library

2014-12-06-BOOKEDFORTHEEVENINGOCT2014.jpg

During a brisk October evening this past fall in downtown Newark, NJ, guests came out to attend a fundraising benefit for The Newark Public Library entitled “Booked For The Evening” and to celebrate The Library’s 125th Anniversary as one of the city’s premiere educational and cultural public institutions.

The Newark Public Library has served as an historical landmark anchored in the heart of the community for over 100 years, providing patrons and citizens with free resources and information to serve their needs, ideas, dreams and hopes.

Over many decades, the Library has welcomed residents from across the country and the world, serving as a global catalyst to help residents cultivate successful personal and professional lives. Currently, the City of Newark is embarking upon a new millennium resurgence of renewal and growth. With a newly elected mayor in office, The Honorable Ras J. Baraka, the city is undergoing rapid and innovative development. The Library is responding in kind to these progressive advancements. “In this environment, we are conscious of the changing needs of our patrons and we continually strive to grow and evolve to meet those needs…” says Wilma Grey, Director, Newark Public Library.

At the Booked for the Evening gala, the Library honored Newark native, Mikki Taylor, for her outstanding professional achievements. Ms. Taylor currently serves as the Editor-At-Large for Essence Magazine and is also an accomplished businesswoman, author and television personality. She is a highly sought after speaker who offers a message of empowerment that encourages women to own their lives, walk in their God-given gifts and honor their purpose. Born and raised in Newark, Ms. Taylor “is proud of this great city where her dreams were nurtured and her purpose began. She is proud to be celebrated by the Newark Public Library where she spent many of her childhood years preparing for her future.”

The evening’s special guest keynote speaker was Arianna Huffington, who is known internationally as the chair, president and editor-in-chief of the online news magazine, The Huffington Post, as well as for her extraordinary success in the field of politics and media. In addition to honoring Ms. Taylor, Arianna discussed her book Thrive, the third metric of redefined success and the need to live a well-balanced life which includes meditating and getting enough rest to prevent burnout so you can live and perform at an optimal level. Guests were gifted with signed copies of the book.

In closing out the evening, Newark Public Library Board of Trustees member Timothy J. Crist noted that the generous supporters of the event “give new energy and hope for the work that lies ahead…in continuing the Library’s mission of expanding horizons and changing lives.”
