The best Gucci-fied looks at this year’s LACMA Art+Film Gala
LACMA Art+Film Gala is back for its tenth annual celebration honouring influential American artists. This last 6th of November, notable artists and industry leaders from fashion, art, film and entertainment gathered at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to celebrate artists Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley and Academy Award-winning filmmaker, Steven Spielberg. This year’s gala was co-chaired by the “Culture Queen of Los Angeles” Eva Chow and Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Both have co-chaired the event for ten consecutive years.
The Art+Film Gala is a fund-raising event that will benefit LACMA’s future initiatives and exhibitions in regard to film, art, and entertainment.
As the center of entertainment culture, the red carpet (or in this case, blue carpet) fashion game was an exciting one. Think of it as LA’s version of Met Gala except it’s at least 85% less campy. The Gala was presented by Gucci which means that most of the stars who attended that night were dressed in head-to-toe Gucci. It truly could not have been more perfect too since the Gala was only a few days after Gucci’s Love Parade show; expertly showcased on Hollywood Boulevard.
Actresses like Jodie Turner-Smith wore a dazzling hot pink Gucci gown complete with padded shoulders and fur sleeves. Olivia Wilde on the other hand–also wearing Gucci– was donned in a gorgeous long-sleeved black sequinned gown embellished with a large butterfly on the chest. Elle Fanning went for the risque route as she walked down the carpet wearing a sheer black cut-out dress.
The celebrated artists of the night were also wearing Gucci. Painter Amy Sherald showed up in a sheer yet adorable blush pink gown adorned with cat embroidery. Seriously, just adorable. Visual artist Kehinde Wiley also wore Gucci in a form of a black floral-embroidered tuxedo.
There were also different variations of Gucci that night. Miley Cyrus wore a Gucci x Balenciaga floral suit, and Christine Chiu wore a vintage Gucci by Tom Ford gown.
Now, just because the event was presented by Gucci, it doesn’t mean that everyone has to wear it. Some notable looks of the night actually came from Saint Laurent: a striking minimalist white gown worn by Hailey Bieber and an equally simple yet stunning black gown worn by Sydney Sweeney. Jamie Xie went all out with a superb two-piece set in all shades of blue made by Japanese designer, Tomo Koizumi.
