NEW YORK: Chelsea
The annual Whitney Gala this year was sponsored in part by Louis Vuitton and held at Skylight Studios at Moynihan Station on 33rd Street in Chelsea adjacent to Hell’s Kitchen. Although the step and repeat where photos were taken (red carpet) clearly outlined “Hollywood” in lettering, there we few celebrities in attendance. Honorary chairs included one actress, Michelle Williams, along with Emily Fisher Landau, Leonard A. Lauder and Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet. The celebration of art was showcased by implied and fully nude models who bravely posed late into the evening for “cocktail art” (in optional black tie).
