Guggenheim International Gala 2019
The fashion and art worlds collided at the annual Guggenheim International Gala. In honor of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum’s 60th anniversary and it’s addition to the UNESCO World Heritage List, the attendees had a lot to celebrate Wednesday night. Presented by Dior, the gala was filled to the brim with bright, young stars dressed in their best. Left and right, the rotunda was lined with Dior-clad celebrities including Jourdan Dunn, Maggie Rogers, Nina Dobrev, and Olivia Palermo.
French artist Christine and the Queens gave an electrifying performance, which fired up the night. The french-disco-funk sounds of the show had the crowd dancing all about. Christine was also dressed by Dior for the night. Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri worked with the artist on exciting costumes that could account for her signature dancing on stage. The excitement continued with a DJ set from Caroline Polachek.
After the concerts, the attendees were free to explore the Guggenheim’s exhibitions. The main showcase of the night was the new show Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection, a curated collection from the museum’s archives. The night was a true celebration of the arts and the guests looked fabulous while celebrating.
