The stars—both the art world and Hollywood variety—came out for last night’s Guggenheim International Gala. The event raised $2.7 million to support the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and honored the director Richard Armstrong, who is retiring in 2023 after 15 years in the post.

Prior to a seated dinner courtesy of vaunted chef Rōze Traore, guests toured the exhibition “Alex Katz: Gathering” and were treated to a performance by singer Norah Jones.

Attendees included White Lotus star Alexandra Daddario, The Woman King’s Thuso Mbedu, Rachel Brosnahan, Nina Dobrev, Maye Musk, Amelie Zilber, Nicole Warne, and artists Angel Otero, Sarah Sze, Hank Willis Thomas, Mickalene Thomas, Jeff Koons, Peter Marino, Christopher Wool, Rashid Johnson, and Nick Cave.

This was the 10th anniversary of Dior’s partnership with the museum for the fundraiser, and many attendees were decked out in the luxury label’s couture.

Here are some views of the glamorous evening.
