Top Secret Art Production Fund Gala Draws Gowns, Gloves, Weird Wigs

Art Production Fund co-founders Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen with director Casey Fremont Crowe

I’m sorry, but I’m under strict orders not to tell you where this glitzy gala took place. I know it may sound bit crazy, but unfortunately the private club on the Upper East Side that hosted the event doesn’t want to be named, so you’ll just have to use your imagination in order to get in on the fun.

Anyway, the Art Production Fund’s “White Glove Gone Wild” Gala was attended by a blinged-out mix of art, fashion, and Hollywood partygoers. And indeed they did get wild. There was no shortage of entertainment, including portraiture by Marilyn Minter, temporary tattoos by Wangechi Mutu, and a voyeuristic performance piece by Vanessa Beecroft—unfortunately no photos of the performance were permitted, so you’ll have to trust it was spectacular (multicolored wigs were involved).

However, many photos were taken of the guests, all of whom were dressed fabulously, of course, enjoying Dom Pérignon and music by DJ Rachel Chandler Guinness.

Have a look at the gowns, gloves, and everything we’re allowed to show:
