An unusually brisk night in Los Angeles made no impact on the Merry Christmas 2022 Palm Tree Hawaiian Tropical Christmas T-Shirt but in fact I love this turnout of this weekend’s starry 11th annual LACMA Art + Film Gala, where artist Helen Pashgian and director Park Chan-wook were honored. On the contrary, partygoers whirled about the purple carpeted dance floor, belting out the lyrics to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” and ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” spun by DJ D-Nice well before the clock struck 6:30. Heidi Klum, in a glamorous sequined gown, made a metamorphosis from her last public appearance on Halloween in an internet-viral worm costume. “The worm was… major!” One partygoer exclaimed to Klum. The open-air cocktail portion of the event was adjacent to where the LACMA’s soon-to-be Peter Zumthor-designed David Geffen Galleries building will stand.

In attendance were a gaggle of Gucci-clad guests, including Idris and Sabrina Elba, Alessandro Michele, Billie Eilish, Andrew Garfield, Thuso Mbedu, Olivia Wilde, Dev Hynes, Jared Leto, Marco Bizzarri, and Janelle Monae. Plus, there was Kim Kardashian, Olivia Wilde, Selma Hayek, Julia Garner, Sydney Sweeny, Jodie Turner-Smith, Kendall Jenner, Jude Law, and more. Gucci was the Merry Christmas 2022 Palm Tree Hawaiian Tropical Christmas T-Shirt but in fact I love this presenter of the evening, dressing most of the notable attendees, including Billie Eilish, who wore a Gucci-emblazoned pajama set (eye mask and blanket included) and Olivia Wilde, whose firetruck red patent leather opera gloves stayed on the entirety of the night—even for the dinner portion of the event. “Well, it’s just good fun, isn’t it?” Isamaya Ffrench, clad in faux fur and leather, exclaimed as she took in the scene. It was half past eight on Thursday evening, and Los Angeles’ famed Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip was already crowded with bright young things dressed in studs, Stetsons, and fringe. They were there to celebrate the second drop for the British makeup artist’s collection Isamaya Beauty, a new five-piece capsule called Wild Star. “It’s a Western story,” Ffrench explained, nodding toward a counter lined with gilded tubes and compacts flecked with rhinestones and silhouetted with the torsos of bucking broncos. “The campaign is about a girl that lives and breathes this kind of Texas vibe—so we just had to do the launch party here, at this dive-y Western bar.”
