This last Saturday the LACMA Art + Film Gala took place, and needless to say, there were a lot of looks worth your attention. Let’s start with the Black beauty that is Jodie Turner-Smith.
The gorgeous actress donned a custom Gucci fuchsia and pink dress, complete with matching feathery sleeves that left part of the shoulders bare.
As the face of the Gucci High Jewelry campaign, Turner-Smith completed her look with pieces from the ‘Hortus Deliciarum‘ collection–including earrings, a bracelet and rings.
To finish off the look, she wore a pair of silver Gucci Crawford 140 platform leather sandals in Metallic and she brought with her a Gucci silver leather Tiger Head clutch.
Manicurist Thuy Nguyen decorated Jodie‘s nails with little crystals, keeping the base nude.
The 2021 Gala honored American artists Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley along with Steven Spielberg. LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio co-chaired the event for the tenth consecutive year.
Notables from the art, film, fashion, and entertainment industries gather at LACMA for this Gala which honors influential artists.
Proceeds go toward underwriting LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission. This includes exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational programming that explore the intersection of art and film.
LACMA Productions is an award-winning extension of the museum’s film initiative. Over the last years, along with the establishment of the Art+Film initiative, LACMA has dedicated resources to producing a series of short documentary films on artists. Commissioned from emerging and mid-career filmmakers, the museum’s short documentaries have earned official selections at leading international film festivals.
