MoMA Brings Mayor Bloomberg, Hugh Jackman, And Karen O Together At Last
“I’m only here for one reason,” said Hugh Jackman. “To get this party started.”
Mission accomplished. Jackman was at MoMA to announce Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who gave a raucous performance for a crowd that included Mayor Bloomberg and about as many art-world heavies as are allowed in one room at one time. The dress code was black tie, but MoMA being MoMA, a few took it with a grain of salt. Chuck Close was wearing his tuxedo jacket but shrugged off sartorial inquiries to talk about his gorgeous companion, Sienna (she, for the record, was wearing a taupe raw-silk dress). And more than a few ladies piled on the color: Karen O, onstage, opted for a riot-colored batwing-sleeved tunic dress (pictured); Nicole Miller, in the crowd, was wearing a layered blue and green gown. Ronald Lauder, the evening’s honoree (along with Jo Carole Lauder), surveyed the crowd with a smile. “I very much approve,” he said. “They are beautiful.” As arguably the U.S.’s premiere beauty magnate, he should know.
