Gucci was the presenter of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s (LACMA) second annual Art + Film Gala honoring filmmaker Stanley Kubrick and artist Ed Ruscha at LACMA.  Co-chaired by actor Leonardo DiCaprio and LACMA Trustee Eva Chow, the evening celebrated the art of the moving image and brought together luminaries from both communities. 

“LACMA's unprecedented commitment to honoring film alongside fine art at such a dynamic institution in Los Angeles is an inspiration to Gucci, as we further our longstanding commitment to the preservation and celebration of the arts," said Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. "We are proud to support LACMA's vision, and to join Eva Chow, Michael Govan and Leonardo DiCaprio for the second year in a row to honor Stanley Kubrick and Ed Ruscha, two truly inspiring and influential artists."

 
The evening started with cocktails and a surprise performance by Evan Rachel Wood singing The Very Thought of You and I Don’t Know. During the dinner Florence + The Machine entertained guests with a selection of their most well-known songs. 
 
The following attended the event wearing Gucci: 
Amy Adams, Jamie Bell, Asia Chow, Eva Chow, Josh Dallas, Cameron Diaz, Andrew Dominik, Chris Evans, Jane Fonda, Ginnifer Goodwin, Michael Govan, Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers, Salma Hayek-Pinault, Amber Heard, Bella Heathcote, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karlie Kloss, Minka Kelly, Elvis Mitchell, Robert Pattinson, Ed and Danna Ruscha, KO Soo, KO So-Young, Sebastian Stan, Amber Valletta, Kerry Washington, Florence Welch, Evan Rachel Wood.
 
Proceeds from the gala will be used to support LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission. This includes a robust film program led by Film Independent’s Elvis Mitchell, as well as exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational programming, in addition to screenings that explore the intersection of art and film.
