Last night, Century City was beaming with star power in a celebration of feminine beauty at the Annenberg Space for Photography's opening of Beauty Culture, an exhibit featuring works by iconic photographers such as Herb Ritts, Man Ray, Bert Stern, and Jean-Paul Goude. See who joined the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Katie Holmes, and Halle Berry for this special night of photography and some burlesque courtesy of Dita Von Teese.

Wallis Annenberg and the Board of Directors of the Annenberg Foundation meant business when they decided to put together an photo exhibition that explores how feminine beauty is defined, challenged and revered in modern society.  Beauty Culture brings together the images of renowned photographers Albert Watson, Bert Stern, Herb Ritts, Man Ray, Jean-Paul Goude, Guy Bourdin, Horst, Melvin Sokolsky, Matthew Rolston, Philippe Halsman, Lauren Greenfield, and Tyen.
