At Diane Von Furstenberg's studio last night, animal lovers gathered for the Humane Society of New York's Third Benefit Photography Auction. DVF, Adrien Brody, Tim Gunn, and Grace Coddington were among the many guests.-
The studio was transformed into a gallery environment, with photographs lining the walls. Featured artists included Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Gregory Colbert, and more. Photographer Martha Swope, was honored with a personal exhibit of the photos she took of the New York City Ballet, Martha Graham Dance Company, Dance Theater of Harlem, and multiple Broadway productions.
The auction benefited the Humane Society of New York, which helps care for stray or rescued animals. They nurse the animal back to health, and prepare the cat or dog for adoption.
So does this mean that the Fashion Forward guests will go fur-less from now on?
