Last night, ACRIA celebrated 20 years of AIDS service and activism with a grandiose holiday party honoring Drew Barrymore and innovative photographers Inez & Vinoodh. The A-list event was hosted by ACRIA Executive Director Benjamin Bashein along with Francesca Amfitheatrof of Tiffany & Co., Ross Bleckner, Francisco Costa, InStyle’s Ariel Foxman, Donna Karan, and Julianne Moore. Held at the landmark Cunard Building, the not-so-intimate dinner for 400 saw an exquisite atmosphere filled with overgrown foliage, trailing vines, and an excess of pomegranates on all the tables. Glamorous, seasonal, and for a great cause.
Who was there: Guests included Drew Barrymore, Julianne Moore, Vinoodh Matadin, Inez van Lamsweerde, Giovanna Battaglia, Daphne Groeneveld, Benjamin Bashein, Zoe Buckman, Jack Pierson, Phillip Lim, Manrepeller’s Leandra Medine, Meredith Melling, SUNO’s Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, Kate Foley, Bryanboy, Kate Lanphear, Zani Gugelmann, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, Casey Fremont, Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, Brandon Maxwell, Eddie Borgo, Gigi Burris, Eva Fehren, Jonathan Simkai, Jill Kargman, and Bruce Weber.
