Last night the New York Academy of Art held its 18th annual Take Home a Nude art auction and party at Sotheby's. Greg Lauren, Elizabeth Berkley, Heather Graham, Eileen Guggenheim, Cindy Adams, Gigi Mortimer, Liev Schreiber, a pregnant, glowing Padma Lakshmi, Kate and Andy Spade, Thom Browne, Jim Nelson and Evan Yurman showed to raise their paddles in support of need-based scholarships and the endowment fund for the organization's emerging artists, as well as public programs. This guest list continues the Academy's history of counting New York icons and the city's largest arts supporters among its patrons and members, beginning with original trustees Andy Warhol and Tom Wolfe.
