Fashion And Art Are One And The Same At MoMA Party

Ron Arad's Installation on the 6th Floor. [Photo via MoMA]. Have you seen the Ron Arad retrospective at MoMA? It's awesome. , Hamish Bowles, Bar Rafaeli, Erin Lucas and Mary J Blige all checked it out last night, at a party celebrating the exhibit on the sixth floor. DJ Paul Sevigny was spinning, and the crowd was so fashionable it was hard to decide whether to look at the art on display or the art people were wearing.

In the end, though, Arad's art won out, as guests were drawn to sectional chairs and swelling sofas. The gallery itself made for the perfect party atmosphere, with the dark blue walls and enormous installation. As scintillating as the party last night was, this exhibit stands on its on, even without champagne and Josh Hartnett: definitely check it out before in closes next month.
