The Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art was the location for last night's annual Apollo Circle Benefit Dance. This year's theme was "Gilded Pleasure" and was hosted by Carolina Herrera who looked radiant.  The Apollo Circle is a memebership for individuals ages 21-39 to help support the Met's conservation departments.
