What happens when Versace and The Whitney Museum come together to celebrate Leonard A. LauderThe Whitney Studio Party! More than 1,000 prominent members in the art, fashion, media, business and corporate communities turned out last night in support of The Whitney Museum of American Art’s Gala and Studio Party sponsored by Versace.

Chaired by Penelope Cruz, Liz Swig and Donatella Versace with a special guest performance by Jennifer Hudson, the evening was filled with high fashion and contemporary art. Patrons donned haute couture and enjoyed the glitz and the glamour of New York's elite, while musing at the spectacle that is Lindsay Lohan, or, as she was comically dubbed, the night's "haute mess."  Always a glamorous affair, the party included many notable and beautifully attired patrons of the arts (for more of our Whitney Studio Party coverage, GO HERE).
