On Tuesday, a crowd of art lovers, philanthropists and celebrities gathered at Sotheby's New York to join The New York Academy of Art for their 28th Annual Art Auction Benefit, Take Home a Nude. The night began with a silent auction and reception where mingling partygoers, Sant Ambroeus hors d'oeuvres and Milagro tequila shots circled the room. 

VIPs like Brooke Shields and Cynthia Rowley admired work from featured artists including John Currin, Tracey Emin, Eric Fischl, and Damian Loeb. Victoria's Secret model Martha Hunt glowed in a stunning red slip dress from Galvan. The night ended with a live auction and seated dinner and raised over $1.1 million for student scholarships and programs at The New York Academy of Art.
