    Last night the Museum of Modern Art hosted their 4th Annual Film Benefit with a glamorous evening of film and fashion.

    The Film Benefit strives to raise funds to ensure additions of great works of cinema to the museum's collection. This year the Academy Award winning writer-director Pedro Almodovar was the guest of honor, being awarded for the work that he has accomplished throughout his career.

    The night seemed to be as much about style as it was celebrating cinema. Chanel was the overwhelming choice of dress for the occasion. An appropriate choice given how the luxury clothing company was the sponser of the event. Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, and Marie-Josée Kravis even co-chaired the event.

    Other guests include Marina Abramović, Elena Anaya, Drew Barrymore, Swizz Beatz, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Hamish Bowles, Jen Brill, Emily Browning, Maureen Chiquet, Barry Diller, Karen Elson, Diane von Furstenberg, John Galantic, Sasha Galantic, Agnes Gund, Emily Haines, Lady Amanda Harlech, Jessica Hart, Alicia Keys, Sebastian Kim, Terence Koh, Karlie Kloss, Blake Lively, Courtney Love, Chloe Moretz, Stavros Niarchos, Karen O, Elizabeth Olsen, Rossy de Palma, Sarah Jessica Parker, Oscar de la Renta, David Rockefeller Jr., Rachel Roy, Lauren Santo Domingo, Rodrigo Santoro, Cindy Sherman, Joan Smalls, Leelee Sobieski, Michael Stipe, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Jonathan Tisch, Caroline Trentini, Liv Tyler, and Bruce Weber.
