: Guests gathered last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a glamorous black-tie evening at the Apollo Circle benefit, hosted by the Apollo Circle, a Membership group for young friends of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The event featured some of New York's most vibrant young cultural leaders including Zosia Mamet, Amanda Hearst, Claire Distenfeld, and Brendan Fallis, who DJ'd the event. Uncharacteristically, there was a brief moment of drama when two party-crashers were caught using real journalists' names, and suggesting they are a part of the Paper Magazine and Page Six teams. The snafu was resolved when the staff was notified, and the guests enjoyed the rest of their evening at the museum. Funds raised will support the Met's conservation departments.
