Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Flash! -

Gucci hon­oured con­cep­tual artist Bar­bara Kruger and film­maker Quentin Tarantino at the fourth an­nual Art + Film Gala, hosted by the Los An­ge­les County Mu­seum of Art (LACMA). The pres­ti­gious ben­e­fit’s first fe­male hon­ouree, Kruger is known for her large-scale pho­to­graphs, loudly cap­tioned with pow­er­ful dec­la­ra­tions on con­sumerism, while Tarantino made his name with movies such as Reser­voir Dogs, In­glou­ri­ous Bas­terds, and Django Un­chained.

Kate Beck­in­sale, Camilla Belle, Amy Adams, and Kate Hud­son were just some of the stars who graced the event, dressed in the Floren­tine house’s most glam­orous de­signs. The gala, chaired by both LACMA trustee Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, raised over USD3.85 mil­lion (ap­prox. RM13.2 mil­lion) in sup­port of the mu­seum’s film ini­tia­tives as well as fu­ture ex­hi­bi­tions, ac­qui­si­tions, and pro­gram­ming.

Later in the evening, the 600-strong guests wel­comed English New Ro­man­tic leg­end Boy Ge­orge and the Cul­ture Club af­ter a long hia­tus of more than a decade. Songs per­formed in­cluded “Karma Chameleon,” “Do You Re­ally Want To Hurt Me” and a cover of “Son Of A Preacher Man”, a nod to Tarantino’s 1994 movie Pulp Fic­tion – in­ci­den­tally Frida Gian­nini’s Tarantino favourite. “He’s a ge­nius,” the cre­ative direc­tor of Gucci told The Wall Street Jour­nal. “A to­tal ge­nius.”
