The 2023 LACMA Art + Film Gala took place on Saturday, Nov. 4, and the guest list was packed with A-listers and Oscar winners, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Billie Eilish and more, marking the starriest red carpet Hollywood has seen in some time, given the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
DiCaprio, LACMA trustee Eva Chow, Gucci Creative Director Sabato De Samo and Gucci President and CEO Jean-François Palus co-chaired the event which was presented by Gucci. The star-studded guest list included Ben Affleck, Kim Kardashian, Keanu Reeves, Andrew Garfield, Jessica Chastain, Lee Jung-Jae, Ava DuVernay, Jodie Comer, Lupita Nyong’o, Ke Huy Quan, Celine Song, Laura Harrier, Colman Domingo, Quinta Brunson, Heidi Klum and Paris Hilton, among others. Lopez also introduced the night’s musical guest – Lenny Kravitz, who rocked the venue with a thrilling set.

At the event, Gucci introduced its Ancora Notte collection, the first eveningwear collection designed by Sabato De Sarno. Celebrities such as ASAP Rocky, Elliot Page, Garfield and Pedro Pascal revealed De Sarno’s first steps into formal menswear.
The gala took place at the LACMA exhibition “Painting in the River of Angels: Judy Baca and the Great Wall.” During the live experience, museum-goers can observe Baca painting murals that will be added to the original “Great Wall” mural at the L.A. River, which Baca and other community members painted from 1974 to 1984.
Proceeds from the annual Art+Film Gala go toward underwriting LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission including exhibitions, acquisitions and educational programming that explore the intersection of art and film.
