I attended the opening of the Beauty Culture photography exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography. It was a red carpet, celebrity-filled party at the gorgeous space in Century City. I witnessed an amazing moment where Gisele Bundchen was taking a photograph in front of her photo in the exhibition. I also got to chat with Katie Holmes and she is stunning in person! Dita Von Teese wowed the crowd with a beautiful performance. Her skin is truly porcelain in person.
The exhibition explored how beauty is defined and diplayed in modern society. The subject matter and images definitely spurred conversation. Photographers such as Herb Ritts and Man Ray were represented. The exhibition also displayed portraits and editorial images of Alek Wek, Angelina Jolie, Beverly Johnson, Bo Derek, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Helena Christensen, Hilary Swank, Iman, Kate Moss, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Megan Fox, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sophia Loren, Stephanie Seymour and more. It is a must-see!
Beauty Culture is open to the public and runs through November 27, 2011.
