Last night at the New Museum gala...

Last night was the New Museum’s Spring Gala, an evening “inspired by the sounds and tastes of Brazil,” and all the guests were encouraged to avoid wearing black.

Marilyn Minter wore a fuschia Marni dress. (She told me she always wears Marni because it’s across the street from her SoHo studio.)

Mary Heilmann, one of the night’s two honorees (here, holding her award), went with a graphic black and white print dress.
