Natalie Portman Hosts Benjamin Millepied's LA Dance Project Gala
See Rashida Jones, Reese Witherspoon, Aaron Sorkin and more at the event in Los Angeles
What: A Dior-clad Natalie Portman looked perfectly beachy in a red gown as she co-chaired the first gala for her husband Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Project, an artist collective which supports emerging and established dance artists.
When: Thursday, June 20th
Where: The gala took place at the home of Sutton Stracke in Los Angeles, who co-chaired the benefit alongside Portman and Catharine Soros. An accompanying online auction was hosted by Paddle8.
Who: Reese Witherspoon, Rashida Jones, Barbara Kruger, Aaron Sorkin, Jeffrey Deitch, and Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, amongst others, joined the Black Swan couple for cocktails, dinner, an auction, and a performance by the LA Dance Project’s members.
Why: At the auction, we learned that a private boxing lesson with Millepied goes for $3,000. (Elizebeth An, who won, is a lucky woman!)
