The Art World Honors Lady Gaga


On Monday evening Lady Gaga, who was wearing a dress straight from Marc Jacobs’s Spring 2016 runway, accepted the Young Artist Award at the 2015 National Arts Awards. Hosted by The Americans for The Arts at Cipriani in New York City, the annual event drew a crowd of artists and philanthropists including Chuck Close, Dan Colen, Tony Bennett and Susan Rockefeller. Gaga, who received her award from MoMA’s Klaus Biesenbach, was in good company as well with her fellow honorees. Paul Simon presented Herbie Hanckock with the Outstanding Contributions to the Arts Award, former NAA Chair Maria Bell accepted the Legacy Award from artist Jeff Koons, and finally, the Carolyn Clark Powers Lifetime Achievement Award went to actress Sophia Loren, who’s still just as glamorous as any young artist.
