Robyn Conquers MoMA's Party in the Garden
Helen Mirren attended the Museum of Modern Art's annual Party in the Garden on Wednesday night, as did blockbuster artists including Chuck Close and Jeff Koons. But it was Robyn, the Swedish singer known for her early aughts dance-pop hits like "Do You Know What It Takes" and "With Every Heartbeat," that stole the show. After a benefit dinner that honored collection artists Huma Bhabha, Mark Bradford, and Brice Marden, along with philanthropists Amanda and Glenn Fuhrman and Sally and Wynn Kramarsky, guests spilled out into the garden to hear her perform. The Grammy-nominated singer, who wore the rising British designer Michael Halpern, is having a resurgence this summer, with four shows including New York's Governor's Ball this weekend. For the shows, she's asked 10 different producers and DJs to revisit and remix material from her extensive catalog. Call it a comeback.
