Celebrities (and Mickey Mouse) Show Up In Support of the Whitney Art Party

Leave it to the Whitney Museum to throw a party that brings together Girls star Adam Driver, model Erin Wasson, Olivia Wilde, Lake Bell and…a black Mickey Mouse sculpture with a huge erect penis in one room — it was up for auction and yes, it sold.

The party in question is the museum's annual Art Party which took place last night at Skylight At Moynihan Station where 1,000-plus guests sipped on Chandon, noshed on Pinch catered hors d'oeuvres (and bar snacks that included a tub of popcorn and kale chips because…why not?), while bidding/starring/discussing/pondering dozens of pieces of art that were up for auction.

Sponsored by Max Mara to support the Whitney’s Independent Study Program, there were plenty of neutral-toned separates and dresses in the crowd, but the ruling dress code of the night seemed to be "dress to get noticed" — meaning, that as soon as you got tired of disussing the art at what many consider to be one of the most important art events of the year, you could partake in some good old fashion people watching.
