The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), hosted its annual gala on Saturday, April 29, at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, in honor of Jeff Koons and I was there to catch all the action.
Co-chaired by MOCA Trustees Lilly Tartikoff Karatz and Maurice Marciano, the museum transformed The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA into an immersive setting inspired by Koons’s vibrant, highly polished, and meticulously crafted aesthetic.
The cocktails and champagne were served outdoors where a bar was set up in the middle of the room right after the red carpet entrance, while DJ M.O.S. played smooth songs, but at the after party, he heated up with some Hip-Hop and Pop music everyone was dancing till they closed the party at 1 a.m.
Paris Hilton told me she is working on her second Album and she is booked the entire summer to DJ in Ibiza again. She had that "I am in love" glowing look on her face. She had her new perfume inside her bag and she sprayed all over me, and smelled delicious.
I ran into Ricky Martin, I love Ricky, we meet years ago at the Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, was so nice to catch up with him, he told me how excited and happy he is about his residency show at the Park Theater at the Monte Carlo Hotel in Las Vegas. He attended with his very handsome fiancee Jwan Yosef. He also told me how great his kids are.
Inside the fabulous huge tent, John Legend sang "All of Me", then brought Miguel as a surprise guest to sing together "Overload", while Ryan Seacrest with girlfriend Shayna Taylor, Sean Penn, Sharon Stone, Patricia Arquette, Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith, Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka, dance and sang along.
