Four of the biggest names in the industry were honored at the second annual Academy Museum Gala held at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Julia Roberts was presented with the inaugural Academy Museum Gala Icon Award by her Ticket to Paradise co-star George Clooney. Tilda Swinton was given the Visionary Award, Sir Steve McQueen received the Vantage Award, and Miky Lee was honored with the Pillar Award.
Presented by Rolex, the event raised $10 million to support the museum’s access, education, and programming initiatives.
The Academy Museum Gala is only in its second year but has already established itself as the Met Gala of the West Coast.
While Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber stole the show with their rare sisterly bond, the red carpet did not disappoint as it was filled with a slew of Hollywood’s finest dressed in glamorous ensembles.
Here are some of the most notable looks at this year’s Academy Museum Gala.
1. Julia Roberts in Thom Browne
One of the night’s stars, Julia Roberts, went the edgy, sophisticated route in a custom monochromatic ensemble by American fashion designer Thom Browne, who’s known for redefining modern tailoring.
