Surviving members of the iconic American rock band Nirvana reunited at the benefit. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear performed a 5-song set of their hits, with St. Vincent, Beck, and Dave’s 13-year-old daughter Violet Grohl on vocals to fill in for the late Kurt Cobain.

They played Lithium with St. Vincent, In Bloom and Been a Son with Beck, and Heart-Shaped Box with Violet. They closed out the evening with a performance of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World, with Beck on vocals and St. Vincent on guitar.

The charity event brought together a bevy of celebrities from various industries, and, fashion-wise, they did not disappoint. While mostly dressed in glam rock style, some opted for awards show-worthy gowns.

Check out some of the interesting and best looks on the black carpet.

Bella Hadid embraced the night’s rock and roll theme, wearing a three-piece leather suit from Tommy x Zendaya collection. The Catwoman-like outfit included a low-cut waistcoat, a tailored blazer, and a pair of wide-leg pants.

She posed alongside her best friend, fashion designer Jesse Jo Stark, who also opted for an all-black outfit, wearing a pin-striped pantsuit and platform shoes.

Fashion influencer Jasmine Sanders, aka Golden Barbie, was one of the few celebrities who opted for a gown. She made her presence felt in an ombre plisse gown by Maison Met.

It’s a one-shoulder number with a sexy backless design and a risky hip-high slit that allowed her to showcase her legs.
