The Highlights

Guests lounged on the piazza of the High Museum, sipped cocktail, enjoyed haute bites, previewed the MoMA’s Picasso to Warhol exhibit of 14 modern masters from Picasso to Matisse, and danced until midnight to the grooves and later disco tunes of DJ Maseo of De La Soul. Several gorgeous hosts and guests (Monica Dioda, Emily Amy, Liz Lapidus, Kate Thacker, etc) were dressed for the night in Ferragamo’s va-va-voom collection of black-and-white gowns. Hosts wore Warhol buttons that ranged from images of his Marilyn Monroe to his most famous quotes. A sleekly modern lounge décor and graphic, glowing red bar were provided by Tony Brewer and Company, while an atmospheric light show was projected on the façade of the museum building.
