The LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles delivers a celebrity-filled red carpet every year, but this weekend’s soiree felt more starrier than ever. In the absence of major film premieres due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike,

Hollywood A-listers turned out in droves—serving up a glamorous assortment of evening gowns and suits in the process. And given the evening was presented by Gucci, many attendees chose striking looks from the Italian label.

Some of the gala’s fashion highlights? There were head-turning couple moments, like when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck arrived on the step and repeat: Lopez wore Gucci’s champagne-colored gown with a silk bodice and lace skirt, while Affleck chose a classic black tuxedo. Other stars chose to shine solo.

Kim Kardashian caused a stir in a hot pink strapless gown, complete with black opera gloves. Billie Eilish wore Gucci’s monogrammed two-piece set, complete with a label’s brand-new vegan Horsebit bag. Lupita Nyong’o wore Gucci’s sheer burgundy-tulle gown, with striking jewels from De Beers. Blackpink’s Rosé opted for Saint Laurent’s one-shouldered floral frock.

The cast of Killers of the Flower Moon, meanwhile, got a moment in the spotlight after their film’s premiere was tamped down by the strike: Lily Gladstone wore Gucci’s red caped gown with sheer accents, complete with dentalium shell earrings by the Indigenous designer Jamie Okuma; and Cara Jade Myers looked radiant in a whimsical white dress from Rodarte.
