Vs Mag Better Photography Party - Friday, 3/14/2014 3:54 PM

Beautiful art of beautiful people for beautiful causes with beautiful guests was the theme for last night’s Vs. Magazine and Helena Christensen Celebrate the Opening of BETTER: Fashion Photography Exhibition hosted at Chelsea’s Dillon Gallery. The one night exhibition, featuring many single prints for auction from Vs. Magazine’s BETTER Issue, was held in benefit for Christy Turlington Burns’ “Every Mother Counts”, Adi Roche’s “Chernobyl Children International” and David Lynch’s “David Lynch Foundation” with many of fashion, film and art’s elite turning out to show their support.

The evening’s host and current cover girl, Helena Christensen, arrived looking as flawless as the cover and print she graced; showing her support for not only the causes at hand, but St Patrick’s Day as well, donning an eye catching emerald green top. Ms. Christensen played the tireless host for the evening’s entirety, welcoming and thanking everyone who showed in taking time for every photo, friend and fan. Needless to say the room was ebullient.

Guests mingled about enjoying art from such contributors as Ellen von Unwerth, Christy Turlington Burns, Guy Aroch, Karen Collins, Helena Christensen, Soo Joo Park, Michael Stipe, Julianne Moore, Emilia Clark and David Lynch, many of whom in attendance mixing about with such names as Gina Gershon, Q-Tip, Paul Banks, Georgina Chapman, Valerie Dillon, Jakob F.S., Scott Lipps, Keren Craig, Hung Vanngo, Linda Vojtová, Luma Grothe, Yelena Yemchuk, Camilla Stærk, Ladyfag, Johan Lindeberg, and rising young musician, Garek James.

The art upstairs may have been striking, but something unsettling and ugly was lurking downstairs in the project room: a goblin dinner feast abandoned for television. The work, entitled Armchair Parade, is an immersive installation exploring ones imagination of what creeps around downstairs. Not to give away too much but everyone who descended, returned a different person…

Although the exhibition was one night only, the auction continues on through March 21st at the Dillon Gallery at 555 west 25th st. Those interested in supporting these great causes, and having some conversation worthy art on their walls, can pursue through the collection on tablets positioned about the gallery and place bids on their favorite pieces. So make sure to stop into the Dillon Gallery during your Saturday afternoon gallerying.
