It was a star-studded evening at the MOCA in LA last night, as Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale, and more attended the opening of the Art in the Streets, the first major retrospective of graffiti art in the US. Gwen and Gavin are longtime supporters of the museum and its director, Jeffrey Deitch, after stepping out for another event there last Fall. Drew Barrymore and her red hair also made a cameo after she debuted the new hue Wednesday night at a book party. Other celebs like Adrian Grenier, pregnant Pink, and Christina Ricci were on hand to toast icons like Shepard Fairey and Thierry Guetta, the star of last year's documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

I can't get over the multitude of style at Saturday night's MOCA 30th Anniversary Gala in LA. There was a lot of Prada and Miu Miu going on, but Kate Beckinsale delivered a healthy dose of red carpet color in her silky teal Andrew Gn gown. Isn't it fit to perfection? Not often do you have Angelina and Brad along with so much eye candy . . . snack attack!
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles spared no expense for its 30th anniversary celebration over the weekend. Lady Gaga performed her new ballad, "Speechless" in an art-meets-entertainment spectacle masterminded by Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli. The production featured a dance by the Bolshoi Ballet, Gaga on a pink piano painted with butterflies by Damien Hirst, and costumes by Miuccia Prada.
Hosted by POP magazine's Dasha Zhukova and Larry Gagosian the event was attended by 1,000 guests from the worlds of fashion (Carine Roitfeld, Cameron Silver, Kate and Laura Mulleavy), art (Takashi Murakami, David Hockney, Jeff Koons), music (Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani), and film (Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, James Franco).
"My wish is that the entertainment industry makes love more often with the art industry," said Vezzoli of the production. "I love that," replied Gaga. "Having my fans watch the [performance] video and be exposed to a level of art and a level of installation is so beautiful and so important."
