THE PARTY An elegant affair honoring photographer Annie Leibovitz and benefiting the museum’s educational programs THE PLAYERS Jeffrey Deitch, Catherine Opie, Lori Loughlin, Kimberly Brooks, Rosette Delug, Liberty Ross, Benedikt and Lauren Taschen, Robin Tunney, Abigail Spencer, Betye Saar, Kelly Wearstler THE HIGHLIGHTS Following the Saks presentation of the fall 2012 Akris collection, Maria Shriver commanded the audience’s attention, turning their focus to a slide show put together by Leibovitz that included some of the photographer’s most famous works, including iconic shots of Demi Moore, nude and pregnant, and Yoko Ono and John Lennon curled up naked together. “Don’t just look at them,” Shriver urged. “Experience them with every pore of your body.” Shriver called her longtime friend a “stand-up kinda gal.” “I totally respect the fierceness with which she allows her own light to shine,” she said. Leibovitz, brought to tears, responded with a deeply personal anecdote and a presentation of mind-blowing photos of a recent trip, reminding the audience why she was so deserving of this significant recognition.
