Last night, the Young Collector’s Council of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum hosted a pre-party for the 2016 Guggenheim International Gala, which was made possible by Dior. The fashionable crowd lined the museum's spiral structure as past V cover star BANKS took the circular stage in a custom black Dior gown with an accompanying headpiece (both designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, who was also in attendance) for a sultry performance of songs off her recently released album, The Altar. 

Notable guests in attendance included Marion Cotillard, Future, Makenzie Leigh, Troye Sivan, Laura Harrier, Lexi Boling, Molly Bair, Cipriana and TK Quann, Lauren Mayberry, Shameik Moore, Liana Liberato, and more. Proceeds from the event went to supporting the museum. View the slideshow below for images from last night's event.
