- Mila Kunis with MOCA director, Jeffrey Deitch.
- Cameron Silver never ceases to impress us with his swagger. Here he is sporting a sweet Chanel blazer.
- Peggy Moffitt in all her blunt bang glory.
- Animal suits: just one example of Rudi Gernreich's envelope-pushing aesthetic.
- A still from Claxton's "Basic Black" (1967). It's considered the first fashion film and demonstrates Gernreich's "Total Look" design concept that fuses together all pieces of clothing in an outfit.
- Another film still. We're surprised Gaga hasn't copy this look yet.
- Super '60s.
- Portraits of Moffitt by the model's late husband, photographer William Claxton.
- This bondage bikini is so Herve Leger.
- We couldn't help but zero-in on this partygoer's killer skull bucket bag. It's by Spanish designer Ines Figaredo and goes for a cool $3,360.
- Gernreich pioneered the retro futuristic look.
- The late Rudi Gernreich with the Snow Queen (Peggy Moffitt), 1968.
On Saturday night amidst Oscarmania, MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to host an intimate dinner honoring MOCA Pacific Design Center's newest exhibition, The Total Look. The show celebrates the creative collaboration between fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, model/muse Peggy Moffitt and photographer William Claxton, who together defined the fashion as art movement in the '60s.
Curated by Cameron Silver of vintage haven Decades, the exhibit features tons of memorable Gernreich looks from Moffitt's personal collection, along with Claxton-lensed films and photos of the iconic model sporting them. As for star-sightings at the event, we spotted Mila Kunis, Liz Goldwyn, China Chow, Trina Turk and a slew of other famous MOCA members. Flip through our party snaps and visit the exhibit now through May 20.
