The Art of Elysium, the celebrity-powered (and Minx Society’s favorite) charity dedicated to enriching the lives of artists and critically ill children, kicked off Golden Globes weekend with their ninth annual Heaven Gala. The star-studded soiree was hosted by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and her beau Andreas Kronthaler at 3LABS in Culver City on Saturday night. It was a very fashionable evening with a guest list packed with the who’s who of A-list Hollywood.

Guests included such stars and creative visionaries as: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, James Franco, Christina Hendricks, Juliette Lewis, Jamie King, Ed Westwick, Kaley Cuoco, Topher Grace, Nikki Reed, Ian Somerhalder, Jamie Chung, Bella Thorne, Shepard Fairey, Beau Dunn, Shanola Hampton, Camilla Belle, Dree Hemingway, Kelly Osbourne, Arielle Kebbel, and Minka Kelly.

3LABS was transformed into two worlds depicting Heaven and Hell by New York-based artist Andrew Ondrejack’s art installations, which included florescent lights strapped to stacks of black gasoline barrels and neon Heaven signs throughout.

The London-based band Wild Daughter kicked off the Heaven Gala with a musical performance followed by a post-apocalyptic rainforest” dinner. Finola Hughes and Russell Young were honored with the organization’s highest honor, the Spirit of Elysium award. The evening concluded with a musical performance by Shara Worden.
