Last night, Will Cotton, Brooke Shields, Naomi Watts, Alan Cumming, Donna Karan and more sipped on champagne, snacked on cotton candy, and took in aerial acrobatics amidst the work of some 100 New York Academy of Art students. The occasion? The annual Tribeca Ball to benefit the university, which was honoring Cotton and drawing attention to the work of its current class of artists.

“We’re going upstairs to explore!” exclaimed Canadian artist Chloe Wise just as Martha Stewart arrived at the affair. 

Upstairs, Academy artists sketched live birds while guests tried their hands at screen-printing. Cocktails were served as artists opened up their studios to attendees. 

A bit later uptown, the tone was equally festive as Jeffrey Kalinsky brought together everyone from Joseph Altuzarra to Anna Wintour to raise money for LGBT rights at his 14th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares fundraiser.

“It’s just a labor of love,” he explained, as a Salvatore Ferragamo-clad Sean O’Pry (“My first time wearing all white,” said the model) and Brandon Maxwell made their way to the bar at The Intrepid. 

“We’re trying to raise a lot of money for charity,” Kalinsky continued. “I’d like to raise $800,000. And I think we opened the doors around $700,000.”

The event, which gave guests the chance to bid on everything from an invite to Elton John’s Oscar-viewing party to a trip to Paris during men’s week, included plenty of drinks and a slew of well-known male model faces walking Jeffrey’s runway. 

“Next is Fashion Cares in Atlanta in August! The 25th anniversary,” grinned the retailer and philanthropist.

Funds will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Hetrick-Martin Institute, and Lambda Legal.
