The Art of Elysium's Star-Studded Heaven Gala

With the party season in full swing as Golden Globes weekend is upon us, the stars were out for The Art of Elysium’s 2nd Annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night (January 10).

Held at The Vibiana, the stylish black-tie affair saw Hollywood stars including Nicole Richie, Joel Madden, Kate Bosworth and Gerard Butler all take to the red carpet for the charitable cause.

The event was hosted by Rosetta Millington Getty and Ryan Kavanaugh, with other celebrities in attendance including Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Patricia Arquette, Sophia Bush, Kirsten Dunst, Melissa Joan Hart, Ali Larter, Jared Leto, Eva Mendes and many others.

Jennifer Howell, founder of the organization which seeks to enrich the lives of artists and critically ill children, told press, “The Art of Elysium exists because of the passion that artists hold in their hearts. By serving children in need, the artist is allowed to express this passion in ways that could never be revealed on stage, in a gallery or behind a camera.”

The gala, hosted at The Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles, drew dozens of supporters, as did the gala’s “Hell”-themed after-party at The Edison, also conceptualized by Sheridan.

“The support shown to The Art of Elysium by the entertainment community is truly overwhelming,” said Ryan Kavanaugh, a member of The Art of Elysium’s Board of Directors, and a passionate sponsor and supporter of the organization. “The money raised tonight will go a long way to support the programs Elysium provides, which do so much to help children who need encouragement during their difficult time. It is of the utmost importance that we do everything we can to continue their inspiring work.”

Gala attendants included Sting and wife, Trudie Styler, Gerard Butler, Kirsten Dunst, Aaron Eckhart, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer, Rosanna Arquette and Patricia Arquette, Joy Bryant, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, Rumer Willis, Amy Smart, Milla Jovovich, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Bonnie Sommerville, Dave Annable, Shiva Rose, Charles Roven, Kate Bosworth, Shannen Doherty, Brittany Snow, Marisa Tomei, Sophia Bush, Ali Larter, Elijah Wood, Jared Leto, Rachel Griffiths, Topher Grace, Amber Heard, Paula Wagner and Rick Nicita, Lisa Love, Frederic de Narp and Ben Silverman. Guests were treated to cocktails, dinner, a vintage jewelry display from Cartier, and a stunning fashion show (set to a live opera performance) from Vogue.
