It was time to reflect back to the 70s as the Costume Council of LACMA, with the support of Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Elizabeth and David Netto, Katherine Ross, Cameron Silver, Angelique Soave, and Alexandra Von Furstenberg, presented the west coast premiere of ULTRASUEDE: IN SEARCH OF HALSTON.
Even Billy Joel shared his experience with the designer, who was mentioned in his hit song Big Shot from his 1978 album, 52nd Street.
Among the others interviewed, Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field shared her story on how she dressed Sarah Jessica Parker in Halston in an episode where Carrie was dating a politician. Field said, "It was a play on Jackie O."
After the film screening, guests attended a reception in the Los Angeles Times Center Court at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Other attendees included designers James Galanos and Kevan Hall, author Judith Krantz, and Alexandra von Furstenberg, whose mother Diane appeared in the film.
