UNICEF Next Generation’s annual Masquerade Ball is one of the highlights of the year for the organization: Philanthropists and celebrities alike join together to raise money for a good cause, and subsequently show off the year’s best fashion inspiration. This year's ball, which happened over the weekend, was the most inspiring yet.
In case you missed the memo, the party’s theme was “Post-Modern Surrealism,” which is pretty broad and interpretive, but definitely requires you to dress outside of the box, and maybe even outside your comfort zone. The strongest dressed of the night made the theme their own, turning their looks for the night into art.
Check out our favorite looks from the night, below.
Will Forte brought along his very own Halloween mask.
Gigi Gorgeous and Nats Getty dripping in Gucci (well, Nats mostly, but still).
Some of the looks from the dance floor.
Claire Holt with some Twiggy-esque lashes.
Juana Burga very casually posing with another guest at the event.
Arielle Vandenberg capitalizing on the leopard print trend.
Some intense neon hair, à la Brooke Lyons.
Guests also included flowered peacocks and lions. Is this… surrealism?
Megan Ferguson just brought flower crowns back.
We needed this close-up of Katherine McNamara's bold purple eye and crystal necklace.
Annabel Englund was one of the performers of the night.
A pop of lacy sparkle from Violett Beane.
This makeup inspo will last us until the next Masquerade Ball.
If you wanted to know what the atmosphere was like…
Lydia Hearst's gown could've worked at this year's Met Gala.
Victoria Konefal's mask was in her makeup.
A moment of appreciation for this headpiece.
Tarot readings were available just in case you needed some life guidance during your break from the dance floor.
