See Brittany Snow's Exclusive Photo Diary From Dior's Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party

Have a night at the museum with the actress

Every year for one night only, Dior takes over New York City's Guggenheim museum for the Guggenheim International Gala, made possible by the brand. This year's black-tie fete brought out the likes of Charlize Theron, Zoey Deutch, Uma Thurman, and Maya Hawke on a chilly Thursday night, but the party, in fact, had officially kicked off a full 24-hours earlier with the Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party. There, a who's who of Young Hollywood, music, and art, including Nina Dobrev, Maggie Rogers, and Sophia Lillis, took over the museum after hours for a champagne-filled evening that included a live performance from Christine and the Queens.

Among those taking in the festivities was actress Brittany Snow, who wore a sheer polka-dot Dior dress, cinched with a signature "CD" belt. To top off the look, Snow enlisted the Dior Beauty team to create a sweet, fresh-faced look, complete with a ribbon-adorned hair-do. Here, Snow, who currently stars on Fox's Almost Family alongside Emily Osment and Megalyn Echikunwoke, shares her exclusive photo diary from the night with NYLON, capturing everything from the getting ready process to the late-night after-party with fiancé Tyler Stanaland.

"Getting ready begins. It's 7:00. I'm already tired. If it wasn't for Dior & Guggenheim... I'd be watching Chef's Table... again."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow
"They somehow trusted me to do my own makeup. Sometimes I think I'm good at it. Until I try to do a winged liner. Here's hoping."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"They sent help. A lot of help. Grateful for the amount of makeup. Won't wear all at once."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"Peter Butler, my hair stylist, and I spoke about Catherine Deneuve and how she is our favorite. She was our inspiration tonight. She loved ribbons."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"Asking my fiancé if the tag of my bra was showing and it turned into a picture. Casual."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"I look like a '60s mob boss who had their 3 fingers cut off in a job gone wrong. The picture is cool, so I'm going with it."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"I'm super brave. Sometimes I fix my eye makeup in the car."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
"For the first time in my life ever, I was 'too early for the party.' We got a drink in the meantime and ordered a basket of free bread. Classy."Photo courtesy of Brittany Snow.
