Under the Museum of Contemporary Art’s boudoir-inspired backdrop, guests at the 35th annual Monte Carlo gala on Sept. 10 embraced the burlesque theme and arrived ready to enjoy some adult entertainment.

The cocktail party featured signature concoctions followed by dinner from Giuseppe Fine Catering in the open-air dining room. After dinner, burlesque queen Dita Von Teese mesmerized guests with a scintillating performance.

Following dinner, a new “after” party continued late into the night featuring DJs, dancing in the Boom Boom Room, charity gambling, munchies from Quality Social, and another late-night performance by Dita Von Teese.

Funds from the gala, co-chaired by Valerie Cooper and David Copley, will be used for MCASD’s exhibitions and education programs. mcasd.org
