The best party in town just got even better. LACMA announced that the honorees for their Art+Film Gala (November 1st) will be filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and artist Barbara Kruger. Tarantino and Kruger up the ante on the 4th annual super-bash thrown by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio that draws some of the biggest names in town. Gucci will again be the big-time sponsor. Kruger’s career has spanned 40 years and Tarantino will hopefully lure stars to the bash like Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt, Kerry Washington (she’s attended previously), Christoph Waltz, Uma Thurman (she’s walked past Urban Lights before), John Travolta, and Bruce Willis. No word on the menu yet, but we won’t rule out a Royale with cheese.
