New York’s elite shunned the “Royal Hues” dress code for a more spring friendly look at last night’s Tribeca Ball, as guests like Robert De Niro, Calvin Klein and Mary Kate Olsen gathered to celebrate the warmer weather. The event, in support of the New York Academy of Arts, started with a cocktail party, and while guests sipped and mingled, students opened up their studios and exhibited their work.

Besides the dazzling company and the artwork, the biggest draw of the night was Peter Brant, founder of Brant Publications, who was honored with with an honorary doctorate of fine arts for his decades-long commitment to collecting. There to support Brant and the academy was his wife Stephanie Seymour and his sons Peter and Harry Brant as well as a long list of attendees including: Olivier Sarkozy, Parker Posey, Eileen Guggenheim, Di Mondo, David Kratz, Lauren Remington Platt, Peter Marino, Brooke Shields, Nicole Miller, Sarah Hoover, Alexander Gilkes, Misha Nonoo, Princess Eugenie of York, Samantha Boardman and Aby Rosen.
