VISIONAIRE and MILK MAKEUP with Tumblr celebrated pride by striking a POSE

On June 25, 2019, we celebrated NYC Pride with co-hosts Linda Evangelista, Steven Klein, Violet Chachki, Charlie Le Mindu, UglyWorldWide, and Dara with music by DJs DeSe and Lady Bunny. Guests arrived, had their makeup done, and participated in a photoshoot at Public Arts art Public. 

For some good ol' fashion fun, we asked guests to strike a "POSE" in celebration of glamour and beauty across all creeds, orientations, and identities. Between dancing and sipping Moet & Chandon champagne and special cocktails by Belvedere, partygoers were invited to sit down with professional Milk Makeup artists for bold and colorful beauty moments. When guests were ready for their close-ups, they had the opportunity to star in their very own photoshoot with a professional photographer produced by Milk Makeup. 

Guests were simultaneously the voyeurs, participants, performers, and creators of their own experiences.
