Why should the Metropolitan Museum of Art have all the fashion fun? On Wednesday night, the Brooklyn Museum and Dior held a sparkling cocktail party to fête the opening of the new retrospective, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams.

Guests — including Yara Shahidi, Lorde, and Anna Wintour — took a break from fashion week to get a first look at the exhibit (it officially opens Friday), while sipping cocktails and listening to music by DJ Kittens.
