The event was hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and T Magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman to celebrate the work of Chime For Change, a global campaign to help strengthen and unite women around the world.

It's a cause very close to Beyoncé’s heart - she is a co-founder of the charity, along with Giannini and Salma Hayek – and on the night she dug deep and donated a large sum of money towards the good cause.
"At the Gucci Chime for Change event in NYC, Beyoncé just announced a personal donation of $500,000 to the charity," Women's Wear Daily tweeted.
The superstar certainly seemed to have a good time at the event, and was pictured chatting with Blake Lively, while Solange hit the DJ booth to entertain guests, including James Franco and jewellery designer to the stars Lorraine Schwartz.
