Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography, 1911-2011, Wed. Sep. 19 @ 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM daily thru Oct 21 at The Getty Center (1200 Getty Center Drive). Fashion photography, beautiful clothes and unusually pretty faces is just one aspect of the art of Fashion. The Getty Museum’s latest exhibit, “Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography, 19112011,” examines the genre’s evolution from commercial medium to highbrow art, from print to web. The collection’s timeline runs through all the key moments of both fashion and history: the Great Depression, WWII, Hollywood’s Golden Age, the sexual revolution, ready-to-wear, supermodels, grunge and social media. And the more than 160 images on display — as well as costumes, illustrations, magazine covers, videos and ad campaigns — were taken by iconic names like Man Ray, Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Herb Ritts and Peter Lindbergh, in addition to lesser-known photographers, such as Inez & Vinoodh.

WeHo’s 1st Bi Pride Celebration! Sat. Sep. 22 @ 1:30 PM to 7:00 PM at West Hollywood Park Auditorium (647 North San Vicente). They’re the “B” in “LGBTQ,” but people who identify as bisexual don’t usually get much attention in the public eye – at least not compared with all the other letters in the alphabet soup that makes up the community. The Los Angeles chapter of amBi is taking steps to change that with the first city-wide Bi Pride celebration in the country, which it will host together with the City of West Hollywood and HRC LA. The First Annual Bi Pride celebration will begin at 1pm with a rally in front of the West Hollywood Park Auditorium, followed by a Bi Visibility Walk through the heart of West Hollywood, and will culminate with a party back at the Auditorium. Artists will include Torrey Mercer (performing her new single, “Boys/Girls”), and LA Department of Cultural Affairs Artist-in-Residence Kai Hazelwood, who will be offering a chance to experience her project, “Story Time Silent Disco.” The event is free.
E-mail calendar items to email@example.com two weeks prior to your event. Space is limited so priority is given to LGBT-specific events or those with LGBT participants. Recurring events must be re-submitted each time.
