Though the skies darkened, guests stayed bright.

In conjunction with the New Museum of Contemporary Art's latest exhibition, "Ghosts in the Machine," the organization and Whitewall Magazine threw a White Party on the institution's rooftop. Though drained of all other hues, guests brought plenty of spice and outlandish outfits to the summery fete, which featured tunes from DJ Jack Greer and plenty of pale beverages. A glorious sunset provided all the color this shindig needed. As the lights dimmed, partyers stayed bright and shiny in their gear.
