  • Michelle Williams lent her support to the Whitney Museum at their annual fall gala.

    Michelle Williams lent her support to the Whitney Museum at their annual fall gala.

    Riley Keough, granddaughter of the late King of Rock Elvis Presley, and actress Michelle Williams were among celebrities who polished their artsy cred at the Whitney Museum of American Art Gala & Studio Party in New York City last night (Oct. 23).

    Riley, who had a rough go in the tabloids recently, was the picture of hipster chic in her Louis Vuitton black mini-dress, with a white jacket from the designer’s spring 2013 collection.

    Williams also set the tone for the night also in a black Louis Vuitton dress with shoulder straps that was figure-hugging with a mid-calf length. She accessorized with a black LV clutch, and peep-toe pumps. She added a dash of color with luscious red lipstick.

    The glamours duo was also joined by “Glee’s” Dianna Agron, who chose a black ankle-length dress.
