Fashion and film are two art forms that go together like Diane Keaton and menswear. Or if you prefer, like Audrey Hepburn and little black dresses. That said, it only makes sense for an iconic brand like Chanel to support up-and-coming filmmakers — and that’s exactly what they do with their partnership with Tribeca Film. Together the two founded Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program back in 2015 to help fund emerging female and non-binary talent in the industry. Nine years later, it’s still gathering an impassioned (and very chic) group of established and emerging women.

This year, the annual event took place at NYC hotspot Locanda Verde, and the glamorous guest list included Christy Turlington, Joey King, Kerry Washington, and so many others. And although the luncheon isn’t exactly a formal affair, anything that’s co-hosted by Chanel is an occasion for dressing up. In this case, many of the celebrity looks included some of the fashion house’s signature elements, like black and white palettes, tweed jackets, and quilted pieces. But even those who opted for more laid-back looks like wide leg jeans and white tees still felt super stylish.

Ahead, learn more about the fashion and film icons in attendance as well as exactly what they wore for the important occasion.

Black and red is one of Chanel’s signature color combos, so it was a fitting choice for We Were the Lucky Ones star, Joey King. She showed up to the luncheon in a coordinating quilted jacket, skirt, and bag paired with classic black pumps.
