Brazil transplanted to New York on Thursday night, as models and designers donned their finest for an evening at the Met’s Temple of Dendur, followed by a late night party at the Top of the Standard Hotel to celebrate the 8th Annual Brazil Foundation Gala. Guests were greeted with a staircase of elegant white candles, and welcomed into the massive space for an evening of toasts, Brazilian appreciation, and donations, including a generous donation of $50,000 from Gisele Bündchen!

Afterwards, it was off to the Top of the Standard hotel where Arlenis Sosa and Linda Vojtova joined the evening’s after party host Fernanda Motta, who took a moment to change from her hot pink Calvin Klein Collection into a stunning sparkly number. While Iman’s decorator, Carlos Mota chatted with Francisco Costa, Fernanda stationed herself in one of the booths along the southern side of the room while friends Jeisa Chiminazzo, Yigal Azrouël, Anne Hathaway, and randomly - Jim Carrey flitted around the room sipping champagne and, of course, caipirinhas.
