There seemed to be two Bellas of the ball on Saturday night, as supermodel Bella Hadid and her best friend, fashion designer Jesse Jo Stark, opted to wear matching rock ‘n roll, leather ensembles to The Art Of Elysium’s 2020 Heaven Gala.

The twinning beauties weren’t the only members of the crowd to go rock chic at the annual black tie artistic experience which, this year, was aptly renamed “Heaven Is Rock And Roll.” As its title conveys, but the performances were plentiful and executed by rockers, including Marilyn Manson, Cheap Trick, L7 as well as Dave Grohl and Friends, who included Violet Grohl, Beck, St. Vincent, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear.

There was also a giant poster rock exhibit by artist Kii Arens, who was one of three awarded “visionaries” (the others included producers Linda Perry and Kerry Brown, the co-CEOs of We Are Hear).

There were also giant neon angel wings on site—an installation titled “Red Angel Wings” created by artist Beau Dunn, last year’s spirit award honoree—at the Hollywood Palladium so the attendees could make their own art, or at least get Instagram-friendly. Legendary photographer Mick Rock got in on the action here, snapping photos of rocker Billy Idol.

Needless to say, the cool crowd not only had fun at the 13th annual celebration (and noshed on a delicious dinner fromJames Beard Award-nominated Eric Greenspan), but still did their part to celebrate those who give back: the very ethos of The Art of Elysium, which was founded in 1997 to support artists working for the benefit of others. For over twenty years, the non-profit has paired volunteer artists with communities in Los Angeles to support individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges like illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis.
