On Monday evening, just as the Ralph Lauren show was getting underway uptown, the Morgan Library and Museum was filling up with a who’s who of creatives and those who love them as Cultured Magazine celebrated its “Cult100” issue, with support from Valentino.

Guests including Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Bowen Yang, Dianna Agron, Julio Torres, Paul W. Downs, Amy Sedaris, Tyler Mitchell, Victoria Pedretti, Moses Sumney, Delaney Rowe, Myha’la and more joined Cultured editor in chief Sarah Harrelson for the event, which was the first time most had been to a party of any kind inside the Midtown museum. 

“I knew that I wanted to have it here or I didn’t want to have it at all,” Harrelson said of the venue, adding that it’s hard to find someplace to excite partygoers these days. Sipping Champagne inside J.P. Morgan’s library — on a Monday night at that — seemed to do the trick, as the space was packed.

Yang said that this coming weekend’s SNL host Dua Lipa, who is doing double duty as musical guest and host, is shaping up to be a hit. 

“I feel like she’s going to be great. She just did my podcast, we talked it through, I gave her pointers. She already has that pop star mentality of ‘tell me what mark to hit and I’ll do it’  and that’s half the gig,” Yang said inside the library.

Perks of working with the musician include getting an early listen to her upcoming new album.

“It’s so good all the way through. It’s my favorite, I think,” he teased. “There’s a song called ‘Falling Forever’ that I think people are going to really lose their minds over.”

Around 9 p.m., poet Ocean Yuong gave a reading and, to close out the night, Kelsey Lu dazzled the crowd with a performance.
