What u must know: Marina Abramović's performance @TheGoldenGlobes Pre-Party

Past Saturday at the charity's Art of Elysium Heaven Gala, performance artist Marina Abramović curated a party that included beds, a lots of stars and silk robes (everyone was given a gray robe to wear over their clothes).  Abramovic collaborated with Costume National to create a new kind of party with a "silent cocktail hour" (drinks were ordered by pointing to a menu).  She came up with the idea to have guests "dressed in pajamas or in beds, so that everyone is equal."  Entertainment included a 3-D film and a musical set by Moby.  The event was projected to raise $1 million for the nonprofit group that brings art to sick children.
