Cindy Crawford, Daryl Hannah, Mandy Moore, Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), legendary producer Robert Evans and James Caan were among the celebs who turned out for opening night of the new Helmut Newton Exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City Thursday night.

Newton, who died in 2004, was a highly influential fashion photographer whose provocative black-and-white photos graced the pages of Vogue and other magazines. Since much of his work involved nudes, this post is NSFW.

Images from Newton's first three books—White Women, Sleepless Nights and Big Nudes— will be on view June 29 through September 8, 2013.

In addition to the more than 100 prints displayed, the exhibit will feature two documentaries about Newton: a film shot and directed by June Newton, Newton's wife of 56 years, and Provocateur, in which models, stylists, fashion editors, photographers and friends will share unique perspectives on the photographer.
