If you were looking to go "somewhere over the rainbow" this weekend in New York City, then you probably found yourself at Supercinema at the McKittrick Hotel. On Saturday night, the West Chelsea spot best known for "Sleep No More" hosted The Emerald City Ball — a dance party inspired The Wizard of Oz — and revelers came out in sexy, fashion-y interpretations of the iconic film's many characters.

The event was billed as part of the city's Pride Weekend, and portions of ticket proceeds benefited the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund and Everytown for Gun Safety. Check out the best looks of the evening from both performers and partygoers by scrolling through the gallery above.
