As celebrities gear up for next week’s Met Gala, dozens pre-gamed with TIME magazine’s 100 Gala.

On Tuesday night, the 100 Most Influential People attended the soiree in New York City and enjoyed not only a performance by most influential John Legend, but a sweet toast by actress Viola Davis. “Everybody in this room, I’m sure at some point, has gone through something in their lives, and you survived it,” Davis said.

She added, “But not only did you survive it, you took that trauma, and that hurt, that revelation, or whatever it was, and you used it to connect, to give, to influence, to help, and that is the beauty and the purpose of what we are here on this Earth to do.”

Here, here.

Now, on to the most important part … what did folks wear? It’s a known fact when you get invited to TIME’s 100 Gala, you better show up with your best garments in tow.

Check out photos from the night’s event.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
