Jessica Biel joined Ralph Fiennes and Alexa Chung to celebrate Tilda Swinton's 53rd birthday at a party held by the Museum of Modern Art.

The A-listers were out in full force in L.A. last night as the Museum of Modern Art held a tribute to actress Tilda Swinton to celebrate her 53rd birthday in style.

The event, which was sponsored by Chanel, was a great excuse for the great and beautiful to get totally glammed up. However, it was Jessica Biel who completely stole the show.

Jess, who married Justin Timberlake last year, looked stunning as she wore a full length white dress with an intricate bronze chain necklace over her shoulders. The Total Recall actress teamed this look with turquoise eyeliner, straight locks and a boxy clutch bag as she smiled for the cameras.

Swinton, who is perhaps best known for her Oscar winning performance as ruthless lawyer, Karen Crowder in the film Michael Clayton, wore a Chanel trouser suit to the event. The striking actress looked far younger than her 53 years as she went for her trademark no make-up look and quoiffed hair.

The British actress who has featured in a number of critically acclaimed films such as, We Need To Talk About Kevin and The Deep End was honoured by the MoMA as they replayed a montage of her most famous roles.

"I'm a film nerd," Swinton told the crowd, explaining her choice of career. "I continue to do it simply because I continue to believe that film is good for the soul."

Ralph Fiennes, well-know for his portrayal of Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series spoke of the "wisdom and humor" in Swinton's work. Although the actor only met Swinton recently he told her: "I think you shine a sharp and uncompromising beam onto your work."

The MoMA has previously honoured film directors Baz Luhrmann, Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino.
