Star Studded & Designer Laced: amfAR Gala 2013


This year marked the most glamorous and star studded of events for amfAR, the American Foundation for AIDS Research.  The organization has been combating the existence of HIV/Aids as we’ve come to know it.  A disease once known to BE a death sentence, a stigma, and for some, a life of insecurity and unhappiness doesn’t have to BE anymore.  Thanks for organizations that work diligently for the efforts of making a better life for those affected by the disease, amfAR has BEen able to “lead to way to a cure-focused HIV/Aids Research.  FOR THAT I AM THANKFUL.  So many lives have BEen touched one way or another by the disease and it’s organization such as amfAR that make life and living a bit easier.

{The annual Cinema Against AIDS Gala to benefit amfAR is a perennial highlight on the Cannes calendar, but this year it proved more glamorous than ever as it celebrated its twentieth anniversary.}

{Carine Roitfeld curated this year’s fashion show – entitled The Ultimate Gold Collection – and enlisted 38 of the world’s top models to take to the catwalk. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Karolina Kurkova and Alessandra Ambrosio were merely a handful of the golden goddesses who walked the catwalk in designs from the likes of Chanel, Prada, Alexander McQueen and Burberry.} 

{Cannes’ stars came out in force to support the cause: Roberto Cavalli hosted a table that included Sharon Stone, Kylie Minogue and Olivia Palermo with Ellie Goulding, Shirley Bassey and Duran Duran providing the musical entertainment; while Leonardo DiCaprio watched on as one lucky bidder paid €1.2 million (£1,029,000) to travel into space with the movie star.} –vogue.co.uk
