Glamorous amfAR 2019 gala in Antibes

The ultra-luxurious Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, in Antibes, was the privileged setting of amfAR's 26th Cinema Against AIDS gala once again last night. The glamorous event always takes place during the Cannes Film Festival, taking advantage of the presence of dozens of celebrities in the French Riviera.

The celebration included a black-tie dinner, plus live music by none other than Tom Jones, Mariah Carey, Dua Lipa and Charli XCX, as well as a fashion show curated by former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris Carine Roitfeld. The most sought-after models walked the runway lead by Kendall Jenner, Stella Maxwell, Winnie Harlow, Elsa Hosk, Sara Sampaio, Josephine Skriver and Shanina Shaik.

The guest list was full of A-listers from fashion, film and music. Kris Jenner sat on a table with Tommy Hilfiger while Eva Longoria and Milla Jovovich spoke on the stage. Rebel Wilson performed a comedy number and Chris Tucker hosted the evening. Hollywood stars filled the room with the likes of Orlando Bloom, Andie McDowell, Patricia Arquette, Christoph Waltz, Chloe Sevigny or Adrien Brody all having bought their hefty priced tickets. Pamela Anderson, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Olivia Culpo and Nina Dobrev were also invited to the glitzy bash.

The Cannes gala has raised over $220 million for amfAR so far, and we're sure that last evening's event increased that number a lot further with auction lots like Takashi Murakami's sculpture sold for $2 million, or an Andy Warhol print that reached over $350,000.
