Photo Coverage: Stars Come Out for amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2014 Gala at Cannes
The 21st annual Cinema Against AIDS at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, May 22, raised a record $35 million for amfAR. The star-studded black-tie event was presented by Worldview Entertainment, Bold Films, and BVLGARI.
amfAR Fundraising Chairman Sharon Stone and longtime amfAR supporter Harvey Weinstein helped to lead the legendary live auction, along with the evening's official auctioneer, Simon de Pury. A highlight was the sale of a gilded woolly mammoth skeleton in a colossal steel and glass vitrine, created by renowned artist Damien Hirst. Titled Gone but not Forgotten, the three-meter tall Mammuthus Primigenius, which became extinct over 10,000 years ago, fetched a record $15 million. This was the highest grossing lot in amfAR's history.
The evening also featured a stunning all-red fashion show curated by Carine Roitfeld, and outstanding performances by Robin Thicke, Lana Del Rey, Aloe Blacc, and Andrea Bocelli.
