amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, raised over $2 million at its annual New York Gala on February 11, 2015 at Cipriani Wall Street. BroadwayWorld was there and brings you photos from the black carpet below!

The Foundation honored legendary activist and revered entertainer, Harry Belafonte; amfAR supporter and actor, Rosario Dawson; and photographer Patrick Demarchelier for their exceptional contributions to the global struggle against HIV/AIDS. Friends and longtime colleagues of each honoree presented the honors with praising words and admiration - Whoopi Goldberg presented to Belafonte; Chris Rock presented to Dawson; and Anna Wintour presented to Demarchelier.

Guests in attendance included Jeremy Piven and Coco Rocha, who opened the night together, Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Chelsea Clinton, Brooke Shields, Marcia Gay Harden, Donna Karan, Karlie Kloss, Toni Garrn, Zackary Quinto, Kelly Rutherford, Kendall Jenner, Vera Wang, amfAR Founding Chairman Dr. Mathilde Krim, and amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, among many others.

The New York Gala, now in its 17th year, kicked off Fashion Week with a black-tie dinner, live auction, honoree presentations, and Dame Shirley Bassey's first ever Fashion Week performance. Dame Shirley had guests on their feet from the moment she took the stage and kept them dancing and singing along as she performed "Goldfinger," "Lady is a Tramp," "Diamonds Are Forever," and an encore performance of "I Am What I Am." Regina Spektor opened the night with a powerful and personal rendition of Harry Belafonte favorite, "Island in the Sun."

A highlight of the night was an appearance by actor and amfAR supporter, Brooke Shields, who announced a $1 million donation from amfAR Trustee Don Capoccia to amfAR's Countdown to a Cure for AIDS initiative. Inspired guests took out their cell phones and began texting pledges, generating an additional $120,000 for the Cure Campaign.
