If there’s one thing about the amfAR Gala at the Cannes Film Festival, it’s that it is guaranteed to be a glamorous event. Set on the French Riviera, the fundraiser is one of the highlights of the week, with stylish stars from around the world gathering in the very best fashion.
The American Foundation for AIDS Research hosts events around the world to raise funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS prevention and research, but Cannes is always one of the premiere moments for the nonprofit amfAR, which was founded in 1985.
Through the years, we’ve seen some of the most standout Cannes fashion at amfAR. Take Diane Kruger’s look last year in a feathered Chanel dress and Gianvito Rossi sandals.
The event is also a magnate for some of the top models in the industry. After all, Heidi Klum is often an event volunteer, and Kenneth Cole serves as chairman of the amfAR board of trustees. We especially love Karolina Kurkova’s standout shoes on the amfAR red carpet, and just two years ago she wowed in a classic pair of Dior heels.
