The Seventies continue to trend. The Cannes Film Festival has a big night ahead Thursday: the 22nd annual Cinema Against AIDS Gala to benefit amfAR.
“This year is a ’70s disco theme with performances from Sister Sledge, The Village People and Katy Perry,” said amfAR chairman Kenneth Cole. “It’s always a magical evening that nets extraordinary amounts of money to fund much of our research.”
Cole will be pulling out appropriate shoes. “I’ll definitely wear sneakers — probably my gold ones, to best suit the theme,” he said.
While in France, the designer admitted he would like to see a film, of course. But only if time permits. “Hopefully I will squeeze in one or two, but it’s not likely.”
In addition to Kenneth Cole, other chairs for the event include Adrien Brody, Heidi Klum, Carine Roitfeld, Sharon Stone and Harvey Weinstein.
To date, the event has raised more than $170 million for amfAR.
