Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin And More Stars Stun At amfAR New York Fashion Week Gala — SEE PHOTOS HERE!
As Gossip Cop has reported, amfAR, which stands for American Foundation for AIDS Research, hosts a formal affair on the eve of New York Fashion Week each year. The black-tie event serves as a fundraiser, where tables cost as much as $75,000. Dating back to 1998, more than $15 million has been raised over the years, and the fancy evening also “honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to raise awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic.” There’s typically a mix of live performances, honoree tributes, and a luxurious auction in the midst of a gourmet dinner, this time held at Cipriani in Manhattan.
The 2015 honorees are Rosario Dawson, Harry Belafonte and celebrity photographer Patrick Demarchelier. A number of big stars are among the event chairs, including Jamie Foxx, John Legend, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Cohen, Jeremy Piven, Julianna Marguiles, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Kenneth Cole, Nina Garcia, Toni Garrn, Donna Karan, and Chelsea Clinton. Shirley Bassey was selected as the night’s special performer.
Jenner and Baldwin, two of the youngest attendees, both showed up in beautiful reddish gowns, along with Brooke Shields, Camila Alves, Heidi Klum, Iman, a pregnant Coco Rocha, Naomi Campbell, Michelle Rodriguez, Marcia Gray Harden, Paris Hilton, and many more. See the pictures below!
