The strictly A-List formal ball was held during the Cannes Film Festival at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc. Janet Jackson, Goldie Hawn, Gwen Stefani and Uma Thurman were among the celebs in attendance.
Presented by Bold Films, the Weinstein Company and Chopard, the event raised an astounding $10 million for the fights against AIDS.
A signed, dated Andy Warhol lithograph of the late Elizabeth Taylor, co-founder of amfAR, went for $580,000.
“It was a fantastic night with record-breaking numbers,” said event co-chair Harvey Weinstein.
“Elizabeth Taylor would have been very proud. Everyone was so incredibly generous – the actors, models, public figures and of course the people who bid. It was an evening I’ll never forget.”
