AmfAR Cannes Gala 2019: The Best Celebrity Looks At The Biggest Benefit Party For AIDS Research

Now on its 26th year, the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) Gala is back and bigger than ever!

This year's fête-for-a-cause, held at the French Riviera's Hôtel du Cap last May 23, raised $15 million in support of AIDS research. Aside from a jaw-dropping fashion show curated by Carine Roitfeld, the amfAR Gala also featured performances by Mariah Carey, Dua Lipa, The Struts, Charli XCX, and more. 

According to amfAR.org, this ultra exclusive, star-studded event has raised over $235 million for the organization's life-saving research programs in over two decades—and has helped keep the fight against AIDS in the global media spotlight.

Ahead, we've rounded up the best celebrity looks we spotted at the amfAR Gala 2019 in Cannes, France. For your dose of red carpet inspiration, scroll ahead!

 

Natasha Poly in Versace

Natasha Poly is exquisite in this asymmetric Versace number. Aside from the intricate Swarovski embellishments, what we love about this form-fitting gown is its sheer hood! What a statement!

Sara Sampaio in Armani

This Armani ensemble is absolutely stunning! The monochromatic feathers complimented the dress' minimalist tube top. We love Sara Sampaio's beauty look, too—a black dress paired with red lips will always remain a classic.

Dua Lipa in Valentino

Finally, Dua Lipa turned heads and elicited wows in this couture Valentino number. We're in love with every detail—the asymmetric top, the feathers, and the bold red shade, the color of HIV awareness.
