The Foundation for AIDS Research, or amfAR, is a international organization created in 1985 that works hard at fighting HIV/AIDS through scientific research.

 

Each year amfAR hosts a Cinema Against AIDS black tie gala during the Cannes Film Festival in France with the most famous celebrities. The event raised $35 million this year, a record high for the organization.

 

As with any celebrity studded charity event, the amfAR Gala was one of the most fashionable events of the year, filled with the most posh designs in the fashion world. Here we have selected a few of the gala’s best looks.

Nicole Scherzinger wins our vote for Best Dressed at the amfAR Gala. We absolutely adore the singer’s black Michael Costello dress. The fitted frock perfectly frames her figure and is a perfect balance of sexy and classy. Her side swept hair adds to her elegant look as well, making her our top pick.

Runner up for Best Dressed is Bar Refaeli. The Israeli fashion model went bold at the amfAR Gala with this striking red dress. The side slit is just the right length for the elegant event, and the dress looks absolutely stunning on her. We also love her slick backed hair, which she pulls off effortlessly.

Jacquelyn Jablonski looked spectacular in her sheer white Emilio Pucci dress. The American model’s look was both edgy and delicate with bold cuts and detailed fabrics. Straight from Emilio Pucci’s spring 2014 runway, the gown sits perfectly on Jablonski’s model frame.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Grecian style Emilio Pucci dress was one of the most unique at the event. The deep gold hue gives Huntington-Whiteley’s gown a truly sophisticated look, and sets her apart from the crowd.

We love Karlie Kloss’ navy Chanel Couture dress. The look is both modest and chic, a tasteful choice for the amfAR Gala. The model paired this tonal look with diamond jewelry and stylish flats to make for an overall gorgeous look.
