This is it! There are only a matter of hours left until Carine Roitfeld stages her gold-themed tribute to Elizabeth Taylor at the 20th annual Cinema Against AIDS amfAR gala at the Cannes Film Festival, and needless to say, we’re getting pretty excited! So excited in fact, that we couldn’t wait until the actual show to see which gorgeous catwalkers we’d see strutting their stuff on the golden runway.
Thanks to a little investigative fashion work, we’ve managed to track down the FULL model lineup from the site of runway show at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France, where we’re told the models have taken over the banquet room to prep in hair and makeup. As you can see from the roster, Carine wasn’t kidding about this being the ultimate fashion show! Joan Smalls (the show’s opener), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Irina Shayk, Izabel Goulart, Alessandra Ambrosio, Liberty Ross, Lily Donaldson, Karlie Kloss, Jessica Hart and Kati Nescher are all set to take the stage in some of the shiniest looks known to man, proving to be even bigger than last year’s year’s fashion spectacle!
Speaking of those shiny looks, much like last year’s inaugural ‘all black everything’ fashion extravaganza, this year’ Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show is expected to see a number of custom-made gold creations by the likes of Burberry, Roberto Cavalli, Alexander McQueen and Dior among others, which Roitfeld says were created in tribute to the late actress and amfAR co-founder. Tonight’s runway looks will later be auctioned off as part of the gala’s silent auction, with proceeds going directly to AIDS research. Last year, the former Paris Vogue editor helped to raise a record-breaking sum of nearly $11 million thanks to her first amfAR fashion show. Since 1993 Cinema Against AIDS events around the world have raised over $70 million for lifesaving AIDS research. This year’s show is set to attract some of the biggest celebrity names from around the world as Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Milla Jovovich, Sharon Stone and Jessica Chastain serve as honorary hosts for the evening.
