A glamorous black-tie affair, the amfAR gala is one of the most internationally coveted benefit events and is attended by Hollywood’s elite.  

And Shanina Shaik and Lais Ribeiro led the model glamour as they arrived in style at the amfAR Gala at the Hôtel du Cap during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival on Thursday night. 

Newlywed Shanina, 27, shunned a gown in favour of a glittering gold suit, while her model pal Lais flaunted her fabulous physique in a plunging soaring split white gown.

Austrian model Nadine Leopold showcased her statuesque frame to perfection in a semi-sheer khaki coloured dress which showed off her ample assets thanks to its semi-sheer detailing. 

Appearing to go braless, the number – which was sleeveless in design and featured a high neckline – exposed her matching underwear while also cinching in her tiny waist. 

Nadine was dropping in silver jewels and enhanced her blonde bombshell look with a centre parted blowdry and a glamorous coat of make-up.

This year’s amfAR gala which is in its 25th annual event aims to raise awareness and funds towards the fight against HIV/AIDs.   

Rocked by controversy recently, singer Pharrel Williams pulled out of performing at the event. Shortly before actress Sharon Stone stepped aside as co-chair of the charitable organisation.

This came in light of the allegations of sexual assault against disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein – who was the driving force as a sponsor behind the amfAR gala in previous years. 

In 2015, Weinstein was rocked by controversy after designer Kenneth Cole, who at the time served as amfAR chairman, allowed him to funnel $600,000 in donations for his theatre in Boston for the musical Finding Neverland.

To date the amfAR gala has raised more than $210million for life-saving programs in a bid to fight against AIDS. 

Sting and Shaggy are set to entertain the guests at the amfAR gala this year.
