From Pamela Anderson to Dua Lipa, the great and good of the movie and music world mingled at the Cannes Film Festival’s most glamorous fixture on Thursday night, a fundraiser for AIDS research where stars including Mariah Carey took to the stage.
Reality TV star and model Kendall Jenner, actors Antonio Banderas, Andie MacDowell and Pamela Anderson, and designer Tommy Hilfiger were among guests at the swanky AmfAR dinner on the French Riviera, put on by the U.S.-based Foundation for AIDS Research.
Attendees and AmfAR representatives said this year’s event – which also featured crooner Tom Jones singing some of his hits including “Sex Bomb” – was particularly poignant, following medical breakthroughs in trying to find a cure for AIDS.
