Carine Roitfeld’s All-Gold amfAR Fashion Show Raised $25 Million!


Carine Roitfeld sure knows how to party! She wanted to take advantage of Cannes Film Festival’s screening Cleopatra and the coinciding 20th anniversary of amfAR. And what better way than to throw a lavish all-gold-fashion show?

Roitfeld brought in huge names like Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson, Anna Dello Russo, and her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. In total, 38 looks were modeled but here’s the even more impressive part: the whole collection was auctioned off afterwards for $1.56 million. The money goes to AIDS research, if that makes it easier to part with your hard-earned cash.

Other items auctioned at the show include a trip to space (apparently Leonardo DiCaprio won that), a week in Donna Karan’s Caribbean home, a portrait session with Annie Leibovitz, and a ton more (clearly, to raise $25 million, right?).
