Cannes Or Bust — Janet Jackson, Brooke Shields, Gwen Stefani, Freida Pinto, Michelle Yeoh and Milla Jovovich are some of the celebrities that are slated to attend the annual AIDS event held during the Cannes Film Festival.
The annual event at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, will include a formal dinner and a world-renowned live auction, all to benefit amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. As in previous years, producer Harvey Weinstein will recruit talent from the room to help with the live auction.
For the first time this year, amfAR is partnering with Lâ€™OrÃ©al Paris for the official After Party. Famed DJs Samantha Ronson, Sebastian Perrin, and special guests will provide the music at the Eden-Roc, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The Lâ€™OrÃ©al amfAR After Party will be hosted by Gwen Stefani, Freida Pinto, Patrick Dempsey, Milla Jovovich, and Michelle Yeoh.
