As always, the Cannes Film Festival has been a sumptuously glamorous gathering of glitteratti. Hair done, nails done, everything did, I jetted off to join in! We attended the AmfAR Gala, showing our support for the foundation that aims to cure aids by 2020.
Here is my photo diary.

Next, the very talented stylist Patrice Hall came to my house to lend me a few more pretty dresses for the trip.

Arriving at AmfAR. Damien Hirst donated three of his works of art, including this incredible elephant, which sold during the auction for an incredible $11M USD. Sharon Stone with her other celebrity supporters, such as Leonardo di Caprio of AmfAR together raised $38M USD last night for the fight against AIDS.

Time to dance the night away -- Aloe Blacc, Lana del Rey and Robin Thicke performed. It was a fantastic evening for a fantastic cause!
