Cannes Elite Take Time to Show Concern, Look Nice

Taking a break from the nonstop screenings at the Cannes Film Festival, celebrities flocked to Le Moulin de Mougins (translation: the Moulin of Mougins) today to attend the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS fundraiser.

The gala event, which was sponsored by Bold Films, jewelry company Chopard, the Weinstein Company, Audi, Canal + and Hewlett Packard, featured a formal dinner, auction and abbreviated screening of I Am Because We Are, a documentary about Malawian AIDS orphans produced and narrated by Madonna, who was one of the evening’s most highly anticipated guests.

Madge was joined by a slew of celebrities who gussied up for a good cause, including Petra Nemcova, Dita Von Teese, Christian Slater, Juliette Lewis, Natalie Portman and Donatella Versace—for whom, sadly, there is still no cure in sight.

Also on hand, fervent AIDS activist Sharon Stone, who looked sassy but elegant in a leopard-print dress. Okay, not as elegant as she did earlier in the day, but she does what she can. Click in to see stars doing the Cannes-Cannes…
