All eyes were on Lady Gaga at the amfAR Inspiration Gala at Milk Studios on Thursday evening (Oct. 29) among Ryan Murphy protégés Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and Angela Bassett.

But really, when are they not?

Deemed by Matt Bomer as “Ryan Murphy’s creative soulmate”, Gaga paid tribute to the American Horror Story creator and performed a set of swanky standards including “Lush Life” and “La Vie en Rose”. The Countess shared photos from the event on her Instagram account with guest appearances from her American Horror Story: Hotel co-stars.

Sharon Stone led an auction of items including a pair of earrings from Harry Winston, a custom Fiat 500 Cabrio, and lunch with Diane Von Furstenberg. Gaga reportedly bid $200,000 on a photo of Elizabeth Taylor flipping the double bird donated by photographer Timothy White, contributing to the $3 million raised for AIDS research over the course of the evening.


Murphy spoke on his experience as a gay man in the public eye, celebrating recent advancements in the LGBT community.

“I feel lucky to be here and to have the right to marry, which I never thought I’d have. You only get one life and one chance to tell your story.”
