This year's event, The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, takes place at the famed Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc and will feature 40 models in total. The gold theme was selected in tribute to the late Elizabeth Taylor and because "it represents warmth, love and success," said Roitfeld.
The evening will also feature live performances from Dame Shirley Bassey, Duran Duran, Ellie Goulding and Hot Chelle Rae, while a series of as-yet-unnamed celebrities will participate in the annual fundraising auction. An exhibition of work from photographer Annie Liebowitz will also be on display, and amFAR chairs and ambassadors including Sharon Stone, Jessica Chastain, Heidi Klum, Milla Jovovich and Naomi Campbell will act as honorary hosts for the evening.
Other fashionable names to appear in tonight's catwalk show include Anna Dello Russo, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Lily Donaldson, Jessica Hart, Irina Shayk, Isabeli Fontana, Izabel Goulart, Sui He and Toni Garn - to name but a few - wearing custom-made creations from the likes of Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Givenchy, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
