Since amfAR’s late Founding International Chairman Dame Elizabeth Taylor hosted the first Cinema Against AIDS in 1993, the event has become the most coveted ticket in Cannes. Past events have been chaired by amfAR Global Fundraising Chairman Sharon Stone, President Bill Clinton, Demi Moore, Sir Elton John, and Madonna, among many others.
Like the epidemic itself, AIDS research knows no borders. amfAR’s programs have had a global reach since 1986, when the Foundation began awarding international grants. Today, amfAR continues to fund HIV/AIDS researchers worldwide and works to translate their research into effective policy, prevention, and treatment programs around the globe.

Inspired by the glam style of California, MICHAEL KORS once again chose MARIO TESTINO (who has now shot the label’s campaigns for ten years now) to capture KARMEN PEDARU and SIMON NESSMAN in ultra-glossy images. “We wanted the campaign to highlight the crisp, graphic feel of the Spring collection in bold California colors,” says designer Michael Kors. The handsome couple goes from luxury car to private jet in the bold colors and streamlined silhouettes of spring. Bravo, Michael.
