The American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) has announced Kylie Minogue as host of its Inspiration Ball in June.

The Inspiration Gala, a new amfAR event series produced by Josh Wood Productions, is a celebration of men’s style that will benefit the Foundation’s innovative AIDS research programs.

The event will take place at the New York Public Library in Bryant Park on June 3, and will honor Jean Paul Gaultier. Chairs include Kenneth Cole and Alan Cumming.

Beginning in 2010 in New York, Paris, and Los Angeles, the Inspiration Gala series will grow to include events in multiple cities and will feature a different design “Inspiration” each year.

The design inspiration for 2010 is “Black Tie//Black Leather.” Each of the major designers who are participating will donate a piece inspired by the “Black Tie//Black Leather” theme to be presented in a runway show. The designers’ items will then be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting amfAR. The evening will also include a formal dinner with a special award presentation. Guests are encouraged to dress inspired by the theme.
