Heidi Klum, Bar Rafaeli and Eva Herzigova were among the stars at amfAR Milano on Friday, the American Foundation for AIDS Research's third annual benefit held in conjunction with Milan Fashion Week.

With special performances by Rufus Wainwright and Raphael Saadiq, and an appearance by amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, the event took place at La Permanente, and featured cocktails and dinner, as well as amfAR’s famed live auction of unique luxury items, conducted by guest auctioneer Simon de Pury.

Through the years, the Italian fashion community has been exemplary in its support of amfAR, with fashion houses and designers underwriting and leading many of the Foundation’s most successful fundraising efforts. Since amfAR’s first international benefit, held in 1993 during the Cannes Film Festival and hosted by amfAR Founding International Chairman Dame Elizabeth Taylor, the Foundation’s international galas in Cannes, Venice, Rome, and Dubai have become some of the most high-profile and eagerly anticipated charity events in the world and have helped raise more than $70 million for critical AIDS research programs.
