The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show at the amfAR charity gala in Cannes

Carine Roitfeld hosts The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show as part of the amfAR gala in Cannes, a one-off catwalk show of glitzy couture and gold jewels.


As part of the 20th Cinema Against Aids amfAR charity gala in Cannes, Carine Roitfeld last night hosted 'The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show' at the celebrated Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. The first time a catwalk show has been held alongside the charity fundraiser, the event was streamed live last night at 8:00GMT on, offering viewers a glimpse of all the star-studded action from the red carpet in real time, plus a front-row seat for the fashion show.

The theme was gold as a precious and inspiring metal. Sponsored by LoveGold, Carine Roitfeld - ex editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and Parisian style queen - curated the show, which featured 38 of the best-known models in fashion wearing couture and jewels from legendary and emerging houses. Among the jewellery brands worn alongside the original couture creations were Bulgari, Chopard, Wright & Teague, Coomi, Hattie Rickards, Pamela Love, Eddie Borgo, Hoorsenbuhs, Kimberly McDonald and Amrapali.

The models looked relaxed and happy as they strutted down the catwalk in creations by world-famous couture houses including Armani, Burberry, Chanel, Prada and Gucci, aware that they were making a little bit of history. Anna dello Russo danced past the clapping crowds in a whacky Pucci ensemble, accessorised with lashings of Bulgari jewels, while Karlie Kloss was transformed into an Indian princess in a sheer, sari-style dress by Indian designer Tarun Tahiliani and jewellery - including a pretty headpiece - by Amrapali. Liberty Ross shook her hips as she sauntered down the catwalk in a tasseled Altuzarra frock and two gold Bulgari 'Serpenti' bracelets snaked round her wrists, and Dalianah Arekion shimmered in floor-length gold Ralph Lauren gown paired with a bracelet by Brit designer Hattie Rickards.

Among the famous faces who turned up to support amfAR on this uniquely stylish night of gold-themed fashion and jewellery were Kylie Minogue, Sharon Stone, Jessica Chastain, Heidi Klum, Dita von Teese, Audrey Tatou and Nicole Kidman.
