Last night at the W Hotel Union Square, the American Foundation For Aids Research--better known as amfAR--held a gala in support of Aids Research leading up to the World AIDS Day on December 1st.
Fashion's A list showed up in droves, not only to enjoy festivities that W Hotel charitably contributed to, but to participate in presenting and judging the performance events of the evening. Lead by the Hostess with the Mostess, Kelly Osbourne, performers gyrated and moved in ways that would make Olympic Atheletes drool.
There were 5 seperate contests on the runway, from which the judge panel consisting of Fergie, Mickey Boardman, and Edward Enninful to name a few voted for their favorites on a 10 point scale system.
When winners were selected, presenters from fashion's A-list gave a W-plaque to the winner. Jason Wu, Zac Posen, and even Bryan Boy presented winners with their awards.
After the contest was over, visitors headed to W's basement bar to finish the night with an amazing after party. However, the most important message of the evening was not so much about having fun for the sake of fun, but having fun for the sake of AIDS research, fueled by amfAR.
