Stars of cinema, music and fashion descended on the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc for the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala charity fundraiser at the Cannes Film Festival.

Sharon Stone hosted the charity auction at the gala event which is expected to raise millions of dollars for the charity's work in the fight against AIDS.

 Kylie Minogue exuded effortless glamour in a plunging silk rose coloured gown, British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore a Grecian styled yellow Emilio Pucci dress, and Russian model Irina Shayk  showed plenty of skin in a pale pink Atelier Versace dress with a sequined bodice, and a thigh high split.

Lara Stone's vintage Gianni Versace outfit of a gold and black bra bodice and a full skirt had the star resembling a belly dancer and made her stand out for the wrong reasons.

Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst wore a shimmering blue off the shoulder evening gown. She said she was revelling in her newfound fame. "I love this. This is the life I always wanted. So it feels really great," she said.
