Kirsten Dunst, Zac Efron, Alec Baldwin and Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld were among the 980 glitterati at the event held Thursday night on the sidelines of the Riviera film festival by the American AIDS research foundation amfAR.
Among star lots at the fundraiser, two guests paid $1.07 million to star in a short film shot by Mr. Lagerfeld, an Andy Warhol lithograph of Marilyn Monroe went for $752,000, and a chopper motorcycle for $200,000.
Last year’s event, the biggest of its kind in Europe, raised nearly $9 million and was attended by Monaco’s Prince Albert II and his then bride-to-be Charlene Wittstock and a galaxy of other celebrities.
AmfAR supports HIV research, prevention, treatment, education and the advocacy of AIDS-related public policy. Since 1993, the event has raised some $80 million.
