The Inspiration Gala New York 2010

On June 3, 2010, amfAR launched the New York Inspiration Gala, the first in a new event series celebrating all aspects of men’s style. Kylie Minogue hosted the gala at the New York Public Library, and presented amfAR Awards of Inspiration to Ricky Martin and Jean-Paul Gaultier. Wilhemina Models sponsored a runway presentation of designer looks inspired by the evening’s "Black Tie/Black Leather" theme, featuring music spun by celebrity DJ Estelle. Simon Doonan led the live auction of one-of-a-kind items, and M•A•C Viva Glam spokesperson Cyndi Lauper closed out the evening with an electrifying performance. The Inspiration Gala was sponsored by Piaget and M•A•C Cosmetics, and raised more than $400,000 for AIDS research.
