Sharon Stone Chairs amFAR Gala After Fashion Show Fainting
Bringing fashion and fundraising together for a great cause, the stars gathered together on Saturday evening (September 22) for the fourth annual amFAR’s Milan Fashion Gala in Milan, Italy.
The event, which was presented by Moët Hennessy and held at the Westin Palace, had celebs, models, singers and more slipping into their best ensembles to help raise funds and awareness for AIDS research.
Donning the title of Chair of the evening was Oscar-nominated actress Sharon Stone, who welcomed gorgeous faces in the crowd including Jessica Stam, Bianca Balti, Hofit Golan and Solange Knowles for cocktails, dinner, a live auction and performances by fashion industry favorites Theophilus London and Anna Calvi.
Almost unable to perform her duties, Miss Stone's Chair efforts followed a trip to the hospital after she suffered a migraine at the Fendi runway show.
Explaining the medical scare, a rep told press, “Sharon experienced migraine related symptoms, and we all felt it best that she got checked out before the amfAR event.”
“She was examined and given a clean bill of health,” the spokesperson added. “And as she said, wild horses couldn’t keep her away.”
