This will be the second year  that Carine Roitfeld will curate a fashion show for the Cinema against AIDS gala in Cannes. The main aim again, aside from using her creative vision to produce an opulent and glamorous show is raising money for amfAR. Last year the runway show raised nearly $11 million and this year Roitfeld will have over 40 top models including Karlie Kloss and Lily Donaldson walking the runway in custom-made gowns by the likes of Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford.  There will also be exclusive one off designs by accessories designers including Pamela Love.

A taster of the designs have been provided by artist Lula who has produced the exquisitely beautiful illustrations in this article.

If this all sounds too fabulous to miss then worry not, you can watch the  ‘The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show” via a live stream on Lovegold.com tonight from8pm (GMT).  You can also follow the twitter hashtags #amfARCannes and #lovegoldcannes. Don’t forget to tweet @centmagazine your thoughts on the show.
