On Tuesday, June 16, 2015, amfAR will hold its sixth annual Inspiration Gala New York, honoring Miley Cyrus and Andy Cohen for their longtime support towards the fight against AIDS.
Hosted by Anderson Cooper, the black-tie gala will also feature an auction. The theme of this year’s fashion show and auction is “Street Art/Street Fashion”. HIV/AIDS Awareness is very important to Miley and she has been a long time supporter of amfAR, the M·A·C AIDS Fund, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation. She is currently the spokesperson for M·A·C Cosmetics’ VIVA GLAM campaign, where every cent of the lip products go towards the M·A·C AIDS Fund helping people globally affected by the disease. This year, Miley is focusing her efforts with the M·A·C AIDS Fund on raising awareness and ending the HIV/AIDS stigma, particularly around marginalized youth.
Past Inspiration New York honorees and participants include Matt Bomer, Jennifer Lopez, Fergie, Heidi Klum, Kenneth Cole, James Franco, Uma Thurman, Alan Cumming, Michael Kors, Ricky Martin, Valentino, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Inspiration New York galas have also featured stunning performances by renown artists such as New Order, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jennifer Hudson, Liza Minneli, Courtney Love, Scissor Sisters, and Cyndi Lauper.
