AmfAR Gala in Sao Paulo
Calvin Klein collection designer, Francisco Costa, receives Piaget Award of Inspiration and Jennifer Hudson wears Vintage Piaget cuff watch.
For the second year in a row, Piaget, jeweler and watchmaker is proud to support amfAR on their glamorous, Inspiration Gala series, with the latest being held in Sao Paulo, one of South America’s most dynamic cities. The glittering black tie affair honored Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, who received the Piaget Award of Inspiration from Hollywood leading lady, Claire Danes, in recognition of his extraordinary commitments to raising HIV/AIDS awareness and advancing AIDS research.
Held at the breathtaking home of Event Chair, Felipe Diniz, the gala dinner attracted a fashionable crowd including Brazilian supermodels, Alessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Isabeli Fontana and Mariana Weckeft, along with Andrea Dellal, Lorenzo Martone, Sabrina Sato, Preta Gil and Reynaldo Gianechini. Guests were treated to a live performance by singing sensation, Jennifer Hudson. She dazzled the room in a vintage cuff watch from Piaget, handcrafted in yellow gold with a jade dial, and a pair of yellow gold diamond and gemstone earrings.
The event marked the fourth in the Inspiration Gala series as well as the official kick-off for 2011. Piaget will also partner with amfAR on the three remaining events to be held this year, including New York on June 14th at MOMA, followed by Paris on June 23rd and Los Angeles in the fall. To date, the Inspiration Galas have raised more than $1 million for AIDS research.
