amfAR's Next Set of Honorees: Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, and Peter Lindbergh
(NEW YORK) As the annual tee-off for NYFW each Febuary, the amfAR Gala gathers the crème de la crème of the style set for a philanthropic black tie evening. This year’s fête will be hosted at Cipriani Wall Street on February 5th. Now in its 16th year, the annual gala benefits amfAR’s AIDS-eradicating work.
Set to receive the Award of Courage this year? Actress Vanessa Redgrave and her daughter, Joely Richardson. Redgrave’s late husband, and Richardson’s father, director Tony Richardson, passed away from AIDS in 1991. Since then, the mother-daughter duo has been dedicated to educating others about the disease while the search for a cure continues. Esteemed fashion photog, Peter Lindbergh, will also be recognized for his donations to the organization over the years. Previous recipients of the award have included the likes of Sir Elton John, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour, and Heidi Klum. This year, musical entertainment will be provided by Nile Rodgers and Chic.
