On May 23, the 20th amfAR gala took place at the Cap D'Antibes, France, near the Cannes Film Festival. This year's gala raised an estimated $25 million for AIDS research. Actress Sharon Stone hosted the event, taking over for amfAR Founder Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away in 2011. The gala featured a gold-themed auction at the French Riviera's Hotel Du Cap. Shirley Bassey, celebrated "Goldfinger" singer, and Duran Duran both performed gold-themed tunes.
