Every year the starlets of Hollywood come together for the amfAR Gala (The American Foundation for AIDS Research), which took place on October 13th in Los Angeles this year. Always a charitable occasion to raise funds for the non-profit organization, the annual gala also honoured one actress in particular, Julia Roberts.

At the eighth annual celebration, fellow actor and friend Tom Hanks presented the Pretty Woman icon with the amfAR Award of Courage as recognition of her contributions to the fight against AIDS.

To date, the amfAR Gala Los Angeles has raised more than $11 million for amfAR’s lifesaving research programs. Playing a vital role in AIDS research, the organization identifies the critical gaps in our knowledge of HIV and AIDS, and supports groundbreaking studies that often lack the preliminary data required by more traditional funders.

The ceremony was hosted by Briton James Corden, who had quite the controversial opening monologue, with singer Fergie giving an energetic performance during the gala. An extra special guest also performed on the night, giving the attendees quite a show.

The red (black) carpet was rolled out for all the occasion, with attendees including actors Kate Hudson and mother Goldie Hawn, Melanie Griffith, models Heidi Klum, Selita Ebanks and Dita Von Teese, as well as bloggers Aimee Song and Camila Coehlo, and fashion people Chris Salgardo and Patricia Bonaldi.
