Kendall Jenner, Antonio Banderas and other stars attending the nearby Cannes Film Festival stepped out Thursday for the 26th amfAR Gala to raise money for AIDS research. Mariah Carey gave a special performance for the dinner guests along with Tom Jones and Dua Lipa during Thursday’s event at the famed Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Charli XCX provided the live entertainment at the after-party.

The event is a fixture during the Cannes Film Festival with its sit-down black tie dinner, star-filled live auction and a designer fashion show curated by Carine Roitfeld. The looks were then auctioned off for one million euros ($1.12 million).

Along with Jenner and Banderas, Pamela Anderson, Patricia Arquette, Rebel Wilson and Adrien Brody were among the stars at the gala. Winnie Harlow, Adriana Lima and Natasha Poly lent some extra glamour to the red carpet. The gala also attracts Europe’s elite, some of whom bid on opulent items for sale.
