The gala will feature a red-themed fashion show with gowns created by the world’s top designers and a spectacular cast of the industry’s top models, as well as a line-up of famous musicians.Come sponsor del AmfAR The Foundation for AIDS Research Cinema Against AIDS 21 gala, Bulgari donerà una delle sue favolose collane di alta gioielleria Serpenti a beneficio della causa.
