Recently the fashionable people came out for the amFAR Inspiration Gala, which is a foundation founded in 1985 with the goal of ending global Aids/HIV epidemic through innovative research (http://www.amfar.org/about.html). 

Since its inception in 2010, the Inspiration series has grown to include Galas in five cities around the world: New York, Paris, Los Angeles, São Paulo, and Miami, with each year featuring a different design “Inspiration.” In 2013, two additional cities—Toronto and Rio de Janeiro—will be added to that list. Performers at past events have included Grace Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Liza Minnelli, Sinéad O’Connor, Debbie Harry, Courtney Love, Dita Von Teese, Cyndi Lauper, Kelly Rowland, Scissor Sisters, Hercules and Love Affair, and Katy Perry. Past participants have included Sharon Stone, Sandra Bullock, Andy Cohen, Francisco Costa, Claire Danes, Marc Jacobs, Sofia Coppola, Kevin Huvane, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Chelsea Handler. To date, the Inspiration series has raised more than $6 million to benefit amfAR. 

Let's get to the fashions of the night and my favorite picks, of course I liked the nod to the 30's, D'Squared was on point with several picks on the red carpet as well as (my fantasy bff) Tom Ford.
