Rihanna to Present Tom Ford With amfAR Award

Published

on

It’s going to be another star-studded evening when amfAR throws its annual Los Angeles Inspiration Gala later this month.

And E! is happy to exclusively reveal that Rihanna will present Tom Ford with the AIDS group’s Award of Inspiration in recognition of his support in helping battle the decades long AIDS crisis.

“Tom has inspired so many aspects of my art over the years, not to mention his clothes give me a real bad attitude,” the singer exclusively tells E!. “His commitment to the cause and commitment to amfAR is truly admirable.”

Gwyneth Paltrow will host the black-tie fundraiser, which takes place Oct. 29 at Milk Studios. Sharon Stone will also be at the gala and will likely take a leading role in the night’s live auction. (We’ve seen Ms. Stone in action—she has an awe-inspiring skill in getting people to give, give and give.)

Previous Inspiration honorees include Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Lopez, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ricky Martin, James Franco, Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa and Fergie. Produced by Josh Wood Productions, Inspiration galas have also taken place in Paris, New York, Miami, Toronto, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The events have raised more than $15 million.

In April, Ford announced he and his partner of 25 years Richard Buckley secretly got married.

“I lost so many friends in college–I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married, which is nice,” the designer reportedly said at the opening of the Regent Street Apple store in London. “I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States.”

The two, who are parents to son Alexander John Buckley Ford, first met at a fashion show in the ’80s.

“I went to a fashion show and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes,” Ford told WWD in a past interview. “It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future.”

“I am thrilled to bring the Diamond Ball to New York City and bring everyone closer to the mission, the partnerships, the programs and the people at the heart of it all,” said Rihanna at the 2017 Diamond Ball. “Together, we are funding groundbreaking and effective global education, health and emergency response programs.
