Janet Jackson will host AIDS charity amfaR's first benefit in Milan, during fashion week on 28th September 2009. amfaR who have never hosted an event in Milan said today, 'for amfAR, coming to Milan is like coming homeor at least like visiting your closest friends. The Italian fashion community has been incredibly welcoming and generous to amfAR.'
amfaR's biggest charity event of the year is usually the gala auction it holds during the Cannes Film Festival.
Janet Jackson will host the event, amfAR Milano, with the help of Dsquared², BMW Group Italia, and Lambertz.
The black-tie party will take place at Milans La Permanente hotel, DJ Bob Sinclar will provide the music, while Dita Von Teese will put in a special burlesque performance.
amfARs chief executive officer Kevin Robert Frost said '[Janet Jackson] brings incomparable grace and a history of dedication to the fight against AIDS.'
And no doubt a glittering guest list.More
