amfAR Rocked!!!

Yesterday was a very crazy day for me. I ran around town like a supermodel on a go-see frenzy, as if Paris was burning. I headed downtown to get fitted with Darren; who is a fierce up and coming designer that is turning-out all of my red-carpet looks. He stitched up the only Galliano inspired frock for me to make a splash in last night at this years 15th annual amfAR Rocks benefit soire. After my fitting, I headed back uptown to check in on my baby Lola to make sure everything was ok, and it was. The phone was ringing off the hook. First, it was my manager Dexter checking up on my day, then it was my other manager Joseph trying to get my measurements over to Onyx; who is crafting up all of my performance looks, and then it was my publicist Len checking in to see if I was running on schedule as planned. I was like can the doll breathe for a minute? And the answer was no, because I was one of the many invited celebrity guests, and this was a big night out on the charity circuit - benefiting The American Foundation for AIDS Research. The theme this year was art deco inspired - chic black, red, white, or a combination of them all; hence the invite design (pictured) - and the doll was on top of it.

I attended the event with Len (pictured), pressed, and camera-ready for the papparazzi to capture all the glitz and glam of "the" arrival. Among the other celebrity guests present, their was Queer Eye's Carson Krestley, Super Model Devon Aoki, and Aiden & Megan Turner to name a few. It was wonderful to be there in a room filled with all kinds of people donating tons of money to a wonderful cause, and at the same time having fun. And yeah, you too can be part of such wonderful events, by visiting www.amfar.org . They have all sorts of events happening throughout the year that you can purchase tickets to attend or you can just simply make a donation on their site.

amfAR Rocks is a restaurant tasting and dance party in support of Aids Research. Over 1,000 New Yorkers danced the night away to DJ personality Lady Bunny's pumping disco treats, while sampling some of the city’s finest cuisine; which was on point, honey! Guests were also able to bid on items in an exclusive silent auction and participate in a raffle of luxury goods. The event is organized by a volunteer committee of artists and professionals; one of many being my business manager Dexter (pictured with his husband Daniel), and is dedicated to mobilizing friends and colleagues in support of amfAR’s AIDS research programs and raising AIDS awareness among young people. Since 1992, amfAR Rocks has raised over $2.8 million in support of AIDS research, and diligently continues to raise even more in hopes to finding a cure, hellllio!

It is a great organization, and again I invite you to support them at www.amfar.org
