Last night amfAR held its 22nd annual Cinema Against AIDS fundraiser gala in Cap d'Antibes and I know what you're thinking: another day in the South of France, another ball gown.

And yes, you would be right. But amfAR's extravagant affair attracted pretty much everyone and their mother to help raise awareness and funds for AIDS research, instantly giving red carpet dressing a whole new meaning and depth.

So who was there? Well, a bevy of supermodels: Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, Lara Stone, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Adriana LimaChanel Iman

I'm not sure exactly what the theme was for last night, but the beauties all interpreted it quite differently. From gold lamé to sequins to dramatic trains, the looks were disparate. However, there were at least the repeated details of ample cleavage and strategically placed cutouts to unify this comely crew.

Kendall couldn't resist pulling a page from Lupita Nyong'o's book, though, and twirled that plum train of hers all about, making a grand entrance.

Of course, Hollywood's biggest and brightest starlets were also in attendance and resident hippies Zoë Kravitz and Sienna Miller took a noticeably chill approach to dressing for the occasion. Wearing slinky floor-length gowns rather casually, with bed head and very little accessories, these two somehow made it seem chic, not sloppy.

There was nothing *basic* about Marion Cotillard's emerald Jean Paul Gaultier number or Diane Kruger's Chanel feathered mini dress, but there is something remarkably unrestrained about these looks. Maybe its Kruger's undone hair or the streamlined silhouette of Cotillard's gown, but I feel like the actresses' personalities and natural beauty are shining through with these choices.

Of course there were guests with no chill (it's a gala after all) what with Paris Hilton (yes, that one), the ubiquitous Rita Ora, Mary J. Blige, and Dita von Teese breezing through in intricate, adorned, and embellished styles that were to be expected, but no less beautiful.

Inside, it seemed every supermodel who wasn't walking in the night's charity fashion show — which was styled by CR editor Carine Roitfeld — was either on the dance floor losing her motherloving mind, or onstage helping raise a reported $35 million for the amfAR foundation.
