A constellation of showbiz stars will don their best designer outfits Thursday 22 May, for an exclusive AIDS benefit to be presented by Elizabeth Taylor at a heavily-guarded property outside Cannes.

Elton John, Meg Ryan, Elizabeth Hurley, Steven Soderbergh, Naomi Campbell, Monica Seles and David Hasselhoff are all expected at the bash to raise money for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR), founded by Elisabeth Taylor but now headed by Sharon Stone

The party, a traditional fixture at the Cannes film festival currently underway, is one of the most exclusive on the Riviera.
