Gazing up at the dark, handsome man by her side, it”s clear Kylie Minogue is still besotted with her boyfriend of five years Andrés Velencoso. The couple made a rare red carpet appearance at the annual amfAR Cinema against AIDS benefit in Cannes, and looked picture perfect as they cuddled up together outside the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc.
The Australian singer looked incredible in a plunging white Roberto Cavalli gown that showed off her curves and featured a sexy thigh-high split. Looking years younger than her age, the star, 44, was the belle of the ball at the glamorous celebrity event.
Ahead of their arrival, Kylie shared a series of photos on Instagram showing her getting ready and joking around with her man. The behind-the-scenes snaps show her applying lip gloss and twirling around in her dress. Another pic shows Kylie and Andrés, 35, doing a fun pose for the camera.
The couple, who live together in London, mingled with the likes of Heidi Klum, Goldie Hawn, Sharon Stone, Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman and Aishwarya Rai inside the glitzy gala. The annual Cannes event helps raise money for the Foundation of AIDS research.
Sharon, 55, looked sensational wearing a white figure-hugging dress, also designed by Roberto Cavalli, at the event, which raised an incredible $32.3 million more than double the $14.2 made at last year”s fundraiser.
The highlight auction lot was a trip into space with Leonardo DiCaprio which was sold for $1.5 million.The unique opportunity, which will include three days training in Mexico with the Great Gatsby star, was snapped up by Monaco-based Russian estate agent Vasily Klyukin, 37.
“I want to be a bit daring,” he said. “I will have to give up smoking now for sure!”. He and Leo will be among the first 1,000 people to leave the planet on the Virgin Galactic flight.
Other lots included a Damian Hirst painting, an Annie Leibovitz family portrait, the chance to star in four films and a private performance by Simon Le Bon and John Taylor from Duran Duran.
The British band performed on the night, as did Shirley Bassey and Ellie Goulding.
