Lucky bidders at last night's amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS gala got to bid on a back massage from Heidi Klum and a bite from "The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev.
The stars came out in force for the annual Cannes Film Festival gala, which was held at the Hotel du Cap. During the dinner and auction, several musicians took the stage, singing money-themed songs -- hip hop star Aloe Blacc performed "I Need a Dollar," and vocalist Jessie J opted for her hit "Price Tag." It appears that attendees got the message, donating nearly $11 million -- a record for the charity, reports the Associated Press.
An Andy Warhol print of Marilyn Monroe sold for $753,000 while a private lesson with tennis Novak Djokovic sold for $133,000. Heidi Klum's massage, which the star had offered in addition to a Cartier watch, sold for $62,839. But the highest price tag item of the night was a chance to star in a short film directed by designer Karl Lagerfeld and produced by Harvey Weinstein. It sold for $1 million. In fact, the prize was so popular that Lagerfeld and Weinstein decided to extend the offer to a second bidder as well.
After the auction, Kate Upton, Berenice Bejo, Mila Jovovich, Antonio Banderas, Janet Jackson, Alec Baldwin, Kylie Minogue, Gerard Butler and Kim Kardashian partied until the wee hours of the night, dancing hard as the DJ spun tunes in a tribute to Donna Summer.
Baldwin was supposed to be a host of the auction, but the “30 Rock” star dropped out at the 11th hour due to a tiff with Weinstein during the festival. The two later smoothed things over, Page Six reported.Follow @PageSix
