It was a who’s who of celebs last night at the amfAR Inspiration gala in Los Angeles. Guests including Sharon Stone, Chelsea Handler, Allesandra Ambrosio, Devon Aoki,  Kurt Russell, Vanessa Hudgens, Laura Preppon, Paula Abdul, Lydia Hearst, Kenneth Cole, Giles Marini, Allison Sweeney, Kelly Osbourne, Zoe Saldana and honorees Goldie Hawn and Aileen Getty lent their support to amfAR and the organization’s lifesaving work to support AIDS research and HIV prevention.( Having Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Belvedere Vodka provide the drinks probably helped the guests to be more “generous.”)

Chelsea Handler hosted the evening’s festivities commenting that “she was surprised that she was invited back after last year.” Handler was wearing the same black dress that she had worn for her show taping that same day, joking that Kenneth Cole (one of the evening’s co-chairs) had only provided one pair of shoes as an option for the evening’s festivities. As they evening wore on, Handler (who was assumed to have been enjoying Belvedere’s cocktails) seemed slightly inebriated and towards the end of the evening donated $100,000 to the cause, exclaiming “How about that” to Sharon Stone.

Goldie Hawn, one of the evening’s honorees looked beeautiful in a sea foam / turquoise colored dress. She was presented her amfAR Humanitarian Award from former “Laugh-in” co-star Lily Tomlin and commented she was honored to help further the cause.

Sharon Stone kicked off the evening’s auction serving as co-auctioneer with Andrea Fiuczynsk of Christies. Stone worked the crowd and offered to make out with guests to get them to bid up the items. At one point she walked into the audience and kissed one of the bidders.

Event honoree Aileen Getty was an inspiration to many in attendance for her charitable work and to support amfAR’s cause. She announced that she was donating $1 million dollars to amFAR during the dinner. An amount that was matched by a personal donation from her sister who vouched for a $500,000 donation.

Grace Jones ended the evening’s festivities with a performance that brought down the house. Jones had three costume changes during her performance and ended singing while hula hooping, commenting “I’ just got off an 11 hour flight or else I would have hula-hooped longer). Former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant Giles Marini was seen dancing to Grace Jones’ performance.
