AMFAR HONOREES: AmfAR has selected the honorees of its annual New York gala at the start of fashion week, and they are members of the same prestigious acting dynasty, Vanessa Redgrave and her daughter Joely Richardson. The AIDS research foundation is bestowing the honors on the actresses for their efforts on behalf of the fight against the epidemic.
Redgrave’s other daughter, the late Natasha Richardson, had also been a tireless advocate for the foundation. Fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, a longtime donor, is also being honored at the black-tie dinner, now in its 16th year, at Cipriani Wall Street in February, which will include performances by Nile Rodgers and Chic. Previous honorees include cofounder Elizabeth Taylor and Bill Clinton.
