The amFAR New York Inspiration Gala at The New York Public Library brought out many of the world's most inspirational: Cyndi Lauper, Kylie Minogue and Ricky Martin, to name a few. So, yes, the clothes were absurd:

Kylie Minogue is either preparing for a run in Chicago or...raided their nearby costume shop. Either way: well-played, madam.


Although, having seen Estelle, I'm starting to believe the invite read "S&M Festive with a touch of LARP!"


Actress Amanda Setton may have the legal authority to marry people. As Friar Tuck. In a community theatre production of Robin Hood. This is not a bad thing.


Tinsley Mortimer is seriously under-dressed. Where does she think she is? One tumor-like shoulder thing doesn't cut it, honey!

Zimucha.


You know what's not awesome about Michelle Harper's Return to Oz special? NOTHING.
