  • Sharon Stone joined Roberto Cavalli, Solange Knowles, Dree Hemmingway and Livia Firth at the glamorous Milan Fashion Week party

    The fash pack were out in full force on Saturday night for the glamorous AmfAR Gala in Milan, which netted more than $1.1m for the organisation’s AIDS research programmes.

    Sharon Stone looked stunning as she auctioned off several hundred thousand dollars worth of artwork by Robert Rauschenberg and Damien Hirst at the annual charity dinner at the Permanente Museum in Milan.

    The actress, 57, who was papped getting flirty with her new toyboy lover, 27-year-old model Martin Mica, was also joined by an A-list crowd including Roberto Cavalli, Livia Firth, Dree Hemmingway, Solange Knowles, as well as several members of the Missoni and Fendi families.

    Over the three hour dinner, Stone worked the auction block, selling a Damian Hirst spot etching and a Louis Vuitton vanity case, which she designed herself, which went for €70,000. Stone also coaxed Cavalli into paying €35,000 for a special edition of the famous Bocca sofa inspired by Mae West’s lips.

    It was touch and go as to whether Sharon would be able to attend the event after she fainted and was hospitalised following the Fendi S/S 2013 show.

    The actress, who suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2001, complained of a migraine but was later discharged and able to attend the charity soiree.

    Her rep said: ‘Sharon experienced migraine related symptoms, and we all felt it best that she got checked out before the amfAR event. She was examined and given a clean bill of health. And as she said, wild horses couldn’t keep her away.’
