Sarah Jessica Parker attended the high profile charity event, which raises funds for AIDS research, HIV prevention and treatment education.

The Sex and the City star wore a polka dot gown from Schiaparelli’s Spring 2014 Couture collection, featuring off the shoulder and balloon sleeve detailing.

Showcasing her innate sense of bohemian style, she added her own finishing touches with a random selection of jewellery and simple, loose waves.

Singer Fergie was joined at the event by her handsome husband Josh Duhamel, who was hosting the event.

Ten months after giving birth to her son, the Black Eyed Peas vocalist showed off her svelte frame in a figure-hugging column gown by Calvin Klein.

Prominent New York real estate agent and Tv host Melanie Lazenby showed off a stellar set of abs in a cut-out Alexander McQueen number, which fans may remember Nicki Minaj wearing to the Billboard Music Awards.

Also in attendance at the event were Victoria’s Secret models Karolina Kurkova and Elsa Hosk, Orange Is The New Black’s Laverne Cox, designers Zac Posen and Francisco Costa, and Vogue’s Hamish Bowles and Franca Sozzani.

The gala featured a performance from British rock band New Order along with a runway show,  dinner and auction.
