Another Cannes red carpet lit up today, but this time it was about charity instead of movies as the stars came out for Sharon Stone's annual amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS 2009 benefit. After a long night of partying with Brad and Angelina, Joshua Jackson accompanied Diane Kruger to the event, while Paris and Doug represented a different kind of couple. Robert Pattinson didn't need a leading lady on his arm to stand out in another dapper suit and Josh Hartnett also provided some eye candy for the ladies. The festival is starting to wind down, but the celebs still seem to be bringing out their best to the hectic schedule of events.
London's Hyde Park turned into a party scene this afternoon as Nelson Mandela kept on celebrating his ninetieth birthday with a star-studded concert. Will and Jada were up and at 'em after last night's Elton John party to get on stage, while Geri Halliwell and Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton, surveyed the scene. Amy Winehouse, who was looking unusually tan, managed to take the stage despite her recent health problems. A crowd of 46,664, a number chosen as that was Nelson's prison number during his 27-year incarceration in South Africa, turned out to mark the occasion. Between this big show and dinner with his friends on Wednesday evening, hopefully Mr. Mandela had a perfect and memorable birthday.

It was a 90th birthday party to remember for Nelson Mandela, who went big for his star-studded celebration in London's Hyde Park yesterday. Will Smith managed to tear himself away from his non-stop promotional tour of Hancock to catch up with his buddies Robert de Niro, Forest Whitaker and Denzel Washington, and of course to spend some time with Jada. There was no sign of Amy Winehouse, but Naomi Campbell was happy to provide the drama, showing up even though Nelson personally requested she be removed from the guest list after her recent legal issues.
Lots more photos including Bill Clinton, Emma Thompson, Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan and others, so just read more
Annie Lennox, a lesson in androgyny. She definitely took it to the extreme '80s: straight-cut suiting, a black and white color palette and a bright red buzz cut. Menswear has been a favored trend of the last year whereas it was Lennox's signature. Oh, and that voice of hers. This hypnotizing song has one of the most distinctive synthesizer sounds. You know this song from the first five seconds and cannot shake it out of your head. Not that it's a nuisance — it's a classic. The video itself is serious and dream-like, kinda odd, sort of like Lennox. And like that, you wake up and it was all a dream . . .
