Jlo amfar You've got to hand it to Jennifer Lopez -- stopping the show on any given red carpet is always a viable plan for the Latina diva.

In a pink Roberto Cavalli creation, Lopez (with husband Marc Anthony) owned the annual amFAR Cinema Against AIDS benefit, held at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc in Antibes, France. 

Lopez was joined by an embarrassment of her famous pals, including Kate Beckinsale, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, Benicio Del Toro, Mary J. Blige, Marion Cotillard, Gerard Butler and Michelle Williams, all in town for the 63rd Cannes International Film Festival.

Young Hollywood made a showing as well, with gals like Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and Mischa Barton dropping by in their evening wear, alongside designers Karl Lagerfeld, Kenneth Cole and Tom Ford.

Let us not forget Elizabeth Banks, Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt and Grace Jones.

The annual benefit raises millions for AIDS research thanks to its high-stakes auction, previously hosted by the likes of Sharon Stone.

Get more glam pics after the break ...
