HEADING SOUTH: AmfAR will hold its annual Inspiration Gala in São Paulo tonight, where Sharon Stone, the organization’s global fund-raising chairman, is expected to be joined by the likes of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Riccardo Tisci and Mary J. Blige, who will perform.

The Louis Vuitton-sponsored event is being held at the home of Dinho Diniz and will honor entrepreneur Nizan Guanaes and Vogue Brasil style director Donata Meirelles for their work in fighting AIDS.

Stone will preside over the live auction, which will include such items as tickets to Givenchy’s spring women’s ready-to-wear show in Paris with an evening dress, accessories and a handbag designed by Tisci, a custom portrait by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz and a Richard Phillips surfboard.
