CONCHITA WURST IN CANNES FOR A GALA
EXPRESS.COM.UK REPORTS – CANNES, FRANCE – She won Europe over at this year’s Eurovision song contest, beating favourites Sweden to the top spot. But it looks as though Conchita Wurst is set to make her mark on the rest of the world too after she was spotted rubbing shoulders with Hollywood’s finest at this year’s Cannes film festival.
Looking typically glamorous, the singer/songwriter made her arrival at the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS charity gala last night, and as usual, made sure all eyes were on her. Wearing a stunning floor length gown, the 26-year-old – whose real name is Tom Neuwirth – posed up a storm at the event, looking seductively into the cameras while showing off her elegance and poise.
Complete with her signature black facial hair, which saw her dubbed The Bearded Lady at this year’s singing competition, Conchita looked fabulous as she happily mingled with the host of A-listers, including Heidi Klum and Nicole Scherzinger. Appearing in good spirits as she made her way into the event, which was held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, the star took to her Twitter account to air her excitement that the night held for her.
“#amfARCannes it was great! Thank you Gery Keszler for fulfilling my dreams!” she wrote alongside a snap of herself in some idyllic gardens.
The amfAR gala is one of the highlights of the Cannes Film Festival attracting support from global stars such as Sharon Stone, Heidi Klum and Aishwarya Rai. This year’s guest list includes Jessica Chastain, Berenice Bejo, Adrien Brody and Robin Thicke, who will perform at Thursday’s event.
