The stars in Atlanta were aligned on Monday, August 26, and they all happened to be at the 21st annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta – one of the country’s largest charity events benefiting the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The event, hosted by arbiter of style Jeffrey Kalinsky, takes place each year in both Atlanta and New York and has raised over $11 million since its inception. On Monday night, 800 of Atlanta’s most stylish people walked the red carpet and enjoyed a cocktail reception, fashion show, silent and live auctions, and an after-party at the American Cancer Society in Downtown Atlanta.
