The Best Moments from Miley's Night Out at amfAR's Inspiration Gala
POSING WITH HER HOT DATE
Miley Cyrus had a blast at Tuesday night's amfAR Inspiration Gala in N.Y.C. with her agender date, Tyler Ford. The 24-year-old, who was a contestant on the second season of The Glee Project, has modeled for Cyrus's #InstaPride campaign, which shares the "stories of transgender and gender expansive people around the country."
MAKING MOM & DAD PROUD
She was also accompanied by her parents, Tish and Billy Ray, whom she honored in her emotional speech. "I just wanna tell my parents that I hope that this makes them proud and somehow makes up for all the s––t that I do, all the time," she said, tearing up. "You are two of the most selfless people, and you have taught me and all my siblings how important it is to be there for those who need us and how important it is to care about other people and their lives."
STICKING HER TONGUE OUT WITH ANDY COHEN
Like Cyrus, Cohen was honored with the AIDS Foundation's Inspiration Award, which (obviously) requires celebrating in the form of selfie-snapping.
HONORING THOSE WHO'RE FIGHTING ALONGSIDE HER
"There are so many people around the world that deserve this recognition," said Cyrus as she accepted her award. "They've dedicated their lives to finding a cure for those living with HIV and AIDS, and they've used their voices to speak out against the brutal and unfair condemnation and the abominable stigma that comes with this disease. And by receiving this award tonight, I promise to continue to fight along … for a cure for this epidemic."
LOOKING FIERCE AS HELL
Cyrus showed off her graphic red gown alongside her date, Ford, and transgender activist and OITNB actress Laverne Cox.
SERIOUSLY, THE GIRL LOOKED FIERCE
Braids? Red hair jewels? Sequences? Old-school gloves? We're into it.
BREAKING FASHION RULES
The star paired her custom Moschino dress with Doc Martens.
RAISING MORE THAN $69,000 FOR AIDS RESEARCH
"I hope one day that I'm here on earth to experience an AIDS-free world," Cyrus said on stage. To help, the pop star and founder of the Happy Hippie Foundation auctioned off the "Caitlyn Collection"– three framed shots of Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of Vanity Fair with her own bedazzled drawings and signature – which sold for a whopping $69,000 after she prodded the crowd with, "My left boob is bigger than the right: I'll show you! What about $69,000? I'll clean your house … naked!"
FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HER IDOL
In her speech, Cyrus gave a shout to a personal heroine: Audrey Hepburn. "She said, 'As you grow older, you will realize that you have two hands – you've got one for helping yourself and one for helping other people', " Cyrus said. "Thank you for instilling that in me."
