Supermodel Linda Evangelista and singer Patti Labelle were star guests at one of the glitziest parties of the year - the 2004 FASHION CARES HIV/AIDS fundraiser.

LaBelle, 60, was the featured performer at the 18th annual HIV/AIDS benefit held at the weekend (29MAY04) in Toronto, Canada - while Evangelista hosted the runway show.

Evangelista says, "It's so great to finally do something here in my homeland."

Wearing a bejewelled headdress with feathers cascading down her back, LaBelle joked to the 5,600 crowd, "You know I must really care if I put this hat on my head."
