PHOTOS: Stars Don Daring Dresses for 2014 amfAR Gala

When it comes to a certain glitzy gala, the stars wanted to shine in their most head-turning couture. PHOTOS: Celebs Love Their Daring Dresses Miley Cyrus and Rihanna were among the celebs making people stare at the amfAR Gala Auction held on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.  The 21-year-old "Hanna-Montana"-star-turned-"Bangerz"-chart-topper nearly broke necks with her S&M-inspired gown, featuring a sheer top and strapped bodice. (Can you say "yowza"?) Meanwhile, 26-year-old “Diamonds” singer Rihanna sparkled in a white hot gown from the Tom Ford spring 2015 collection, which highlighed a thigh-high slit and a sheer bra top with purple embellishments that accentuated her assets. (Think high fashion pasties.) PHOTOS: Sheer and Cut-Out Dresses Make a Splash on the Red Carpet But it all wasn’t just a fashion affair. The celebs were there to raise money, and PEOPLE magazine reports that Cyrus won a bidding war against Ford himself — the night’s honoree. The prize? A print of a nude woman by photographer McGinley, which sold for $300,000. According to amfAR, the star-studded event raised over $3 million for AIDS research — and we're sure everybody's outfits gave amfAR a nice boost of publicity, too.  Speaking of which, check out the many other celebs that opted for daring couture below:
