Madonna’s Benefit for Raising Malawi where BVLGARI Launched Zaha Hadid-designed B.zero1

By Whitewall

December 5, 2016

Last Friday, December 2, Madonna hosted an evening of art, mischief, and music in Miami, raising $7.5 million for her Raising Malawi foundation. Held at the newly opened Faena Forum, the evening was supported by BVLGARI, introducing its new B.zero1 Design Legend jewelry created by the late architect Zaha Hadid.

Hadid found inspiration in Rome’s Colosseum to design a three-band ring in pink and white gold, a four-band ring, and pendant in pink gold, for the design-focused collection.

The MC for the night was James Cordon, host of the Late Late Show. Pierre Dolmans curated the art auction with Lisa Schiff, and Milutin Gatsby was the Fundraising Chairman for the star-studded night.

Aside from giving guests a 10-song performance, Madonna populated the live auction conducted by Paddle8‘s Alexander Gilkes with works from her personal collection, including pieces by Tamara de Lempicka, Tracey Emin, and Herb Ritts.
