Alexa Demie is slowly making herself known and for all the right reasons. In 2020 she was present at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party and she did not disappoint her style-observers.
The “Euphoria” actress wore a black shoulderless see-through Giambattista Valli gown with puffy sleeves, adorned with flower motifs, from the Spring 2019 Couture collection.
She finished off the outfit with a pair of Jimmy Choo Metz 100 sandals with a square toe. She wore no jewelry, which was an appropriate choice seen the intricate nature of the dress.
Makeup artist Raoúl Alejandre hand painted a 60’s 70’s inspired 3D eyeliner–the lower baby lashes were the focal point. The look reminded us a lot of Edwige Fenech and Twiggy.
Manicurist Natalie Minerva used Aprés nail extensions in the style ‘Long Natural Stiletto‘, painting the edge of the nail with a Riccagel nail polish in the shade 094A, leaving the nail plate natural.
The foundation is a nonprofit organization, established by Sir Elton John–in 1992 in the United States and 1993 in the United Kingdom–to support innovative HIV prevention, education programs, direct care and support services to people living with HIV. It has raised over $600 million to support HIV related programs in fifty-five countries.
The organization supports its work through proceeds from special events, cause-related marketing projects, and voluntary contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. The foundation’s U.S. and U.K. branches work separately. Each focuses on different regions of the world; as a result, the organization is able to reach a broader scope of the world. The U.S. branch works in the Americas and the Caribbean, while the U.K. branch focuses on Europe, Asia and Africa.
The organization has been well-known in Hollywood since 1993, when it began hosting the annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party.
EJAF is chaired by David Furnish, a producer of theater and music. He has been in a relationship with Elton John since 1993; they entered a civil partnership in 2005 and married in 2014.
