AmfAR has announced it will honor the late Natasha Richardson on February 10 at its annual gala to kick off New York City’s Fashion Week. Richardson, pictured with mother Vanessa Redgrave and sister Joely Richardson, was an AmfAR spokesperson and board member. Richardson passed away last year in a tragic skiing accident, leaving behind two children with husband Liam Neeson.
The cause is near to the family’s heart. Richardson’s father, the Oscar-winning British film director Tony Richardson, died of AIDS-related causes in 1991.
