Bearded lady Conchita Wurst, the alter ego of 25-year-old Thomas Neuwirth, was photographed attending amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday (May 22). The Eurovision winner was joined at the lavish event by a host of celebrities, including Sharon Stone, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Irina Shayk, Kylie Minogue and Nicole Scherzinger.

Making the most striking entrance among the beautiful women at the gala, Conchita Wurst shined on the red carpet in a shimmering sequined gown that showed off her slim figure. The Austrian bearded drag queen kept her long dark locks in loose waves to complete her appearance for the occasion. Clearly enjoying her newfound fame after winning the Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita Wurst shared her feelings at the event, saying: "I love this. This is the life I always wanted. So it feels really great.”
