Princess Mette-Marit of Norway was honored by amfAR for her commitment to the fight against HIV and AIDS. Her Royal Highness, who is also a UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador, was humbled by the accolade. SOUNDBITE: Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, saying (English): "I'm incredibly happy and - It's a big day for me today. Especially as amfAR is an organization that does such incredible work in the AIDS response over the last 30 years." New parents Fergie and Josh Duhamel turned heads on the red carpet before Josh began his hosting duties. The new father says he hopes his commitment is an example for his son. SOUNDBITE: Josh Duhamel, actor, saying (English): "I definitely want my kid to be a part of things that can improve the greater good in some way. But this was something that I've been involved with well before he got here. The idea is to raise somebody who wants to be a part of things like this because it's a really, really great cause." Designer and amfAR chair, Kenneth Cole says that in addition to raising money, the night will also be the launch of the new 'countdown to a cure' initiative. SOUNDBITE: Kenneth Cole, designer, amfAR chair, saying (English): "This is about committing all our resources to find a cure by the end of 2020, a functional cure. Which really is rather ambitious, we don't really need to do it but our feeling is just put all our resources to bare, take no prisoners." Also honored during amfAR's fifth annual Inspiration Gala was U.S. cable station HBO and fashion company Calvin Klein.
