LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Elizabeth Taylor is lending her timeless style to a fashion show that raises money and awareness for HIV and AIDS.

The 77-year-old actress says she plans to attend the Macy's Passport fundraiser Thursday in Santa Monica to show support for the event she helped establish 27 years ago.

Though she makes few public appearances, Taylor says she wants to remind people not to become complacent about HIV and AIDS because the virus is "still in the foreground and very much in our consciousness."

The event, which is open to the public, has raised more than $28 million for HIV/AIDS research, treatment and prevention.
