Some of the most handsome men in the world gathered up in London last night for the annual GQ Men of the Year Awards. Top honorees included designer Tom Ford, who was given his spiffy trophy by none other than pal Justin Timberlake; Emma Watson, who showed off her midriff while chatting with Tom Hiddleston; and Dan Stevens, who had a mini Downton Abbey reunion with former costar Laura Carmichael (aka Lady Edith) while chatting with friend Eddie Redmayne and his girlfriend, Hannah Bagshawe. Meanwhile, Justin's buddy Pharrell Williams played the social butterfly while mingling between Russell Brand, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley, and Elton John. The bash wasn't a good night for plus ones as Justin's wife, Jessica Biel, stayed home and Suki Waterhouse took a solo trip down the red carpet without her handsome man, Bradley Cooper.
Kate Hudson wore Ann Taylor and brought Matthew Bellamy with her to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual Hot Pink Party in NYC last night. The couple was joined at the charity bash by a Blumarine-wearing Elizabeth Hurley and Elton John, as well as fashion designers Michael Kors, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan. Kate was doing more than just walking the pink carpet; she also presented an award to Kay Krill, the CEO of ANN Inc., the parent company for Ann Taylor, where Kate serves as a brand ambassador.
Kate has been keeping busy in the Big Apple. She is currently promoting her new film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival next week. Despite Kate's work duties, she and Matthew did manage to squeeze in time with their boys in the city ahead of their gala date.
Stars were feeling the love at Elton John's annual Oscar viewing party in LA tonight. Miley Cyrus looked sexy in a backless Emilio Pucci as she posed with friend Kelly Osbourne. Miley's been getting in on the Oscars action over the weekend, kicking off the festivities at photographer Mario Testino's pre-Oscar party in LA last night. Kim Kardashian was another star to attend both Mario's gallery opening and Elton's annual party. She shared her excitement over on Twitter, saying, "I love Oscar Sunday! I can't wait to see what everyone wears!"
Elton's viewing party also brought out Heidi Klum, who reunited with pal Naomi Campbell for the fundraiser, which benefits Elton's AIDS Foundation. Elton and David Furnish even brought one of their adorable sons to join in on their festivities.
Plenty more action went down at the star-studded party — click through the rest of the fun pics to see who else attended!
Today, commoners, Queen Elizabeth, and pop royalty gathered at Buckingham Palace for the BBC's Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the monarch's 60 years on the throne. Unfortunately, in the midst of her Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend, the queen is dealing with some trying circumstances, as her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was rushed to the hospital today with a bladder infection. Locals told BBC they feel for the royal couple, especially since Prince Philip will no longer be able to attend the rest of the Central Weekend events that include today's concert and tomorrow's service and carriage ride.
But the show must go on, and the queen still attended the Diamond Jubilee concert today (with earplugs in!) along with young royals Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, Zara Phillips, and Princess Beatrice. The star-studded event kicked off at 7:30 p.m. London time, and the public and royal family members alike — 12,000 people in total — jammed to music by Elton John, will.i.am, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, and more on a stage built around the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace. Before the firework celebration ended the evening, Prince Charles introduced his "mummy," as he called her, and gave a touching speech in her honor. See the concert festivities now!
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan stole the show at last night's concert for the Rainforest Fund, held inside NYC's Carnegie Hall. The hot couple took the stage for a dance routine, with Jenna looking hot in a red wrap dress and Channing dapper in a porkpie hat. They shared the stage with singing legends like Elton John, Sting, Jennifer Hudson, and James Taylor. There was another special duet in store for Channing — Channing and Elton gyrated together for a rendition of "Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend."
Meryl Streep also lent her voice to the show, teaming up with Sting and Elton for The Wizard of Oz's "If I Only Had a Brain." President Bill Clinton even emerged to say a few words. The Rainforest concert is an annual event organized by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Sting and Trudie led the celebrity guests to an afterparty at the Pierre Hotel that featured an auction, where someone paid $26,000 to have Tom Hanks record their voice mail message.
Stars partied the night away inside Elton John's Academy Awards viewing party at West Hollywood Park yesterday. Gwen Stefani mingled with the evening's host Elton and his husband David Furnish, who brought their son Zachary to check out the fun for the first time. Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer cozied up between performances by Foster the People, while Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osbourne shared a laugh on the dance floor. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder got in on the charitable action when they auctioned off a vampire bite that fetched $80,000 from the crowd. Katy Perry bid $50,000 on cooking lessons but lost to producer Steve Tisch, though the duo apparently decided to spend $100,000 and split the prize. Models Heidi Klum and Bar Refaeli snapped pictures for Twitter before Bar and Brooklyn Decker switched venues and popped up at Vanity Fair's Oscar bash at Sunset Tower. There were plenty more parties around town, including George Clooney's own event at Craig's that was attended by Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Emily Blunt, and John Krasinski.
Elton John's annual Oscar party benefiting his AIDS Foundation was a hit in LA last night. The event, which was held at West Hollywood Park, was one of many fetes around town, but still drew plenty of big names. Alessandra Ambrosio showed off her baby bump in a Roberto Cavalli gown while fellow models Bar Refaeli and Brooklyn Decker followed the metallic trend in looks by Cavalli and Valentino, respectively. Miley Cyrus arrived in a glamorous Roberto Cavalli number as well with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, and Vanessa Hudgens chose a strapless dress from Georges Chakra Couture.
Gwen Stefani arrived in a lacy Zuhair Murad mini with her band No Doubt and headed inside to mingle with friends. Kim Kardashian, in Alaïa, made it a family affair alongside sister Kourtney, and The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev wore black J. Mendel on the arm of boyfriend and costar Ian Somerhalder. Malin Akerman and Anna Paquin mixed things up in embellished looks from Sportmax and Pucci. Anna was joined by husband Stephen Moyer for the exciting night.
Ashley Tisdale brought a pop of color in a bright red Maria Lucia Hohan and chatted with pal Vanessa during the bash, while Heidi Klum showed lots of leg in a yellow backless Atelier Versace. Katy Perry accented her blue locks with a sparkling Blumarine gown and Kelly Osbourne changed into a sweet Georges Hobeika Couture after working the Oscars red carpet.
There was even more fun fashion at Elton John's Oscar afterparty, so make sure to check it out!
Among the more famous guests at the royal wedding were none other than Elton John and David Furnish. Both men looked regal with their gray pants and coattails, but it was Elton who added some pizzazz with a flash of pastel. Overall the outfits were on the conservative side — especially for Elton — but it is the royal wedding afterall. What do you think of the duo's look? Is it perfect for the occasion, or were you expecting more?
Elton John and his partner, David Furnish, arrived at Westminster Abbey for the royal wedding in London today. They joined other special guests David and Victoria Beckham, Joss Stone, and Chelsy Davy in taking their seats inside the church. The invitees are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Prince William, who will wear an Irish Guards Mounted Officer's uniform, and minutes later his bride, Kate Middleton. Elton and David are some of the lucky attendees who will witness William and Kate's nuptials take place in just an hour.
The celebrity outpouring of love for Elizabeth Taylor is remarkable in the wake of her death this morning. One lasting part of her legacy is the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, and work for the cause earned a good friend in Elton John. The two have been close for two decades, and Elton released a statement to CNN, "We have just lost a Hollywood giant; more importantly, we have lost an incredible human being." Elton and Liz had tons of good times together from when she took the stage during his shows to when they sat and laughed at his annual Oscar parties. Check out these sweet photos of Elton and Elizabeth.
