From Russia with love: Mr Gobachev's kiss for Sharon

Thursday March 31, 2011

He is said to have "changed the world" and has even won a Nobel Peace Prize.

But even Mikhail Gorbachev is not immune to the charms of A-list beauties, and he looked delighted at the chance to plant a kiss on Sharon Stone.

The screen siren was co-host of the glitzy charity gala in honour of the last Soviet leader's 80th birthday at Wembley Hall, along with Kevin Spacey.

And black-tie was the theme of the night, showbiz beauties such as Katherine Jenkins and Goldie Hawn dressed to the nines in designer gowns.

Fifty-three-year-old Sharon was radiant in a blush pink floor-length Christian Dior gown.

Meanwhile, Welsh singer Katherine looked stunning in a body-con lavender dress.

The A-list affair raised millions of pounds for charities including the Raisa Foundation, named in honour of the elder statesman's late wife, who died in 1999.
