Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne party at their pal Elton John's fundraising Winter Ball

11 NOVEMBER 2012

Firm friends Elizabeth Hurley, Shane Warne and David Furnish came together on Saturday night for Elton John's AIDS foundation Grey Goose Winter Ball. The group were reunited having recently celebrated David's 50th birthday together in LA back in October.

In a bronze dress, decorated with a combination leopard print and sequins, Elizabeth looked every inch the glamorous guest. As did her cricketer fiancé, Shane Warne, 43, who arrived at the ball in a dapper black dinner jacket.

American Beauty star Kevin Spacey hosted the event, which was held at Battersea Power Station. The 53-year-old actor entertained his audience first by donning an oversized pair of blue heart-shaped sunglasses and then with imperssions of former Presient Bill Clinton and actor Morgan Freeman. Kevin joked "the only problem with Morgan Freeman hosting this event is that it would roll on for three hours as everything he says is like poetry. He could read the instructions of a flat pack and make it sound like poetry."

Chat show host Graham Norton and his partner Trevor Patterson showed off their mutual fashion sense as they arrived, with Irish-born Graham wearing a black beaded jacket and Trevor sporting a bright floral bow tie and had a paisley handkerchief tucked in his breast pocket.

Musician of the moment, Emeli Sande, who won three MOBO awards last Sunday, was also spotted enjoying a bright blue cocktail at the annual bash. Whilst heiress and socialite Tamara Ecclestone, singer Eliza Doolittle and JLS star Aston Merrygold were also on the guest list.

Upon her arrival Tamara, who is the daughter of Formula 1 tycoon Bernie Ecclestone, turned heads in a striking, white, floor-length gown. And she attracted more attention during the evening's auction when she purchased an exclusive piece of Karun Kirac jewellery for £100,000 but then charitably donated it back to be resold. On its second sale, the piece was bought for £22,000 adding to the total fund which will go towards the Elton John Aids Foundation.
