Last week, Tinsletown leading man George Clooney turned up to the premiere of his latest film, Up In The Air, with girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis on one arm and his mother on the other.

This week, the Italian TV presenter beauty got another taste of life on the A-list as she accompanied George to UNICEF's star-studded fundraising gala, the Snowflake Ball.

Elisabetta, who looked lovely in an elegant black dress, mingled with other famous guests - including some of George's closest celebrity friends - at the Beverly Hills event.

Among those in attendance were Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and Matt Damon and his wife Luciana, with whom Elisabetta enjoyed a giggle.

Meanwhile, George took the stage to present the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award, named after the late American actor, to Ocean's 11 producer and philanthropist Jerry Weintraub.

In the charitable spirit of the evening, Ocean's co-stars George, Matt, Brad and Don Cheadle joined their producer in making a $250,000 donation to UNICEF on behalf of the humanitarian organisation that they founded together.

Guests at the black-tie event were also treated to performances by singers Tony Bennett and Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, and an appearance by Jerry's long-time friend, Muhammad Ali, who was later seen chatting to Angelina.
