David, meanwhile, was dapper in a black tuxedo and bow tie as he rubbed shoulders with the beauties and later was honoured with the Huminatarian Leadership Award.

The privilege came after the sports hero came up with the plan to play seven football matches on seven continents, travelling from a mountain village in Asia to the frozen wastes of Antarctica.

Writing on Instagram, the former footballer wrote that he was "extremely honoured" to receive the award, and that he "can't wait to continue doing all I can for Unicef and my 7 Fund, 7.org, to help children across the world."

Labyrinth actress Jennifer Connelly also stepped out for the occasion, making her first public appearance since her co-star from the famous fantasy Eighties film David Bowie passed away following his 18-month battle with cancer.

While she seemed in good spirits on the red carpet, the actress shared her sadness at the loss of her friend in a statement to Entertainment Weekly on Monday.

"I met David Bowie when I was 14 and he became a hero to me — because he was an artist, and because he was a genius who had the time to be kind," she said.

"I'd never met such an extraordinary artist before, and I haven’t since — the world will be a greyer place without him. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones."
