Elizabeth Hurley's colourful new beach collection can claim a royal seal of approval after being viewed by Prince Albert of Monaco.

Looking stunning in a plunging sky blue Azure dress, the English beauty and her husband, Arun Nayer, led the celebrities at a charity fashion show at the chic principality.

Helping to raise money for Elton John's AIDS foundation, a host of famous faces attended the Grand Prix And Fashion Unite event in Monte Carlo.

Joining the Prince and Elizabeth in the audience were supermodels Naomi Campbell and Jodie Kidd, Take That's Gary Barlow and Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon, fresh from the equally fashionable Cannes.

The celebrity list didn't stop there. Taking time out from their training for Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix, British racing stars Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and David Coulthard showed their skills navigating the catwalk. The drivers strutted their stuff wearing designs by Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone's daughter, Petra.
