Julie, Geena and Ellen adopt classic chic for benefit

As glamorous stars they are used to working the red carpet in myriad colourful creations, but Julie Andrews and Geena Davies also know how to deliver a more sombre, but equally chic, look when the occasion calls for it.

The LA-based Sound Of Music star was the height of elegance on Thursday in top-to-toe black for a fundraiser at the Ronald Reagan medical center in southern California. Julie opted for tailored trousers and a black satin jacket with just a hint of Tinseltown glitz in the diamante detail of her belt buckle.

The Surrey-born singer is likely to choose an altogether more flamboyant outfit early next year when she receives a lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild.

Julie wasn't the only woman taking a monochrome approach at the charity bash. Six-foot Stuart Little actress Geena also plumped for black, accessorising her elegant ruffle shirt and trouser ensemble with a simple strand of pearls.

Ellen Pompeo, 36, whose sultry performance as Grey's Anatomy medic Meredith has set UK screens alight, took the same route. The Massachusetts-born beauty opted for a black wrap dress with matching shoes and clutch. Desperate Housewives' Nicolette Sheridan and James Denton's wife Ellen were also converts to the dark side for the day.
