Elton John and David Furnish held their 11th annual White Tie & Tiara Ball in association with Swiss jeweler Chopard at their Old Windsor mansion on 25th June.
This year, Elton's garden was transformed into an open-air art gallery for the event. Guests were invited to wander around and admire works of art on special loan from the biggest London galleries. Elton John also debuted his new collection of watches, the product of his work with Chopard. The timepieces, which reflect Elton's notoriously perfectionnist character, will also raise money for his AIDS charity, with a percentage of sales going to the EJAF.
A sumptuous dinner, charity auction and performance by Justin Timberlake followed, after which the guests danced through the night until breakfast was served. Revelers included singers Lily Allen, Natalie Imbruglia and Louise Redknapp, actress Claire Danes and fiancé Hugh Dancy, models Lily Cole, Erin O'Connor and Rachael Barrett. They were given spectacular pieces of Chopard jewelry to wear for the event.
