Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, took eldest daughter Princess Beatrice to Sir Elton John's White Tie and Tiara ball Thursday night. The 'Candle in the Wind' singer gave his annual charity ball a Las Vegas theme this year with dozen's of Elvis look-alikes entertaining the celebrity guests at his Windsor mansion.
Sarah Ferguson wore a lavish Chopard choker to match her sparkling white evening gown, while the 18-year-old princess wore a black boho-style evening dress.
Arriving guests walked down a hot pink carpet to the garden which was decorated with original stage inflatables from Elton's Red Piano Las Vegas show and ice sculptures in the design of hotels from the Las Vegas strip.
These were draped in Chopard High Jewelry, which sponsors the event. Stars - including supermodel Elle Macpherson, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and actors Sir Michael Caine and Dame Judi Dench - dined on Surf'n'Turf and Knickerbocker Glory ice-creams in a go-go girl filled Chapel of Love.
Elton serenaded the crowd with a selection of his greatest hits, while Welsh singers Dame Shirley Bassey and Sir Tom Jones also performed. It was the ninth annual White Tie and Tiara ball which raises money for the Elton John AIDS foundation.
Tickets cost $5,990 each and a charity auction was held on the night. Last year, tickets cost $1,997 and the event raised $9.2 million for the charity.
