Stars step out for White Tie Ball

Uma Thurman, Samantha Barks and Elizabeth Hurley were among the stars who glammed up for Sir Elton John and David Furnish's annual White Tie And Tiara Ball.

While Uma played it safe in a black floor-length gown, Les Miserables actress Samantha turned heads in a plunging cream silk dress as she posed with model boyfriend David Gandy, reported the Daily Mail.

Elizabeth - who was joined by shoe designer Patrick Cox - picked a berry-coloured one-shouldered gown with a daring side split for the star-studded party, at Sir Elton's Old Windsor home, which was in aid of the Elton John Aids Foundation in association with Chopard.

The model tweeted before: "On the way! 15th year of the White Tie ball. With Patrick Cox. @ejaf #loveisinmyblood."

She later wrote: "What a treat- Coldplay. Performing for 400 people #insanelyspoilt. Great evening. Elton and Chris Martin dueted Your Song."

Other stars who attended the glitzy bash included Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams, Natalie Imbruglia, Jerry Hall, Freida Pinto, Jimmy Carr and Matthew Morrison, whose engagement to fellow singer Renee Puente was announced by hosts Sir Elton and David.

Both Sir Elton and Coldplay frontman Chris reportedly serenaded the newly engaged couple with a rendition of Your Song following the news.
