Hollywood has said its final farewell to Zsa Zsa Gabor at the actress and socialite's funeral.

Gabor died at the age of 99, after suffering a heart attack at her home in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, on December 18.

An intimate memorial service was held at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills yesterday, hosted by her widower Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.

An urn containing Gabor's ashes was taken into the church in a Louis Vuitton bag and placed next to a photograph of the Hungarian-born star, with the words "farewell my love".

Gabor's ninth husband, von Anhalt (73) paid tribute to his late wife and said his life was "empty" without her.

"She left peacefully. It was beautiful the way she passed," he said.

"She was a good woman. She helped people, especially the homeless. She loved the red carpet. Her life was red carpet or nothing.

"Keep her in your heart the way she was in Hollywood."

After the service, von Anhalt said Gabor would be laid to rest in Hungary next to her late father.
