Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Uma Thurman were just some of the stars who attended the UNICEF Snowflake Ball, with Gomez in particular looking keen to put reports of her and Justin BIeber breaking up and then perhaps getting back together on the back burner for the evening. Perry looked stunning, as did TV actress Allison Williams, but Gomez stole much of the limelight, putting on a smiley face as she donned sparkly black number and chatted freely with the room at 42nd Street.
Indeed Gomez and Perry had a good chat with one another, Perry clearly a fan of the 20 year-old's dress and Gomez herself definitely a fan of Perry as well. Justin Bieber wasn't in attendance, thankfully, though a host of stars were, including Uma Thurman, The Today Show's Bryant Gumbel and Matt Lauer, Brokeback Mountain and The Open Road's Kate Mara, All My Children's Kelly Ripa, and Tea Leoni. It wasn't just actors in attendance either, with legendary singers Tony Bennett and Harry Belafonte also turning up.
This was the 8th annual edition of the UNICEF ball, held in order raise funds and awareness for children struggling in life the world over. It's part of a busy festive season in New York for the celebs, with many more black tie events on the horizon over the next few weeks.
