Jack Nicholson, Eva Mendes and Anjelica Huston were among the stars who turned out to mark the 82nd birthday of late screen legend Dame Elizabeth Taylor on Thursday (27Feb14).

A dinner, organised in collaboration with the star's Aids foundation, was held at the Violet Grey's Melrose Place store in Los Angeles, which was named after Taylor's distinctive eyes.

Nicholson sat with Mendes at the event, while other guests included Pharrell Williams, supermodel Chanel Iman, Alice Eve and Paramount Pictures boss Brad Grey.

Renowned chef Pascal Tingaud was jetted in from France to oversee the menu.

Taylor, born on 27 February 1932, passed away in 2011 aged 79 after a lengthy battle with ill health.
