The Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party is one of the hottest tickets in showbiz. Started in 1993, the annual party is hosted by superstar musician Elton John and held on the same evening as the Oscars show. Tickets are offered by invitation only and cost upward of $3,500 a pop (bargain!). That’s why you’d expect attendees to be looking their absolute flyest, none of these attendees would dare to do a Jimmy Kimmel and show up in a pair of jeans.

Twilight hunk, sorry, actor Kellan Lutz looked fresh in a simple tux with dark blue detailing. His patent dress shoes were gleaming and Kellan was looking every inch the heart throb.  We love a man in a dapper suit!

Modern Family cast member Sarah Hyland was beautifully turned out in her corseted black A-Line midi dress with white floral pattern. Sarah teamed her dream with a pair of red high heels for a splash of colour. Perhaps she did this to echo the Red Ribbon which is a symbol for AIDS awareness?

Spring Breakers' Vanessa Hudgens seemed to be channeling an Egyptian queen in her metallic gown with snaking bracelets. Vanessa’s accessories were certainly our favourites at the party, including her pointed metallic nails which are totally on trend at the moment.

We love Kelly Osbourne, who doesn’t? She’s one of the sweetest, most easy going celebrities in Hollywood, and of late has been looking more gorgeous than ever. Kelly showed up to the event in a sleek black evening dress with puffed out A-line skirt/tutu with a detailed sheer top and metallic waist belt. She looked stunning in the dress, but we have to admit we’re not huge fans of the Hairspray meets Grease hairstyle. It just seems a little incongruous to the rest of the look. Sorry, Kell!

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ daughter Rumor wore a slinky metallic gown to the after-party (metallics seem to be a theme here!) which perfectly complimented her slender figure. The print reminded us a little of a shiny cow, but we’re not saying that’s a bad thing! Rumor’s hair and accessories also perfectly set off her dress, a beautifully put together ensemble. Bravo!

Ukrainian ballroom dancer Karina Smirnoff looked breathtaking in a nude embellished strapless gown, combined with red lips, nails and classic Hollywood hair. Our one criticism of Karina’s look is her bikini strap lines! Next time you’re headed to the party of the year, take down the straps when you’re sunbathing the day before!

There were too many beautiful gowns and well-dressed gents at this year’s event to recognise each and every one, but more importantly we hope that they managed to raise a fortune for the cause.
