As usual, the White Tie and Tiara Ball attracted a galazy of stars.

These included Shirley Bassey, Claire Danes, Ron Wood, Boris Becker and Hugh Grant.

The ­menu at the EJAF fundraiser featured chicken and chips.

It was a trio of delicate mousses for the starter, then came the chicken and chips which was a bit of a fun ­surprise, said one partygoer.

For dessert, we all had strawberry mousse in a heart-shape with pink champagne jelly.

The latest White Tie gala was an extra special occasion because Elton and his partner had just finished the construction of a ­private art ­gallery in their ­Berkshire abode, concealed by a secret door.

Elton and David Furnish unveiled the space last night.

The Alice In Wonderland-themed gallery was designed by London architect Jack Schneider, the gallery has waterfalls cascading down one wall and copper ­cladding on another. To mark his achievement, Elton gave the party the theme of  ''contemporary art.''

Below is a photo of Elton with Justin Timberlake, who performed, as well as a snapshot of him with another attendee, Lily Allen. More pictures and details appear in Tuesday's OK! magazine.
