Suits worn by Elton John are displayed during the Private View for the Tommy Nutter 'Rebel On The Row' exhibition, displaying the work of British tailor Tommy Nutter, best known for his fashion success in the 1960s, at The Fashion and Textile Museum on May 19, 2011 in London, England.

The preceding photo shows outfits the late Tommy Nutter designed for Elton--now on view at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London.

As mentioned by this Web site, Cilla Black, who helped finance Tommy's Savile Row shop, opened the show last night.

Zandra Rhodes and Ringo Starr were among the others who attended the Rebel on The Row preview.

Meanwhile, Elton (seen below, on screen at the event) dedicated an AIDS benefit dinner to friend and supporter Elizabeth Taylor.

The actress, who died in March, founded the amFAR HIV and AIDS foundation and Elton said she would remain the charity events guiding star.

The amFAR dinner, which was held last night in Cannes and included an auction, attracted names such as Ivana Trump, Sean Penn, Kanye West and Karl Lagerfeld.
