18th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party

March 8th, 2010 // 2 Comments

Every year Elton John and David Furnish‘s Oscar viewing party fundraiser is always a big hit with the big names but John still gets nervous. “It’s something we look forward to but we’re also a bit wary of as it’s your baby and you want it to go well,” he told The Mirror. Of course he wasn’t disappointed by the turn out for the event saying of the night, “I’m so blown away this year, it’s fantastic.” And besides all the money raised for the AIDs foundation, the fashion was fantastic as well.

The Men

So an all plaid suit and vest look a lot like pajamas, but I think Alan Cumming wears this well with some circled spectacles and his favorite peace sign.  Or maybe I’m just bored with seeing one safe tux after another. Chace Crawford‘s basic suits is not boring actually, maybe it’s the slicked back hair and little bit of scruff, and I can’t be that bored, because Perez Hilton‘s orange clown pants do not amuse me.

The Women

Part of me really isn’t ready to talk about Tinsely Mortimer until her show debuts and I decide she’s worth it, but I do love her empire waist dress with silver bodice and flowing pink chiffon. Fashion trumps personality. Lea Michele, I love you superficially for your fashion and the personality I imagine you have. Stunning. She posed with a lovely Christian Hendricks who went big on top and bottom last night. Lydia Hearst’s unique 40s inspired ensemble is my favorite of the night,while you can always count on Katie Price for making sparkles rue the day they were invented.

The Couples!?!

Unfortunately I have to admit that my beloved Jason Mraz looks homeless, but he looks like one of the loveliest homeless people in the world.  He showed up on the red carpet with his ex-wife, make-up artist Sheridan Edley Mraz. Are they back together?

The rumor mill really caught fire when Jamie Foxx and Stacey Dash showed up together at the Oscar red carpet and then came to Elton John’s party and posed as a pair. Dash has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband Emmanuel Xuereb.  This will be her third divorce.

There’s more fashion for you to dissect in the gallery and check out all of our 2010 Academy Awards coverage here!

    We need HIV/AIDS education. It’s very important!! CDC has granted CSU $1.9M for HIV/AIDS education.
    The number of members on the largest HIV dating&support site == Positivefish.com (if I spell the site correctly) has reached 500,000 members
    OMG! Why so many guys and girls on the site are very sexy? Why so many people are infected by HIV? There is no
    doubt that we need SEX-ED

    To supportive organizations:
    S.S.W.C. (Showing Someone We Care) is an organization founded by John H. Burton. This organization was created to help build a foundation for people who are living with health issues. The primary health issues addressed is the rise of HIV/AIDS amongst the African-American, Hispanic, and Caucasian population. Through research in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, it has been reported that the number of youth who are infected with HIV/AIDS has increased significantly.
    One of the actions taken to help victims of HIV/AIDS includes organizing The Vessel. The Vessel is a mini-series about two teenagers who experience a troubling ordeal in an inner city community. Nicole Shaw, a young minister who has great vision falls in love with a guy named Darnel Hollings–who falls prey to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Hollings decides to keep his health status a secret when his bad news is quickly surfaced. A neighborhood drug dealer-Da’shawn, extorts Darnel for money because of a rumor, that Darnel has infected his sister with the Virus. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Nicole and Darnel are miraculously healed and Dashsawn–delivered. The message involved with this shattering film correlates with the real life problem of the disease, as well as the lack of information that individual’s seek in finding out his/her status. Each episode has a running time of approximately thirty minutes, aside from a thirty minute documentary.
    Through this moving film series, we hope to receive support on our vision because of the compelling need with this health issue. In order for our organization to film the series, and provide support for victims of HIV/AIDS we are soliciting your help in funding for our series as well as the donating of camera equipment, laptops, office equipment and transportation. If there is any way that your company or yourself can aid our organization in getting the necessary funds and/or assist in contacting the correct people that may be available to film and produce the series please feel free to contact myself with further details.
    Thank you in advance for your time,
    John H. Burton
