Anderson Cooper Hosts Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Event

At the 8th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation event, entitled, An Enduring Vision, CNN correspondent, Anderson Cooper, played host. The event was attended by a swarm of Elton’s highest profile buddies, including Sharon Stone, who was recognized for her longtime fundraising efforts in the fight to find a cure for AIDS. Never one to be accused of being a wallflower, Sharon strolled the red carpet looking like Carmen Sandiego in a black leather trench, hat and sheer skirt.

Soap star, Susan Lucci, showed off her petite frame in a bright purple dress. She told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s a cause that’s so worthwhile. So many of us in the entertainment industry know so many people who this will touch.”

Courtney Love was dressed in a simple, black gown with a plunging neckline, looking suspiciously appropriate and put-together. Could things be looking up for the troubled rocker? God, let’s hope so.
