The White Ties That Bind

by | 9th, July 2003

‘WE just got an invitation through the mail. So we’re puttin’ on our top hat, tyin’ up our white ties, brushin’ off our tails.

‘Isn’t it funny…’

Oh, Elton John’s white tie and tiara ball will be such a hoot. There’ll be music, Ritz crackers with those delightful black fish egg paste on top and everyone will be there.

You don’t believe us? Well, take a look at OK!, which spots the myriad of faces – some famous; some soon to be – that went up to Elton and David Furnish’s house for some dancin’ in their tails.

Rather than give you a list of who was there, we ask you to take out your Anorak celebrity phone book and just tick off who was not.

No sign of Dale Winton. Cilla Black, Nell McAndrew, Jessie Wallace, One True Voice, Claire Sweeney, Anthea Turner and Vanessa Feltz were all not there.

No, that’s not Cilla, that ginger vision is Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess with the muchness.

Everyone else was there, including Naomi Campbell’s mum Valerie, Coronation Street’s Helen Worth, Stephen Gately and friend Andrew Cowles, Nick Faldo and Lulu.

For added glitter to go with all that stardust, the Beckhams parachuted in from 30,000 feet to say they were there.

But something went awry in the translation into Day-vid’s now native Spanish, and he turned up in a silver suit while she wore a full-length corset designed for someone more full length than she is.

But since you were all there, we won’t, as OK! does, bore you with the details.
