At a private party organised by Elton John last night, the mother of one showed off her figure in a stunning Alberta Ferretti silk dress with a plunging neckline, alongside an A-list guest list of glamorous stars. Liz Hurley was accompanied by designer Patrick Cox at the event, held in honour of publisher Alexander Lebedev in London. And even when she tried to keep slightly warm in a fur waistcoat, her cleavage was still on full display.

Last month, Miss Hurley told how she maintains her figure by skipping breakfast. She apparently starts her day with hot water and an occasional espresso, but despite the unusual diet, no one could argue the fact that Liz is looking fabulous.Following behind the mother-of-one was the star studded guest list from Sadie Frost and Sophie Dahl, to David Walliams and his model wife Lara Stone, to Elton John and David Furnish.Newlyweds Walliams and Stone had even colour coordinated their outfits by both arriving in black and white ensembles.

Fellow model Natalia Vodianova followed Liz’s controversial fashion statement by holding onto a little fur coat, which was accompanying her long black one-shouldered gown.

And Bond girl Rosamund Pike continued to bring glamour to the Royal Courts of Justice in a little black dress.But Harry Potter author JK Rowling and her husband Neil Murray added a bit of magic to the night by sporting a blue and green kilt and silver lace dress.

Mayor Boris Johnson didn’t quite look the part at the soirée though, when he turned up on his bicycle wearing his backpack and helmet.

Luckily once he jumped off his bike, he revealed a sharp suit, as did Sir Ian McKellen, who received a welcome kiss on the cheek from Ruby Wax.
