Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum, Miley Cyrus and Simon Cowell were among the celebrity guest who stepped out for Elton John's 18th annual AIDS Foundation Oscar party on Sunday night, but one guest was more special than the others – Betty White.
"Betty White is my Guest of Honor," Elton told Access Hollywood before his big event held in West Hollywood. "I want to meet a legend and she is a legend!"
And the Brit even had a special place at his party for the Hollywood superstar.
"She's sitting on my right hand side," he sad. "I'm so thrilled that she's coming."
Elton explained the two had already bonded pre-party, via phone, over their shared love of canines.
"We communicate because she has a charity for dogs and I love dogs, so I made a contribution to her charity and thought, you know what, instead of just writing letters, I want to meet you, so I invited her to this," he explained.
And photos from inside the bash showed the two sharing close moments. Elton, in blue glasses, hugged and kissed Betty who was in a dress in a similar blue shade.
