STAR-STUDDED SOIRÉE: Elton John’s Annual Oscar Party

Elton John—singer, pianist, composer, and philanthropist—threw his annual Oscar viewing party in West Hollywood on March 12, 2023. This is the 31st year he has held this event, one of the most prestigious parties surrounding the Oscars.

Scores of fans surrounded the venue in hopes of catching a glimpse of celebrities attending this gala, which aims to raise funds for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.





The event, hosted by Elton and his husband David Furnish, featured a long carpet that was actually red, unlike this year’s Academy Awards champagne-colored carpet. The evening’s special guests were Eric McCormack and Michaela Jae Rodriguez. Donatella Versace, Tim Allen, Patricia Arquette, Heidi Klum, Hilary Duff, Christina Hendricks, Brooke Shields, Emma Watson, Christina Hendricks, Chris Pine, Caitlyn Jenner, Kesha, Tyga, Sharon Osbourne, Sophia Bush, Julianne Hough, and Tiffany Haddish were present, as was Heart Of Hollywood Magazine CEO Giovanna Salas.

The décor could only be described as lavish. Guests enjoyed a gourmet dinner under an opulent tent as the Academy Awards were livestreamed.


After the Oscars, there was a live auction led by Lydia Fenet with plenty of spirited bidding, as well as music by DJ Johnny Dynell. Excitingly, there was also a performance by upcoming superstar Rina Sawayama, a genre-defying Japanese-British singer.

Later in the evening, the event became one big dance party. Nearly all of the attendees, most of whom were very attractive and stunningly dressed, hit the dance floor while additional desserts were passed around.
