Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and actor Kevin Spacey were looking especially dapper as they left the Grey Goose Winter Ball in London on Nov. 10.
Clinton wore a dark brown suit with a gold and brown tie, while Spacey wore a patterned gray suit with matching gray hat and gray tie. Check out photographs of the debonair duo at the Daily Mail.
The two attended the star-studded ball that benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Other big names in attendance included Giles Deacon, David Furnish, Elizabeth Hurley, Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay, Labrinth, Emeli Sande, Shane Warne, and members of JLS.
Spacey served as the event’s host. He reportedly elicited lots of laughs with his impression of Clinton.
“I just wanna say I am the right person to understand this cause. I’ve been to Africa, and I know how to party. Before I became [Barack] Obama’s explainer in chief,” Spacey said, supposedly in a Southern drawl.
Clinton is said to have taken the joke light heartedly. “I don't suppose there's any public figure that's ever been subject to any more violent personal attacks than I have,” he said.
In its sixth year, the event’s theme was the 1950s-era Cote D’Azur, Look to the Stars reported.
“Guests arriving at London’s iconic landmark, Battersea Power Station, were transported from a chilly London evening to a scene reminiscent of the Riviera in its heyday, where poolside glamour, palm trees, and pastel color schemes abound,” the website detailed.
Guests dined on “world-class cuisine” by Helene Darroze and drank cocktails in line with the event's theme. An auction included lots by Gareth Pugh, Ellen von Unwerth, and Karim Rashid. Labrinth and Emeli Sande also performed live.
