They CAN do demure! Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry dress to impress in elegant gowns at Elton John Oscars bash

While a host of glamorous celebrities donned their Sunday best to walk the red carpet at tonight’s Oscars, others opted to watch the event at a viewing party.

And the hottest ticket in town was to Sir Elton John’s bash, which he holds annually in a bid to raise money for his AIDS Foundation.

The starlets in attendance at the event all opted for classic and elegant gowns as they posed on the red carpet before making their way in to the plush party.

Katy Perry led the famous faces at the star-studded event in Los Angeles in a shimmering silver and black sequined dress.

The glittering gown, which had a sheer neck, was the perfect complement for the 27-year-old singer’s blue tresses.

And while Katy Perry was less colourful than usual, Miley Cyrus also shone in silver as she ditched her boho style for a demure dress.

Dita von Teese looked striking in a pale pink floor-length gown with silver embellishment and a plunging neckline.
