Elizabeth Hurley and Kate Hudson were among the glamorous guests at Sir Elton John's annual Breast Cancer Research Foundation gala in New York City on Wednesday (17Apr13).

The pair walked the fuschia-coloured carpet for the Hot Pink Party at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Manhattan, where British actress/model Hurley acted as the evening's emcee.

Hudson was on hand to present the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award to Kay Krill, who heads retail company Ann Inc., which is renowned for helping fund breast cancer research.

Sir Elton then thrilled revellers by performing some of his classic tracks at the charity bash, which was also attended by Hudson's Muse rocker boyfriend Matt Bellamy.
