Despite the majority of Oscar party cancellations in light of the seemingly un-ending (and now ended) WGA strike, Elton John's long-running, star-studded fete was in full swing last night. Many of this year's nominees and winners dropped by, as did others, including Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Courtney Love, Rupert Murdoch, Minnie Driver, Leven Rambin, Lydia Hearst, Tara Reid, Tara Subkoff, Cheryl Tiegs (at left), Faye Dunaway, and even designer Roberto Cavalli, who looked ready to pick a fight. Maybe it's because Sir Elton brings out the crazy in people, but the fashions were much, well, louder at his party than they were at the awards themselves.
