Elton John Invited to Elizabeth Taylor Tribute
The actress' son, Christopher Wilding, has invited his mother's closest friends to gather this Sunday at the Warner Bros. lot for a private celebration of Taylor's life.
The event, "Worldwide Tribute To Elizabeth Taylor," will be held at the Steven J. Ross Theatre and will benefit the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
On Thursday, a vast array of Taylor's jewels, gowns and paintings went on display in Los Angeles in advance of a highly publicized Christie's auction in December, that is expected to fetch up to $150 million.
The auction will include Taylor's massive 33-carat rectangular-cut diamond ring she received from two-time-husband, actor Richard Burton.
Taylor died of congestive heart failure in Los Angeles at age 79 in March.
