Sir Elton John donned a typically glitzy suit on Sunday night as he attended the Evening Standard Theatre Awards at Claridge’s Hotel with his husband David Furnish.
The music legend, 76, wore a statement black suit with two giant sequinned dogs embroidered on the breast of the jacket.
Sir Elton looked his best as he picked up the Editor’s Award for bringing a collaborative spirit to musical theatre.
He was supported by husband David, 61, who looked more low-key in a black dinner suit as he placed a supportive hand on the Rocket Man’s shoulders.
The singer added a signature pair of luminous orange glasses and accessorised with gold jewellery.
