Leonard Lauder was honoured at the annual Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) gala on Thursday – a poignant moment for the beauty legend, especially since his late wife Evelyn founded the yearly event. Lauder was seranaded at the chic dinner by Sir Elton John, who sang: "If he were in England, he would have the sword. He would be Sir Leonard by now," finishing the touching song with a salute: "Leonard Lauder, the greatest man I know." 

Designers Vera Wang, Donna Karan and Zac Posen were joined by Elizabeth Hurley, Tony Bennett (who also performed during the proceedings) and Aerin Lauder – who all turned out for the charitable affair, which raised almost $7 million for breast cancer research.
