While Jennifer Hudson and Adele were performing at the Oscars, other starlets were enjoying the evening at Sir Elton John’s West Hollywood shindig. He hosted his 21st annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party where Nicki Minaj and soon-to-be mother Kim Kardashian snuggled up close and snapped some shots as they celebrated the night.
(Via Rap-Up) Minaj, spokesperson for the 2012 MAC Viva Glam campaign, sported her new lavender lipstick to the party, tweeting about the event, "Hanging w/ my @MACcosmetics crew @ejaforg. If you support #VIVAGLAM then you support amazing causes like this one. Time to pick up #NICKI2”. Just as in the Viva Glam campaign, this lipstick’s proceeds will also be going towards the MAC Aids fund.
While Minaj was promoting her lipstick, Kim Kardashian, who wore a white gown accenting her baby bump, stood close to her sisters throughout the evening, but took some time to snap pictures with Nicki. There was no sign of, Kanye, however as he was busy in London mouthing off about Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake and corporations.
Elton John's guestlist also included Chris Brown, Randy Jackson, Heidi Klum, Emeli Sandé, Steven Tyler, Jim Carey, Naomi Campbell and much more.
