Bette, 67, looked remarkably well preserved in a colourful red and blue silk blouse, white three-quarter length trousers and brown shoes.Not to be outshone, the 56-year-old former Today host also looked in fine figure in a long red skirt and black top.But they were far from the only big names turning out for the thrilling philanthropic event.For Broadway legend Bernadette Peters, 65, also turned out, and flaunted her fabulous figure in a sheer black vest, cardigan and trousers.

Bette started the project after being shocked at what had happened to the city where her career was born when she returned in 1995.She said: 'People were throwing their garbage out the window, leaving their lunches on the ground -- I was so upset I didn't sleep for a week.'Finally, I realized I needed to actually do something -- even if it meant picking up trash with my own two hands.'
