Dame Shirley made her appearance at Sir Elton John’s ‘White Tie and Tiara’ ball. She is seen arriving wearing a purple gown. At one point she flashed her nails to show they were the same colour as her gown. She usually attends this annual event which is held at the singer’s home in Windsor.
Dame Shirley has also commented on the sad death of Michael Jackson.
In a statement, Bassey said she was shocked and devastated at the sudden death of the pop icon.
“I have very fond memories of Michael with one dinner in particular where he renamed me Lady Goldfinger. For the rest of the time I knew him that was my name. He was an icon and the King of Pop, quite simply magic.”
