LONDON - Stars from the world of pop, fashion and sport danced into the wee hours Thursday at a lavish party to celebrate the "civil partnership" union between British pop musician Sir Elton John and filmmaker David Furnish.

Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, Victoria Beckham, Joan Collins, German model Claudia Schiffer and former German tennis champion Boris Becker were among the 700 guests at Sir Elton's mansion near Windsor, southwest of London.

English cricket captain Michael Vaughn and singer James Blunt were also there.

Sir Elton, aged 58, and the Canadian filmmaker, who have lived together for 12 years, were one of the first of 700 gay and lesbian couples who tied the knot across England and Wales on Wednesday, in accordance with a new law allowing "civil partnerships" between same- sex couples.
