New York Fashion Week kicked off in style last night with the Fashion Rocks concert at Radio City Music Hall.

The yearly event, honoring the relationship between fashion and music, benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Elton was in house to perform with some of today's hottest pop acts. Christina Aguilera paired up with John to sing a rendition of "Benny and the Jets" while Black Eyed Peas performed The Temptations' "Get Ready" with the music icon.

The red carpet was also filled with some interesting couples as well. Richie Sambora and Denise Richards finally showed up somewhere together in public, Carmen Electra looked smokin' hot as she she arrived solo and Kimora Lee Simmons made an appearance with ex Russell.

Beyoncé Knowles, Bon Jovi and The Pussycat Dolls also performed at the concert, which airs tonight on CBS.
