Charles and Camilla host a conservation charity ball at Clarence House

Sparkly masks in hand, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall led the festivities at a conservation charity ball tonight. The royal couple appeared in excellent spirits as they hosted actors, designers, models and society beauties at the annual event, which supports the Elephant Family charity founded by the duchess's brother Mark Shand.The night kicked off with a reception in the opulent rooms of Clarence House before moving onto a formal meal at nearby Lancaster House. There was also an opportunity for guests to pose with huge elephant sculptures in the grounds outside. In keeping with the animal masquerade theme, Charles, 70, and Camilla, 71, donned black panther masks and gamely held them up to their faces as they mingled. Other guests donned exquisite headpieces shaped like elephants, butterflies and leopards, while Alexa Chung, Douglas Booth and Yasmin Le Bon all stepped out as butterflies.Styles ranged from designer Emilia Wickstead's sophisticated peacock, to Tracey Emin's low-key leopard and Donna Summer's extravagant tiger creation.  Scroll down for video Sparkle like Donna wearing Needle and ThreadKnowing what to wear for a really special occasion can be difficult: How dressy do you go?
