The Oscars is one of the biggest nights on the entertainment calendar and 2014 was no different.

Stars of the screen mixed with fashion icons and musical legends and Hollywood hosted the most exclusive after parties.

Getty Images photographer Jamie McCarthy was on assignment to capture the Elton John Aids Foundation Oscar Party and he shares his favourite image from the night.

"One of my favorite photos of the Oscars 2014 night captures a mixture of musical and fashion legends.

Fashion and music have always gone hand in hand and have been very influential in my life as well.

When Lady Gaga (one of my favorites) arrived at the Elton John Aids Foundation Oscar Party, she bypassed most of the press but due to my working relationship with her, I was able to walk with her and her security over to Sir Elton John's table where he was sitting with his husband David Furnish and fashion icon Donatella Versace.

After they greeted each other, I politely asked to take a photo of the foursome seeing as how they are all legends in my eyes.

The group was more than happy to pose for me and as you can see it turned out to be an amazing moment to have captured."
