Fifty journalists gathered outside the Beckhams' chapel on December 23 to snap pictures of stars, arriving for the christening of Brooklyn and Romeo.

They had plenty to cover: Elton came in a silver Rolls-Royce, and Elizabeth Hurley ignored the ''modest attire'' request by donning a white satin gown. Others in attendance included Sam Taylor-Wood and the former Spice Girls.

The whole affair was 500,000 pounds. It's no wonder, with each couple getting their own butler to dish out each six-course dinner, and flowers alone costing 50,000 pounds.
