The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was a dazzling spectacle of light, the effect heightened by 1.7 million SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS glittering on the 15 suits and 22 shirts made by bespoke tailor Richard James. And, of course, there were 24 pairs of trademark glasses encrusted with crystals. “I met with the people who did the stage and lighting, and they wanted Elton to sparkle,” said James. “ Well, Swarovski and sparkly certainly go together, don’t they?”
