Lily Allen lands dream job: designing a fully stocked bar for Elton John

Lily allen booze Rare is the girl who gets it all, but Lily Allen may have achieved personal nirvana last night across the pond. The songstress got to design a musical bar, packed to the gills in premium vodka, at Grey Goose's Character & Cocktails gala hosted by Elton John.

Allen is open about her affinity for booze (thus, we're open about our love of Lily Allen), so who better to recruit for such a top shelf project?

Lily's creation consisted of four travel cases (just like the ones she uses on the road), that serve as full standing Goose bar, coffee table loaded with media such as a record player, and two lush hunter benches.

The installation, titled "Lil Box of Tracks," fetched $160,000 in an auction benefiting Sir Elton's AIDS charity.

Check out a shot of the bar, and more pics of attendees such as Kevin Spacey, Elizabeth Hurley and Kelly Rowland after the jump!
