Jamie Hince with Kate Moss on her birthday

Jamie Hince and Kate Moss make their way to the model's party


Kate Moss saw in her 40th birthday in serious style last night, as she hit London with a gaggle of her famous friends.

Wearing her trademark leopard-print coat, a black satin mini-dress, patent heeled brogues, and carrying a baby pink Chanel clutch, Kate and her husband Jamie Hince left their Highgate home to head to the exclusive 34 Restaurant in Mayfair.

Shunning the low-key birthdays that she's had in recent years, Kate Moss made sure her 40th won't be one to forget.

Her longtime pal and fellow supermodel, Naomi Campbell, arrived at the restaurant in an all black ensemble and, of course, a pair of giant black shades.

The guests all arrived clutching presents for the birthday girl, but none were likely to compare to Philip Green's generous gift. To mark Kate's birthday, the Topshop boss bought her a… vintage car. Well, what do you buy the girl that has everything?

Mario Testino, John Galliano, Jo Wood, Annabelle Nielson and Sadie Frost were also all in attendance at the star-studded bash.

After Kate and her friends had had their fill at the restaurant, they all made their way to the Dorchester hotel, where they were said to have partied until the early hours.

But if you're thinking a meal in a restaurnat and drinks in a hotel still sounds a bit tame, that's not the only way Kate celebrated her 40th. It's thought that the Croydon-born supermodel flew to Richard Branson's Caribbean island, Necker, earlier this week. The entrepreneur is said to have given his £280,000-a-week private island to Kate as a present. But just for the week, of course.

Sadie Frost took to her Instagram account to share photos of her, Kate and their friend, Fran Cutler, enjoying their time on the tropical island, with the caption 'Happy birthday Kate!'

Now that's how to do a birthday.
