Nicole Richie's 35th birthday party

Celebrity birthday parties don't come much flashier than this. While we're used to a nice meal, one too many cocktails and a cry in the taxi ride home, A-list celebrations are bigger, wilder and last for days.

So from Kylie Jenner's coming of age to Kate Moss's birthday weekenders (they're infamous), we count down the most extravagant celebrity birthday bashes of all time...  

Nicole Richie’s Night Fever 35th Birthday
Following on from Beyoncé’s Soul Train themed birthday bash, Nicole Richie did full-on ‘70s glam to ring in her 35th year, partying with the likes of Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe and husband Joel Madden. Even Lionel went all out in a gold lame shirt and moustache.

Beyoncé’s ’70s Themed Birthday Soul Train
Beyoncé turned 35 in September and threw a Soul Train themed birthday bash to celebrate. We’re talking flares, afros, full-on ‘70s glam and a surprise appearance from Blue. The party guest list included Michelle, Solange, Kelly, P Diddy, Cassie, Jay (of course) and so many more - who wasn’t there?

Kate Moss's David Bowie Themed Birthday Bash
Kate dedicated her 42nd birthday party to the late, great David Bowie, who died just six days before another one of Kate's infamous birthday bashes. This year, Kate wore a sequinned skintight catsuit with glitter platform boots, and partied with Pam Hogg in PVC. Photographers Mert and Marcus captured Kate behind-the-scenes.

Kris Jenner's Great Gatsby-Themed All-Nighter
Kris Jenner might be in her 60s (and still look that good), but she's showing no signs of giving up her party lifestyle. To celebrate her new decade, Jenner threw a Great Gatsby themed party, and it looked INSANE. Floral walls, sequins and feathers everywhere, plus an incredible cake, this was undoubtedly the party of 2015. Kris left the bash in the back of her private car, fast asleep...

Kylie Jenner’s Coming Of Age
Your 18th birthday is a right if passage; a big night out, a LOT to drink and a few special gifts to mark the occasion. For Kylie Jenner? A brand new Ferrari, and a pre-birthday Birkin. To celebrate finally turning 18, Kylie hosted her birthday at an exclusive Hollywood club, with the likes of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik turning up (is this where they met!?). It’s hard enough trying to plan one outfit to impress, but ‘King Kylie’ rocked two, the first a couture Nicholas Jebran sequinned number.

Kylie's cake? A tongue-in-cheek (or should that be lip?) mouth shaped cake, served on a gold tray. The night ended with rapper boyfriend Tyga giving Kylie her birthday gift; a brand new white Ferrari 458 Italia convertible, all wrapped up in a giant red bow.

Before she even turned 18, the youngest Jenner posted this snap to her Instagram, of an Hermes Birkin handbag with the caption ‘and it’s not even my birthday yet’.

David Beckham's 40th
Not content with a birthday bash in the UK, the Beckhams celebrated David’s 40th birthday abroad, shacking up at the stunning Amanjena resort in Marakecch. Forget a birthDAY, David extended the celebrations for most of the week, including soaking up the sunshine and ditching the diet.



The star-studded guest list boasted the Spice girls, Eva Longoria and Gordon Ramsay, alongside Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.


North West's Very First Birthday
What kind of party does the most famous celebrity daughter in the world have for her 1st birthday? Kim and Kanye put together an entire festival for North, handily named Kidchella (after Coachella, obvs). There was a ferris wheel, teepees and face painting, as well as Kendall's singing.

Blue Ivy Carter's 3rd
Although Blue Ivy Carter's Frozen themed 3rd birthday was kept pretty private, we're pretty sure Queen B gave her a party to remember, judging by this cake snap...
