So if you've been anywhere near social media this morning you will know that today the one and only Kate Moss turns 40. In last week's issue of Grazia we reported in our 17-page Mossy special that a close friend said: 'Every now and again she likes to remind people of the party legend. But her 40th birthday will probably be the last big bash for the Court of Kate.' So how is the party animal celebrating her big 4-0? In style, of course! From buckets of roses to a Necker Island getaway see how Mossy is doing 40 below...

1. Celebrating with the fash-pack...

Kate is celebrating this afternoon in London with her fashion pals including Stella McCartney, Nick Grimshaw, Mario Testino, Sadie Frost James Brown and John Galliano. Kate is wearing her signature leopard coat, with a black dress for the occassion.

2. Opening her MASSIVE present pile...

Whenever Mossy arrives at her London home she will be greeted by an impressive present pile. Forget a dozen roses, this morning a whole bucket of perfect red roses turned up. We'd like to know what's in the giant box and orange Hermes bag. Oh if only she had a public Instagram account...

3. Avoiding her iPhone...

We imagine Kate's phone will be inundated with birthday messages all day. Her 40th has gone viral, as Kate Moss is now trending on Twitter. No one wants to spend their birthday catching up with emails and Facebook messages, riiight? Over on Instagram Rosie Huntington Whiteley is leading the birthday tributes...

4. Enjoying her Necker Island tan...

The Mirror report that Richard Branson gave Kate sole use of his luxury island, Necker, for her 40th birthday for a week. The Mirror reports that this usually costs £280,000. Other guests include the likes of Sadie Frost, hairdresser James Brown and Fran Cutler. Sadie posted a picture on Instagram from the holiday, with the caption 'Necker island I love you.' Kate and pals must be building up impressive tans, as earlier this year they jetted off to Mustique. But Kate is celebrating in London as she was photographed leaving her house in a leopard coat earlier today.
