What Happened At Kate Moss 40th Birthday Party

It's no secret Kate Moss knows how to throw a mega birthday party and as the supermodel hits 40, there's no sign of her slowing down. Oh no! As per the typical Mosskins event (remember her hen night at the Isle of Wight Festival?), revellers required the stamina of seasoned marathon runners to make it through the end of four days of banqueting, drinking and carousing.

After kicking off her milestone celebrations with a posh lunch on Thursday, the superdupermodel continued the fun with what is being described as a mini Glastonbury. Although we haven't had confirmation on whether Mossy cracked out the denim cut-offs and Hunter wellies, reports do suggest that the birthday bash on Saturday night was festival-themed with everyone from Naomi to Stella enjoying everything from fire jugglers to face-painters. Oh, and it cost an eye-watering £100,000. Gosh.

Read on for all the juicy details that have emerged about Mossy's Glasto-fabulous shindig - and cross those fingers that some wild birthday pics will eventually emerge...

1. The Venue

The extravagant party took place at Kate's ten-bedroom home in the Cotswolds, which she shares with hubby Jamie Hince and daughter Lila Grace. The birthday girl arrived from London in the £20,000 vintage Porsche Carrera that Sir Philip Green had given her as a present on Thursday. Yurts adorned the garden with tarot card readings, fire jugglers and face-painters on hand as well as a rave tent to create that Glasto vibe. The next day (Sunday), Kate hired the dining room at a local pub for the guests who were still standing, making a total of four boozy days. Viva La Mossy!

2. The Music

Kate reportedly spent £30,000 on entertainment for the big bash, enlisting Florence and the Machine, Mark Ronson, Soul II Soul AND Massive Attack to perform on the night. Each band was said to represent a decade of Mossy's life. As if that wasn't enough, rumour has it Noel Gallagher broke into an impromptu rendition of 'Happy Birthday' at 6am. How very rock'n'roll.

3. The Guests

Uma Thurman, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and Nick Grimshaw were just a few of Kate's famous friends who arrived at the do. There was a spot of royalty too in the form of Princess Beatrice, who joined Mossy's holiday crew last year, as well as Vivienne Westwood and, err, Dermot O'Leery. How perfect for an X Factor reenactment! Although we've spent the morning trawling through their Instagram accounts for sneaky pics of the birthday girl, turns out ALL mobile phones were handed in at the door to stop any drunken photos hitting the Interwebs. Dammit!

4. The Food

Or rather The Drink. The blonde beauty reportedly paid out a hefty £80,000 on spirits and an endless supply of champagne to keep her guests merry throughout the evening. Here's hoping there were some edible treats too – it’s always handy to have something stodgy to line the ol’ stomach when you're in for a booze fest.
