Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner wished Riccardo Tisci a happy birthday
We've seen the fabulous Instagram photos and now full details of Riccardo Tisci's incredible 40th birthday party have arrived. Models, stars and fashion insiders flocked to Los Olivios horse stud farm in Ibiza on Friday night to toast the Givenchy Creative Director.
The theme was VIP Studio 74 (1974 was the year Mr Tisci was born) while the dress code was 'Black Subversive Glamour' so guests including Beth Ditto, Kate Moss, Joan Smalls and Anna Dello Russo pulled on their glitzy gladrags to celebrate in style with Beats by Dre. Riccardo and Kanye went matchy-matchy wearing the same Givenchy black shirt featuring a circle of white roses on the breast pocket. Meanwhile Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner were all dressed in black Givenchy. We love that Mossy was ever subversive by sporting a fishnet black dress with a colour-popping green bikini underneath and boy, did she look hot!
The invite: 17 is the year Riccardo Tisci left home and is his lucky number
Justin Bieber was one of the first to arrive at 10pm and was spotted hanging out with Kendall Jenner while Kim Kardashian perched on Kanye West's knee as they chatted to P.Diddy. Editors including Giovanna Battaglia, Jefferson Hack, Katy England and Edward Enninful danced in between rows of white roses while photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott treated us to the chicest Instagram snaps. A huge disco glitter ball hung above the crowds, sparkling over a massive white floral 'RT Star'.

As if that wasn't wonderous enough, 40 white balloons were released as Riccardo arrived and guests were welcomed by a solo Spanish guitarist. A four-tiered white birthday cake with one candle was enjoyed by guests (move over, Kimye) and Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell led the singing of happy birthday. On the food front, guests tucked into a Spanish banquet of gazpacho, myriad tapas, paella, and fresh tortillas washed down with CÎROC 74 summer cocktails especially created for the occasion. Oh, and there was a LOT of champagne too.
A special video was played starring friends who couldn't make it (we're talking Anna Wintour, Florence Welch and Jake Gyleenhaal), wishing Riccardo a great night. Kanye himself was featured, cheekily saying sorry for not being there before appearing on a balcony to serenade a surprised Riccardo. Songs including 'Turn Up The Lights' and 'Gold Digger' had the guests dancing like crazy. He finishing by saying "Friends Forever!" after which he led a birthday cheer. By 6am, the celebrations were still going and Justin Bieber was spotted leaving with a certain Ms Kendall...
Naomi Campbell gifted Riccardo with 24ct gold Beats by Dre Pro headphones
So what to buy Mr Givenchy? Well, we do know tht Beats by Dre gifted the designer 24ct gold Pro headphones, which were presented to him by Naomi Campbell at the party. 'I am grateful to have spent my 40th birthday in Ibiza in the company of Beats by Dr. Dre. They made the celebration unique and memorable,' said the birthday boy. 'Music is at the core of my creativity, so it was only natural for me to have Beats by Dr. Dre involved. And to celebrate in Ibiza, one of my favourite islands in the world, surrounded by loved ones, just made it all complete'.
