Kate Moss has always liked to party. It’s not surprising that in celebration of her 50th birthday on January 16, she enjoyed a full day and evening of festivities.

Earlier in the day, People reports Moss, sporting a black fur coat, had lunch at Brasserie Lipp in Paris before a glam change into a black lace dress and heels for an intimate gathering at the Ritz.

Of course, there had to be a second location. Later in the evening, Moss, her boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck, and daughter Lila Moss left the Ritz to attend a formal dinner in her honor at Restaurant Laurent. Who made the guest list? Makeup mogul Charlotte Tilbury, designer Stella McCartney, tennis champion Venus Williams, and British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enniful, among others

Prior to the actual day, Moss also celebrated with a zen, pre-birthday spiritual retreat with pals on the island of Mustique.

Many of Moss’ celebrity friends took to social media to wish her a happy birthday. Sharing a throwback carousel of the two supermodels on Instagram, Naomi Campbell posted: "Happy 50th birthday, little Wagon! I’m proud to welcome you to the fabulous fifties! You’re my chosen family and I treasure our decades of sisterhood.”

Performer Rita Ora also took to Instagram, writing: “Happy birthday to one of my favourite humans on the planet. Thank you for your guidance all of these years and your loyalty and your work ethic is 0 to none.”

When recently asked how she felt about turning 50, in typical Kate Moss style, she coolly shrugged it off. "I’m not thinking about it. I do not feel 50,” she told Vanity Fair. She did, however, admit she’s given herself an earlier curfew on partying as the years have gone by. “When I do go out I leave at midnight—that’s my cut-off. I’ve seen everyone, everyone’s talked sense. After that [time] people start repeating themselves. So then I go home.”
