Extravagant Celebrity Parties That Will Make Your Jaw Drop

Monica Gray - June 12, 2023

There’s nothing like attending an extravagant celebration for one of your friends or family members. Despite the stress and planning involved with parties, they’re always worth the effort. Whether the celebration is at the beach or in the mountains, there’s nothing better than letting your hair down and dancing the night away. But there’s no better way to party than at a celebrity’s party. They know exactly how to plan their spaces to throw the best party in the world. If we had millions of dollars at our fingertips, we’d throw an extravagant party, too. Many of these parties took place on remote islands or castles around the globe, garnering attention from jealous fans. As much as we’d like to experience one of these parties, we’ll just have to give up the dream and hope for an invitation.


Kidchella With North West

If you thought an extravagant party was for adults only, you’re wrong. North West had a celebrity party at just one year old. The Kardashians took a complete spin on Coachella and threw one of the biggest parties a child has ever seen. At the party, the kids enjoyed a Ferris wheel, karaoke, snow cones, and face painting. There were even Yeezus t-shirts. The mini-festival was probably better than any birthday party you’ve been to. In a photo Kim shared, she said, “This is what life is about! Our baby girl turned 1 today! We played so hard that they passed out while we were watching the game! Happy Father’s Day to the best daddy in the world! The way you love our daughter and protect her makes me filled with so much love!” If you want to summon your inner child, then Kidchella was the event for you. As most people put it, it was over the top (Refinery 29).

Kate Moss’ Fortieth Birthday

There’s no better way to celebrate your fortieth birthday than with a massive four-day party. Cotswold, England felt the impact of the $130,000 per day party Kate Moss threw for herself. She went with a Glastonbury-themed celebration. At the party, she had tarot card readers, entertainers, fire jugglers, and a small show. The space was something from the movies, and at one point, the noise was so out of control that someone called the authorities. At the start of the party, Moss and her friends wanted to party for 34 hours to signify the hours of her birth, but they only made it to 18. It looks like the celebration was cut short because of a necessary human need, which is sleep. Still, partying for 18 hours with Kate Moss is likely on everyone’s bucket list and the experience of a lifetime (The Guardian).


Kardashian-West Winter Wonderland Christmas Party

The Kardashians know how to party, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West threw a $1.3 million winter bash. Before their ugly divorce, they were living a high life. To prepare for their extravagant party, they decked up their $60 million Hidden Hills home with snow. The cost of dazzling their home as a white winter soiree cost $1.3 million. To enjoy sled rides, the snow mountains cost $15,000, and white tents with dance floors cost $50,000 each. Props and furniture cost $30,000. A private John Legend concert cost an estimated $500,000. The Kardashians weren’t the only attendees, A-Rod, Paris Hilton, and Jennifer Lopez also attended the extravagant party. Santa Claus and the Grinch also attended (EOnline).

P. Diddy’s 40th Birthday

The Plaza Hotel in New York City hosted P. Diddy’s 40th birthday, which was extraordinary. The glamorous black and white-themed event took place in the Grand Ballroom. If you’ve ever felt even an ounce of guilt at spending money on flowers, know that P. Diddy spent $28,000 on white orchids for his birthday party. His attendees dressed entirely in black and white, and to experience such a party was an experience within itself. In total, the party cost $3 million, and afterward, P. Diddy suffered his first hangover in five years. Amongst those helping to give him a hangover were Kim Kardashian, Jay-Z, and Estelle. And if anyone is going to have a cake with his initials on a shield, it’s P.Diddy (Daily Mail).


Simon Cowell’s Million Dollar Birthday

Most of us hope we have one million dollars in our bank account one day, while others throw away one million dollars on their birthdays. In 2009, Simon Cowell invited 400 guests to Wrotham Park, a mansion in England. The party started before arriving at the destination when guests were escorted to the party in a fleet of limousines. In the bathroom, mini sharks swam around in tanks, the food was beyond bougie, and Cowell’s face was projected onto the manor, just so no one forgot whose birthday it was. That’s very Cowell of him. At the party, guests dined on lobster martinis, chicken soup, and apple pie. At the party, Kate Moss, Elton John, and Donald Trump attended. That’s a surefire way to have an interesting night in itself. Guests struggled to find the perfect gift to please the stubborn TV star, and his ex-girlfriend Sinitta said, “I have had so many calls from people going, ‘Oh my God! What can I get him?'” Simon Cowell is known for being hard to please, so we can only imagine the struggle his guests faced before his extravagant party (NY Daily News).


Leonardo DiCaprio’s Extravagant 38th Birthday

There’s no better way to celebrate your birthday than with a $4 million celebration as Leonardo DiCaprio did. As one of the highest-paid actors in the entertainment industry, DiCaprio celebrated in style at the Darby. Amongst the attendees were Emma Watson, Cameron Diaz, and Beyonce. The Armand de Brigand champagne alone cost $3 million and is one of the world’s costliest drinks. Even though there was nothing eco-friendly about the part, DiCaprio donated money to charity for every bottle of booze sold (Luxury Launches).


Beyonce And Jay-Z’s On The Run After Parties

The year 2018 was wild for Beyonce and Jay-Z when they were on their On The Run tour. The after-parties were once-in-a-lifetime experiences and took place at stunning locations around the world. One place, in particular, was Lake Como in Italy, after their performance in Milan. This a place some of us have never been to in our lives, and we can only imagine the sort of extravagant after-party they threw. But there’s no better way to celebrate a tour than in a 19th-century mansion with breathtaking views and gourmet, mouthwatering food. They even had a dance-off (ET Online).

Heidi Klum’s Halloween Party

As the Queen of Halloween, Heidi Klum nailed down her costume to celebrate one of her favorite holidays. Her annual Halloween bash is one of the most significant events in America, and people look forward to the event every single year. Guests arrive in their freakiest, scariest costumes, waiting to impress the other guests. The spooky party will surely give you a scare or two, and it’s certainly the experience of a lifetime. Her most recent costume was a human-sized earthworm. She said, “I just wanted to think outside the box and do something different.” Amongst the partygoers were Elon Musk and Julia Fox, and guests walk through bathtubs of blood and drink endless amounts of Prosecco (USA Today).


Paris Hilton’s 24-Hour Bender

If there’s anyone that can party and drink, it’s Paris Hilton. This heiress treated her friends to a 24-hour bender at the La Voile Rouge party, and spent a whopping $350,000 after spilling ten six-liter bottles of Armand de Brignac into her friend’s mouths, all the while stomping on the dance floor. Someone at the party said, “Paris turned up with her entourage and within minutes the champagne was flowing – mostly all over the floor. She was gargling with it and spitting mouthfuls over people while dancing on tables.” There was no self-reflection or innocent behavior at this extravagant celebration. We’re left wondering what happened behind closed doors (Daily Star).

Tina Turner also surprised the star, who is Oprah’s idol. During the party, Oprah realized Tina Turner was in front of her and leaped out of her seat. John Travolta introduced Tina Turner to a clueless audience and said, “This next surprise and gift flew in from Switzerland.” The two embraced, and then Turner waltzed back on stage to continue her performance. Even though people weren’t at the celebration, the video went viral and we can only imagine the party space. One person said, ‘Seeing Oprah starstruck is phenomenal… great share. Tina Turner was a legend,’ We can only imagine the love Oprah felt to see her idol on her birthday (Daily Mail).

Justin Bieber’s 21st Birthday

There’s nothing more memorable than your 21st birthday. In America, you’re officially the legal drinking age, and there’s nothing you can’t do. Justin Bieber made sure the entire world knew it was his birthday, and as a notorious partier, the Canadian pop star celebrated at Omnia nightclub in Vegas by throwing endless bottles of champagne at his friends and party attendees. Anyone could attend the event, which makes this the closest we could have ever gotten to a celebrity party space. Beiber got on the mic and told everyone to throw their hands up in the air. He said, “We’re at Omnia nightclub, we’re in Vegas, I’m 21 years old. And I’m ready to go out and have an awesome time tonight.” Fans around the room went wild for the celebrity’s birthday during a night they probably didn’t remember (Pinterest).


Kylie Jenner’s Italian Getaway

For $250 Million, Kylie Jenner spent her 22nd birthday on a luxury yacht and threw an extravagant party that made headlines around the world. Even though we only see photos of the aftermath, we can only imagine what happened aboard that ship. The ship’s name was Tranquility, but there was nothing tranquil about it. There’s no better way to float around the Mediterranean than in a yacht. Party attendees drank pina coladas, drove around on jet skis, and jumped off the ship and into the water. Money never seems to be an issue for the Kardashians, and it seems like each Hollywood star tries to outdo the other for every party (Observer).

Blue Ivy Carter’s First Birthday

There’s no better way to celebrate your first birthday than as something out of a fairy tale. Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z would go over the top for their one-year-old, which is why they threw her a massive princess-themed bash. They adorned her with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of roses, and to top it all off, partygoers stuck their forks into a two thousand-dollar cake. Her Barbie Doll cost a whopping $80,000 because apparently, children need those sorts of things. At the party, a source said, “Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess. They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl.” Let’s just say their baby girl is living the good life (Cheat Sheet).

Naomi Campbell’s 36th Birthday Party

Naomi’s boyfriend Badr Jafar threw her a three-day birthday party that cost $1.8 million. Turning 36 is very special. He rented out the Burj Al Arab Hostel in Dubai, and 18 floors of the hotel were closed off for the event. Each suite cost a whopping $1,200 per night, and they partied for 72 hours straight. Let’s hope they even used those suites. She didn’t want her guests to repeat an outfit, so she had a different theme for every single night. There was an all-white party, a Brazilian samba party, a hip-hop night, and more. If you have $1.8 million lying around, as Naomi Campbell does, you could do the same sort of celebration, which included Jay-Z, Barack Obama, the Beckhams, and Anna Wintour. The star-studded crew danced to beats put out by DJ Cassidy (Style Caster).

But that’s because it’s her first birthday party and sh** costs!” The party wasn’t smooth, despite the price tag there were still mishaps.

I was like bloody Cinderella — I got to go to the Branson ball and I am eternally grateful.” At first, she felt imposter syndrome considering who was at the party. But after a while, she warmed up to the event and even ended the day with a water fight with Branson himself (Business Insider).
