Supermodel and style icon Kate Moss is busy making plans to hit the big 4-0 in style this Thursday with a week at Sir Richard Branson’s fabulous Necker Island retreat.
You wouldn’t think it to look at her, but supermodel and style icon Kate Moss is set to turn 40 this week, on Thursday 16th January. Unlike previous years, however, the British starlet will be shunning the bright lights of London for an altogether more peaceful celebration on one of the world’s most iconic island hideaways – Sir Richard Branson’s fabulous Necker Island retreat.
The luxurious private island vacation forms the first of the fashion queen’s birthday gifts, with long-term friend and fellow Brit Sir Richard Branson generously offering Moss exclusive use of the Caribbean island for the duration of her birthday week, saving the supermodel an incredible GBP 280,000 in the process.
According to an insider close to the supermodel, Moss has been bowled over by the Virgin mogul’s kindness and is already looking forward to a stress-free, press-free week in the sunshine, surrounded by her closest friends and family. Whilst relaxation is definitely the order of the day, however, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be the mother of all parties to mark Moss’ birthday itself.
“Kate didn’t want the fuss and bother of London and the drama that comes with it. She’s decided to celebrate in private. She is absolutely delighted Richard gave her the sole use of his island, and is so touched by his generosity. She is planning a nice relaxing holiday but, at the same time, her actual birthday will be a massive one, just like everyone is expecting.”
The supermodel and her husband, Jamie Hince, are already soaking up the sun and look set to be joined by a select group of friends later this week. With the likes of Jude Law’s ex Sadie Frost, hairdresser James Brown, party-planner extraordinaire Fran Cutler and socialite Annabelle Nielson all on the star-studded guest list, the birthday bash looks certain to be a glamorous affair.
Whilst precise details about the nature of the party are still under wraps, Private Island News can reveal that all of Miss Moss’ guests have been briefed to bring along something for best, something for the beach, and most importantly, a show-stopping fancy-dress outfit. If that doesn’t sound like the recipe for the perfect party, we don’t know what does!
