Supermodel Throws Lavish Bash for Billionaire Boyfriend

British supermodel Naomi Campbell has organized a lavish fete in India for Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, her longtime boyfriend, who turned 50 on Wednesday.

The pre-birthday celebrations kicked off Tuesday night at the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur and will wrap up Thursday, Campbell's spokeswoman Debi Zornes told The Associated Press.

Over 200 invited guests, including Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Demi Moore and Duchess Sarah Ferguson, were welcomed to the party by a giant portrait of Doronin as James Bond, Glamour reported.

Campbell was appropriately depicted as a Bond girl.

The couple themselves ended up wearing traditional Indian clothes for the evening, Business Standard reported.

The festivities featured fireworks, traditional music and dancing, as well as a $500,000 appearance by Diana Ross. Guests also had the chance to play polo on the seven elephants that Campbell rented out for the occasion, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported.

The birthday party on Wednesday was held at a former medieval palace Umaid Bhawan, which now functions as a hotel.

Doronin and Campbell have been dating since 2008, and he has been known to be generous with his gifts. Two years ago, he organized a luxurious party for Campbell's 40th birthday on the French Riviera.
