Kate hosts dusk to dawn party marathon to celebrate turning 34

17 JANUARY 2008
As her star-themed birthday festivities continued at London's exclusive Dorchester hotel on Thursday, Kate Moss showed that even as she hits her mid-30s she can still party with the best of them.

For the supermodel's 34th the day before, her Primrose Hill pals had laid on a string of events across the capital, starting sedately at 2.30pm with pink champagne and a cream tea, attended by her daughter Lila Grace and a posse of female chums, including actress Davinia Taylor, Meg Matthews and Kelly Osbourne.

Cover girl Kate left for the afternoon do wearing a white coat and escorted by her current beau, rock guitarist Jamie Hince of The Kills. At 8pm the beauty moved on to China Tang, the restaurant within the hotel owned by her designer friend David Tang.

By then she'd changed into Chanel jumpsuit with matching chiffon coat, both decorated with constellations. And her right eye had been playfully decorated with a painted gold star.

The next stop for the group, which included Jay Kay, socialite Sabrina Guinness and Top Shop boss Philip Green, was the Punk club in Soho.

Dancing went on until 3am, when more energetic guests headed back to the hotel, aiming to clock up 34 hours of celebrations - one for every year of their friend's life.
