Kate Moss enjoyed a lavish party as she celebrated her 30th birthday on Friday (16JAN04) with pals Sadie Frost and Gwyneth Paltrow - where gifts included a diamond-encrusted whip.

The supermodel enjoyed a star-studded party which revolved around a theme based on the decadent 1920s of F SCOTT FITZGERALD'S novel THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE DAMNED - sex, drugs and orgies.

Held at the home of Leah Wood, daughter of Rolling Stones legend RONNIE WOOD, the birthday girl was given over $1.7 million (GBP1 million) worth of gifts - including a diamond-encrusted AGENT PROVOCATEUR whip and underwear.

This was not the only bash held for the style icon. Earlier in the night, Moss, her boyfriend JEFFERSON HACK, Naomi Campbell and GWYNETH PALTROW attended a party held in the adjoining houses of artists Sam Taylor-Wood and Agent Provocateur boss SERENA REES.

A source says, "The parties looked fantastic. The production was done by the people who organise Alexander McQueen's shows."
