Sean Combs Throws Star-Studded 40th Birthday Party In NYC

Money is no object for legendary party host, Sean “Diddy” Combs and his 40th birthday bash held at the Grand Ballroom at the Plaza Hotel in NYC was no exception. The rapper is well-known for his lavish white parties, for which attending guests bust out their most blinding whites.

However, black was the theme of the evening with most attendees–including Estelle, Cassie, Jimmy Fallon and Shannon Elizabeth, Martha Stewart and Bono, just to name a few–showed up wearing black. The decor included a black chandelier and matching dance floor. The theme for the evening was “Garden of Eden” and included a $30,000 arrangement of orchids, according to Page Six.

But the best anecdote of the evening was relayed by a witness who claims that rapper Lupe Fiasco spent the evening flirting with Rachel Hunter. What can we say? Stacy’s mom still has it going on.
