Naomi Campbell threw 'perfect' party

Naomi Campbell has described her boyfriend's 50th birthday celebrations as "perfect".

The 42-year-old supermodel threw a spectacular celebration for Vladislav Doronin in Jodhpur, India - including a lavish bash at the Mehrangarh Fort which saw guests don traditional Indian attire to enjoy performances from drummers and traditional dancers, with the decoration including James Bond-style portraits of the couple.

Naomi has thanked her host, Maharaja Gajsingh of Jodhpur, for his help with the event.

She said: "His Highness' hospitality has been something I will never forget. Every single detail was perfect and the attention to detail showed by all of his team was out of this world. India is a spectacular country with so many wonderful sights and sounds, and the people of India I have had the privilege to meet and work with are also amazing - it is only with the help of the workers involved, partnering with Omar Sharif, Jamie Hince and the hard work of my Fashion for Relief team that this has been made possible and we have had the opportunity to host this wonderful event in Jodhpur and the amazing Mehrangarh Fort.

"We can't thank His Highness enough for all of the support we have received and look forward to seeing him again in the near future."

The preparations involved in setting up the festivities gave jobs to almost 1,000 people.

To climax the celebrations, Naomi and Vladimir were joined by many famous guests including Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Bob Geldof, Demi Moore and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, to enjoy a 1930s-themed dinner, with entertainment from Diana Ross, Chaka Khan and Bluesman Buddy Guy.

Maharaja Gajsingh of Jodhpur said: "We really enjoyed hosting Vlad and Naomi and their international caste and friends at their most magnificent celebrations - a spectacular Indian Fiesta at Mehrangarh Fort and the most elegant 30s party at Umaid Bhawan Palace, befitting the Art Deco grandeur at the Palace with my favourite music from Blue's Man Buddy Guy and Diana Ross with amazing fireworks.

"My admiration for Naomi and her team's meticulous party planning and compliment to all our staff and the Taj team for the flawless execution."
