Jessica Alba’s ’80s Birthday Party, Plus Other Wack(y) Celeb-Themed Shindigs

Happy birthday, Jess! The former “Dark Angel” celebrated her 28th last weekend with an ’80s party, dancing to Prince and Jacko as guests like Sarah Silverman and Rosario Dawson chowed down on fajitas and mojitos. The hit activity of the night? Connect Four. If life were a teen movie, there would’ve been a dance-off with the winner cruising away on Cash Warren’s moped.Jessica’s shindig got us thinking about how celebrities seriously love their theme parties. Below, some of the theme-iest.

  • Christina Aguilera celebrated her 28th birthday with a “Clockwork Orange” party. The singer dressed like the lead from the 1971 Kubrick flick, wearing a bowler hat and jumpsuit. Guests drank cotton candy mojitos and ate orange cake at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, where DJ AM spun records. [Now Magazine] — Not to be a purist, but shouldn’t they be drinking milk?
  • In 2008, Ashlee Simpson threw a white-trash themed party for her 24th birthday. The then-prego songstress wore Daisy Dukes, platform flip-flops, a bathing suit, and a fake belly tattoo. Guests like Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, and baby daddy Pete Wentz ate chicken fingers, corn dogs, and macaroni and cheese. [iCelebz] — There’s no better time to have a white trash birthday than when you’re planning a shotgun wedding!
  • Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Kobain and Courtney Love, celebrated her 16th at the House of Blues in LA with—eek—a suicide-themed party. The hoe-down supposedly cost $323,000 and guests had to wear black or red. Frances sported Angelica Huston’s dress from “The Addams Family” movie. Did we mention the gravestone-shaped cake and the contest for the “most dead”-looking guest? [Celebitchy]
  • In 2006, Naomi Campbell had a three-day, $1.8 million birthday party at a seven-star hotel in Dubai. Each day had a separate theme, including All White, Hip Hop, and Brazilian Samba. In attendence were the Beckhams and models like Linda Evangelista and Eva Herzigova. [BeauCorp] — Holy crap. $1.8 million on a birthday! For my 36th birthday, I want a rich boyfriend from Dubai, too.
