Victoria Beckham's girly birthday
Victoria Beckham celebrated her 35th birthday early with a star-studded girls' night out in Los Angeles
Victoria Beckham enjoyed an intimate birthday meal with Eva Longoria, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Richie and Kate Beckinsale.
The former Spice Girls singer turns 35 today (17.04.09) but had an early celebration with her friends at Los Angeles restaurant Cecconi's on Wednesday (15.04.09).
A source told gossip website X17: "They all arrived at around 9.30pm and left at around 1.20am - a long dinner. They were seated at a huge table on the outside terrace. They all looked gorgeous and happy to be there celebrating their friend's birthday. They ate, drank, and sang 'Happy Birthday' to her."
The eatery is an off-shoot of London Cecconi's and is renowned for its delicious food at reasonable prices - a three-course meal including wine costs around £80.
The group ate gnocchi and swordfish washed down with Moet champagne.
The mother-of-three decided to celebrate with her friends early as she is planning to spend her special day with family.
Although her soccer star husband David Beckham will be away in Italy - where he is currently on loan to AC Milan - he organised a romantic meal for his wife while she was visiting him last week.
Victoria's girls' night out marked the first time Katie has been seen in public since her brother-in-law died unexpectedly of heart failure.
Joseph Jeffrey Fretti, 48 - the husband of Katie's older sister Tamera - was found by family members in his mother's Florida home on Sunday (12.04.09).
