Elton throws lavish birthday party for David Furnish

Renowned for his monthly flower budget, Elton similarly spared no expense to throw his boyfriend David Furnish a 40th birthday party at the couple’s new Venice palazzo over the weekend on October 26, 2002.

In addition to David’s own “warm-up” primer party at The Jewel Club in London a week earlier, Elton flew 100 friends in from London, New York and Paris for a two-day fete at the historic house La Giocanoda, and another at the Hotel Cipriani.

Guests Liz Hurley, Donatella Versace, Victoria Beckham, Lily Safra, Ingrid Sischy, David LaChapelle, Lynn Wyatt, Hedi Slimane and Sting were all upstaged by bad boy Brit artist Damien Hirst, who had to be subdued after his drunken sing-song toast went awry, reported on October 29, 2002.

According to the Daily Mail: Elton was such a fan of David Beckham’s Roverto Cavalli silk shirt, the kaftan-type 1970s number that he wore to David Furnish’s party, that he has bought one himself.
