Inside the high society birthday bash of the year: See how Princess Olympia of Greece celebrated her 21st birthday with star-studded guest list
Princess Olympia of Greece turns 21 on the 25th July, and started the celebrations early over the weekend with an A-list party in the Cotswolds. Sharing the double-party with her father, Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, who turned 50 on 20th May, guests included European royalty, British socialites and celebrities. The theme of the party was a ‘5021 revolution’ in honour of their ages, prompting attendees including Poppy Delevingne and Paris Hilton to wear Marie Antoinette-style dresses, while others opted for a modern take on black tie, teaming tulle gowns with trainers. The birthday girl wore a Steven Khalil gown and friend Princess Talita von Furstenberg (granddaughter of fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg) wore a black chiffon dress with an extravagant headdress. Poppy Delevingne also attended, wearing a pastel hued, tulle Marchesa dress. Jeweller Eugenie Niarchos, Vogue editor Lauren Santo Domingo, model Bianca Brandolini and Poppy Delevingne all celebrated with the Princess. Two more heiresses, Paris Hilton and her sister Nicky Roth-schild, also attended, wearing French courtier dresses. Net-A-Porter founder Natalie Massenet wore a tulle Giambattista Valli gown as she joined Poppy Delevingne on a rose-covered swing. Prin-cess Olympia wore Gucci platform sneakers underneath her ballgown, in her own twist on the ‘black tie revolution’ theme. There was a decadent dessert buffet for guests to enjoy, with macaroon mountains, jellies and beautifully decorated cakes on gold plates. Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, gave a speech for the guests. Poppy Delevingne was joined by her father, Charles Delevingne. No expense was spared in decorating the country pile, with enormous balloon displays, flowers and sculptures brought in. India Hicks’s take on the ‘black tie revolution’ was to paint on a white shirt and wear it under a tuxedo jacket. The lifestyle brand owner, who is the granddaughter of Earl Mountbatten of Burma and was one of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids, also posted a video of how she created the look. Fashion designer Valen-tino Garavani also attended, as did Tory Burch. Marie Chantal of Greece was pictured comparing the size of her Philip Treacy hat with Debbie von Bismark. Marie Chantal, the mother of the birthday girl, wore a custom Gucci dress.
