Adele rang in her 31st birthday in style on Sunday as she partied with the A-listers in Beverly Hills.
The down-to-earth Brit chose a Gatsby-theme for her special day and chose the epic $135million iconic mansion used in the Godfather movie for the venue.
The 29-bedroom Mediterranean-inspired mansion was the setting of the famous scene with the severed, bloody horse head in the bed.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s stepfather David Ward let slip some of the details on his Instagram that day, sharing a picture of himself and the moviestar’s mother, Irmelin.
He wrote: ‘Celebrated Adele’s 31st at the most amazing Gatsby esque and lavish gig last night. All cell phones were handed in by guests and no paparazzi present.

‘Party held at the iconic Godfather mansion, home to the the horses head in the famed 1972 movie.’
David and Irmelin looked incredible in the snap and their presence means it was likely that Leonardo DiCaprio himself was there.
No doubt he would have enjoyed the Gatsby theme, given that he starred in the Great Gatsby himself in 2013.
What a place to throw a party: The sprawling 153,692-square-foot mansion where the party was held was listed for sale for $135m back in October and two years before, it was listed at $195m
Looks familiar: The iconic property as it looked in the 1972 classic The Godfather, with classic cars in the drive
Rolling in the cash: In 2013, it cost $600,000 to rent per month, so no doubt Adele, who has a net worth of $135 million, (the same amount the property is worth), has really splashed the cash on this one
To be a fly on the wall: The rooms are ornately decorated with snooker tables and grand fireplaces creating quite an impression
Views for days: The Mediterranean-inspired property is the perfect place for celebrities to go wild in private
Adele shared a few black and white images from the party, showing off her stunning dress and hair, which was curled and styled into a 20s ‘do.
The sprawling 153,692-square-foot mansion where the party was held was listed for sale for $135m back in October, according to Business Insider. Two years before, it was listed at $195m.

The year before, the singer celebrated with a Titanic-themed bash, dressing as Kate Winslet’s character Rose from James Cameron’s epic 1997 disaster movie – although some fans felt this to be in poor taste, given the lives lost.
Leonardo DiCaprio starred in this movie, too, so it’s fair to say she’s a bit of a fan.
In 2016, the singer took to social media to wish him luck ahead of the Oscars – he did in fact win his first gong for The Revenant.

Meanwhile, Adele shared a candid message about ‘learning to love yourself’ as she rang in her 31st birthday on Sunday, following her split from husband Simon Konecki.

Taking to her widely-followed Instagram account, the singer treated fans to a glimpse at her glitzy celebration while reflecting on her year and moving forward as a single woman.
The Someone Like You musician penned: ‘This is 31…thank f****** god. 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. ‘
Sharing her thoughts on her past year, the Hometown Glory hitmaker explained: ‘No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay.’
Newty single: The award-winning musician confirmed her split from husband Simon, 45, last month (pictured together in 2013)
Adele, who shares her six-year-old son Angelo with ex Simon, 45, insisted she’s looking forward to the future.
The Tottenham native elaborated: ’31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.’
Further into the open post, the award-winning singer shared advice on self-worth with her social media followers.
‘Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity’, she said.
‘Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually.
‘Bunch of f****** savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤️’, she ended her honest post.
The singer and the charity entrepreneur confirmed their separation last month after an eight-year relationship and three-year marriage.
Adele, who met her ex in 2011 and married him in secret in 2016, said the pair were committed to raising their son Angelo together ‘lovingly’.
The singer’s representatives said: ‘Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy.’
Her spokespeople added that the star would be making no further comment on the matter. Adele and Simon tied the knot sometime in 2016, though they managed to keep the secret wedding under wraps until the following year.
