Los Angeles - Sir Paul McCartney celebrated his 65th birthday with a stylish fancy dress party on Tuesday night, but his ex-wife Heather Mills was not invited.

The Beatle legend - who turned 65 on Monday - was joined by a host of stars for the bash organised by his eldest daughters, Mary and Stella at his London home.

Guests at the Great Gatsby-themed party included Elton John, dressed in extravagant purple trousers and his partner David Furnish, who looked stylish in a black and white suit.

Screenwriter Richard Curtis, musician Jools Holland and photographer David Bailey also got into the spirit of the party with their elaborate outfits, while Kate Moss looked stunning in a long, slinky cream dress.

'Heather's presence would create tension'

The celebrations were in stark contrast to last year when he celebrated his 64th birthday with a quiet family barbecue, following his bitter split from estranged wife Heather Mills.

Although he and Heather are now said to be on better terms as they finalise their divorce, she was not invited to last night's party as it was felt her presence would create tension.

Heather and Paul, who were married for four years, have a three-year-old daughter, Beatrice. - Bang
