Turning 35 calls for an elegant and very celebratory dinner. Just ask Carrie Bradshaw and that cake she dropped in the street. For her own party, Rihanna was joined by friends at Santa Monica hot spot Giorgio Baldi, which had been closed and balloon’d for the occasion.

In addition to her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, Rih’s nearest and dearest guests included her friend Melissa Forde and her brother Rorrey Fenty, according to TMZ.

The singer’s look was all about contrasts. Currently pregnant with her second child, Rihanna wore an innocent, almost angelic bright white minidress—but one that showed off her bust and revealed a lace bra (she is a lingerie designer, after all). Her purse was a youthful, Y2K-ish white fur, but the coat she chose is far more adult and dramatic: dark maroon alligator. Completing the look was a little bit of jewelry, made of what else but diamonds? Shine briiiiiight, toniiiiiight. Check out her birthday ’fit here. (Speaking of outfits, props to Rihanna for sticking with one look throughout her Super Bowl performance last weekend. As she explained in an interview, she wanted to focus on the music and the audience, not play around with clothes.)

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as though Rihanna’s pal Adele made it to the party. She was too busy performing at her Las Vegas residency. But the British singer did support her friend at the Super Bowl, and just revealed what she said in that much-speculated-on clip: “I was saying, ‘She’s gonna be fine. She’s gonna have some weed and be fine,’” Adele told her audience. “But clearly she couldn’t have any weed because she was pregnant!” Nope, no weed, but hopefully a helluva lot of birthday cake. Cake cake cake cake.
