It’s a real Queens birthday!
On Tuesday night, Diana Ross celebrated her 75th birthday with a huge, star-studded party and performance (of course) and we’ve got all the deets.
Ross kicked off the evening with a party at Warwick nightclub. Then she jetted down Sunset Boulevard to the Hollywood Palladium for a very special birthday concert. According to E.T. Diana’s entrance was teased on the venue’s screen as she was driven there solo in a Rolls-Royce convertible.
Upon her arrival at 11:20 p.m., the birthday girl walked straight to the stage from her car via a side door, where she made her grand entrance in a bright orange dress — her first of five total outfits for the show, all of which were vintage — while a live band played her 1980 disco song, “I’m Coming Out.”
THE DRESS CODE
Ms. Ross instructed all her guests to dress “ULTRA glam” for the occasion and they certainly didn’t disappoint.
Tracee Ellis Ross coordinated her birthday look with her mom’s, wearing an enormous pink feather coat of her own paired with a chic bowl cut and glittery Louboutin heels.
Kourtney Karadashian rocked a stunning silver sequined pant suit for the occassion.
While Bebe Rexha showed off her curves in this hot pink sequined jumpsuit.
THE GUEST LIST
Everybody and their momma was there … no seriously.
Kris Jenner and her daughters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian were in the house.
Sean Diddy Combs attended with his mother Janice Combs.
Tina Knowles and Angela Bassett slayed per usual.
Gayle King looked fab as she made her way inside the Palladium.
Paps got a snap of new mom Gabrielle Union outside of Warwick.
And Chris Rock was also seen outside Warwick as guest made their way to venue number 2.
While at Warwick, Diana was serenaded with “Happy Birthday” by both Beyonce and Robin Thicke, separately.

After Diana’s grand entrance at the Palladium, Diddy took the stage next, performing his 1997 hit “Mo Money Mo Problems,” which samples Diana’s “I’m Coming Out.” Diana took it away from there, belting out “Stop! In the Name of Love” (1965), while Diddy’s three daughters — Jessie, 12, D’Lila, 12, and Chance, 13 — danced. The music icon then ripped off the train on her dress, much to the crowd’s delight.
Ross then sang a medley of her hits from “Come See About Me” (1964) and “You Can’t Hurry Love” (1966) to “If We Hold On Together” (1991). She then changed into a turquoise dress and brought out Stevie Wonder to sing her “Happy Birthday.” Thicke was the next guest to take the stage, joining Diana for a rendition of “Endless Love” (1981).
Dj Khaled kept the crowd hype with with a mashup of his song “All I Do Is Win” (2010) with Diana’s “I Will Survive” (1995).
The outfit changes kept coming, with Diana donning a champagne-colored gown before belting out “Your Love” (1993) — a song for which she requested the lyrics be placed on the teleprompter — and changing into a white dress before singing “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” (1970).
