Valentino was treated to a “top-secret” surprise birthday party last week.

The iconic designer turned 80 on May 11 and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti was determined to make the landmark day go with a bang.

Giancarlo organized a party which was held last Thursday, the evening before Valentino’s birthday.

“Giammetti threw a ‘top-secret surprise birthday’ for the jet-setting designer Thursday night in Miami,” reports New York Post.

Guests were treated to a sumptuous meal, although the festivities were interrupted part way through. A fire alarm started blaring and the guests were initially unsure whether it was all part of the evening or not.

“The swanky group surprised Valentino with a dinner that was unexpectedly interrupted by a (false) fire alarm and strobe lights. A spy said onlookers ‘at first thought the commotion might be for Valentino,’ and that his fun-loving friends ‘applauded once the din stopped,’” the publication added.

Among the guests was star Anne Hathaway, who brought her mother along to the event.
