Posh bash for Top Shop boss

Issue No. 2296

Topshop tycoon Philip Green celebrated his 60th birthday last week with a £6 million bash.

The billionaire flew celeb pals by private jet to an exclusive beach resort on the Caribbean coast.

Their five-star hotel was in a tropical coral reef. They ate £50-a-throw beef burgers.

And there were 15 bottles of £255-a-bottle Pol Roger champagne—per guest.

Green, an adviser to the Tory coalition on “efficiency” cuts, beamed his face onto the resort’s rocks.
