Ex-reality star Nicole Richie celebrated her 30th birthday surrounded by fabulous A-listers at the Beverly Wilshire hotel Wednesday.

Fellow designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, DJ and Lindsay Lohan ex Samantha Ronson, her father Lionel Richie and her husband Joel Madden's twin brother Benji Madden all came out for the black and white themed party.

"I can't believe the outpour of birthday love I am getting on twitter today!" Richie tweeted. "From the bottom of my heart (& the top), THANK YOU SO MUCH!"

Richie wowed in a 1920s-inspired ensemble, a sparkly red dress and spiked Louboutins with her hair in a half bouffant. The Winter Kate designer nibbled on cake with gold detail, watched a video montage starring her kids, Harlow, 3, and Sparrow, 2, and close friends and received an unreleased Samsung Galaxy SII, which she used to take picture of the night.

 "I'm so excited about this new chapter in my life and so ready for something new," Richie told the Los Angeles Times. "So many of my girlfriends say that your 30s are the best. I couldn't be more ready."
