23:08 GMT, 6 November 2012
It's set to be one of the most star-studded parties of the year and no expense has been spared.
Naomi Campbell has gone all-out for her billionaire boyfriend's 50th birthday party in Jodhpur after hiring out the entire 15th century Mehrangarh Fort.
A team of staff have been working day and night to get the venue ready for Vladimir Doronin's party on Wednesday and their efforts seem to have paid off.
Preparations underway: The historic Mehrangarh Fort is already being decorated ahead of Wednesday's party
With a high-profile guest list including Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Bob Geldof, Sarah Ferguson and Diana Ross, the scene is being set for one of the most lavish parties they've ever seen.
The enormous venue has kept to Rajasthani themes, with the main room decorated in bright colours, with comfortable beds and cushions scattered everywhere.

Following the Bond style e-invites that guests received, which featured images of Vladimir underwater a la 007, a giant portrait of the birthday boy and Naomi posing under the title For Your Eyes Only has been hung in the main party room.
