Ellen DeGeneres sure knows how to throw a birthday party! The hilarious talk show host, who turned 60 on Jan. 26, celebrated the milestone with an epic, star-studded bash in Los Angeles on Saturday (Feb. 10).

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Munn were just some of the A-listers who showed up to shower the host with some love.

In between sipping cocktails and eating apps, guests spent some time posing for portraits in a special photo booth Ellen commissioned for the occasion. Here's just a small sample of the shots that have been shared on Instagram.

In the lead-up to the party, Ellen celebrated on her show with a roster of Hollywood heavyweights, including Justin Timberlake and Michelle Obama. Her wife, Portia de Rossi, even made a special appearance and surprised her with a touching gift: a eponymously named gorilla conservation centre. The donation will create a permanent home in Rwanda for researchers with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.

In a statement, the star said she was "beyond excited" about the gift and that de Rossi, "knew the exact right gift to give me."
