Music superstars Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have thrown a lavish party in London - costing the couple more than $1 million (GBP600,000).

The CRAZY IN LOVE star, 22, hired THE COLLECTION restaurant in west London for Friday night's (08MAY04) grandiose event which was attended by numerous celebrities including Alicia Keys.

Knowles and Jay-Z jetted into the capital to perform at the PRINCE'S TRUST URBAN MUSIC FESTIVAL at Earl's Court last night (8MAY04), a charity event organised by British royal Prince Charles.

A source says, "They pulled out all the stops to make this one of the biggest and best parties London has ever seen.

"Together they are worth millions and have spared no expense. To spend so much on a party indicates that you mean business - and in the hip-hop world, it's all about being more bling-bling than everyone else."
