Princess Olympia of Greece won't turn 21 until later this month, but over the weekend she marked the occasion with a lavish affair in the Cotswolds in England.

The event, which was themed '5021 Revolution,' celebrated not only Olympia's upcoming birthday, but also her father, the Crown Prince of Greece's, 50th.

In honor of the event, celebrity and royal guests including socialite Nicky Hilton, designer Valentino Garavani, and model Poppy Delevingne, descended on a balloon-adorned mansion in the British countryside, and followed the innovative dress code to a T. Invitees were asked to "revolutionize black tie," a direction which prompted floral headdresses, fur coats, and even a suffragette-inspired sash.

Photos on Instagram—search the hashtag "5021revolution" to see a full array—reveal an impressive cake, macaron tower, and stage, but the real highlight of the event was a speech from Crown Prince Pavlos.

"In your life, you have done a lot of things that has impressed, depressed, driven us crazy," he said. "Let me tell you few things about life with Olympia. First of all, you’re beautiful. You’re full of energy. Energy that comes from your mother.”
