(Newser) – Miley Cyrus isn’t the only celebrity who can use a theme party (specifically '80s, for her 17th birthday) to dress like a hooker (in her case, Julia Roberts’ character from Pretty Woman—a film which, by the way, was released in 1990). Olivia Allin runs down some other notable themed bashes on The Frisky:

  • Jessica Simpson: Her Ken and Barbie party crashed and burned when her own personal Ken dumped her on the day of.

  • Christina Aguilera: Nothing says "festive" like a Stanley Kubrick film. The pop star threw a Clockwork Orange party when she turned 28, even dressing up in a bowler hat and jumpsuit.
  • Lauren Conrad: For some reason, the Hills star also thought “Kubrick” when she thought “birthday.” In this case, Eyes Wide Shut was the theme.
  • Katy Perry: Fire marshals had to shut down her Charlie and the Chocolate Factory bash, complete with Oompa Loompa nail polish, neon-painted clothes, and a Willy Wonka cake.
