Madonna has shared her favourite birthday party images with fans after posting shots from the bash in Cannes, France online.

The pop superstar celebrated her 56th on Saturday (16Aug14) with a 1920s-themed celebration at a private villa in France, where guests included model Kate Moss and Madonna's longtime manager Guy Oseary.

The singer shared her selfies and snaps of guests dancing on Instagram, but it one with Moss that really caught the eye - it the shot, Madonna and Moss are pictured on their knees and the pop star added the caption, "Bow down B*tches! #whatitfeelslikeforagirl."

The birthday girls kids Rocco, Lourdes Leon, Mercy and David Banda also flew in for the party.
