HE is known for his affordable fashion, but there was no expense spared when PrettyLittleThing founder Umar Kamani tied the knot in the South of France on Friday.

The billionaire businessman — whose brand was acquired by Boohoo in 2020 — splashed £20MILLION on a four-day extravaganza at a five-star hotel as he wed model Nada Adelle.

After a white-themed party on Thursday evening, Umar jetted in Mariah Carey as guest of honour for the black-tie ceremony on Friday.

In a Dior gown, the superstar songstress serenaded the guests with hits including Hero, Always Be My Baby and Emotions.

Earlier in the day, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli sang as Nada walked down the aisle, before Umar’s close pal, ex-Coronation Street actor Richard Fleeshman performed Moon Dance at the reception.

The guest list at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc included Kate and Rio Ferdinand, Anthony Joshua, Ronan Keating, Tinie Tempah, Christina Milian, Naomi Campbell, Steven Bartlett, and Holly Valance with her property tycoon husband Nick Candy.

Guests were served a three-course meal of burrata and grilled tomatoes with an almond and herb salad followed by roast beef and peppercorn sauce.

The dessert included chocolate mousse paired with vanilla ice cream.

Former Corrie star Ryan Thomas — joined by partner Lucy Mecklenburgh and brothers Adam and Scott — gave a hilarious best man speech.

Each guest was treated to huge gift bags, printed with the monograms of the bride and groom.

The treats were left in their luxury bedrooms at the hotel, where a junior suite is £3,000 a night.

Umar set up Pretty­LittleThing in 2012 with his brother Adam.

An insider tells me: “Umar has worked so hard all his career and loves nothing more than to share his wealth with his friends and family.

“He is delighted to have found his match in Nada and wanted to create a huge celebration. He appreciated everyone travelling to France for his big day so want­­ed to treat them all.”

Umar — who proposed to Nada with a £1.45million diamond ring in 2021 — lavished pals with treatments in the Dior spa.

The Indian wedding took place yesterday while today, guests will enjoy a beach barbecue.

Don’t worry, Umar, I realise my ­invitation must have got lost in the post . . .

Rita’s mum is NHS hairo

RITA ORA’s psychiatrist mum Vera treated her NHS ­colleagues to a VIP night out on Monday – at the launch bash for her daughter’s luxury hair product range.

The pop star threw a lavish party in London’s glam Old Sessions House to reveal her Typebea range and Vera decided to give her colleagues at West London NHS Trust’s child and adolescent mental health services a well-deserved treat by bringing them along.

A source said: “The NHS staff had a great evening and enjoyed the free-flowing food and drink.

“Rita was excited to meet them and posed for pictures. She really values the important work they all do and made sure they went home with bulging goodie bags.”

Madge making waves

MADONNA certainly got Into The Groove as she geared up to end her Celebration Tour in spectacular style.

Amy Spalding said she came out during her second year at the University of Leeds after she did not feel she could while a pupil at £22,000-a-year Claremont Fan Court School in Surrey.

She said: “I grew up in a very conservative part of Surrey and the ­environment I was in was not very accepting and I never felt comfortable to be myself.

“It is funny as well because my two sisters are also queer and we had no idea that each other was gay.

“I got a girlfriend and broke the news to the family.

“My little sister was a bit like, ‘Oh no, now I have to come out as queer’.

“There were a couple of hesitations from the family but now everyone is so amazing and so supportive.”

Caught Live: Cruel Intentions @ Victoria, London

MOVIE Cruel Intentions has been cleverly captured on the West End stage as an eccentric musical including a nostalgic jukebox of Nineties hits.

Running at The Other Palace Theatre, it follows the same story of teen treachery, privilege and virginity, and pops with vocal talent.

Delicious chart bangers include Christina Aguilera’s Genie In A Bottle, TLC’s No Scrubs, NSYNC’s Bye Bye Bye, Ace Of Base’s The Sign and Natalie Imbruglia’s timeless Torn.

The source 1999 film material hasn’t aged that well but the production plays for laughs without fully committing to satire and gets away with it due to its peppy tone and fast-paced style.

It’s about having a good night out rather than exploring issues in depth, with little time given to delve before it’s on to the next hit number.

A fun, singalong night that will make you yearn for your school days, albeit briefly.
