NEW YORK (AP) _ The dress code was strict, the security tight and the champagne free at a celebrity-studded birthday bash for Sean ``P. Diddy″ Combs.

The party Monday night at The Supper Club, a posh Times Square nightspot, was in honor of the music executive’s 33rd birthday.

Among the stars on the guest list were models Carmen Electra, Tyra Banks and Gisele Bundchen, rappers Ice Cube and Ice-T, singers Ashanti and Craig David, and actress Drea de Matteo of ``The Sopranos.″

Champagne bottles were placed on the red tables inside the two-tiered club. Hundreds of silver balloons hung from the ceilings, and photographs of Combs were displayed on the walls.

A few dozen celebrity-watchers gathered behind police barricades across the street from the club, snapping photographs as the guests arrived.

Male guests were required to wear suits, while the women were asked to wear dresses.
