Vanessa Bryant celebrated her 31st birthday on May 5th. Even though her husband, Kobe Bryant is hobbled by recovery from his ruptured Achilles, he made sure to plan an elegant birthday dinner to surprise his wife. Kobe planned an intimate dinner party for family and friends. Plus flew in one of Vanessa’s favorite chefs, Fabrizio de Togni, from her favorite restaurant in Milan, Italy, the PaperMoon, to cook dinner.

Eggplant parmigiano, filets and penne arrabbiata. For desert, an almond roca fudge cake in the shape of a Louboutin shopping bag by Sweet Lady Jane and a penut butter and chocolate leopard cake by the chefs at the Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel.
