Jeff Bezos throws fancy dress party to celebrate space launch

Jeff Bezos throwing a huge fancy dress party this weekend to celebrate the successful space launch that Page Six exclusively learned.

The party for the 57-year-old Amazon founder will be an Out of This World theme, and his guests will have to dress to impress.

The bash is being held in California and we're told that it would celebrate the billionaire's 10 minute trips to space last month alongside his younger brother, Mark.

The news comes after Bernard Arnault lost his title as a world richest man — being supplanted by French fashion mogul Bezos of LVMH, whose net worth reached $195.8 billion, while Bezos' fortune is listed at $192.6 billion according to Forbes.

Amazon stock fell 7.6 percent on Friday afternoon after the company reported 2nd quarter earnings Thursday — shaving $13.9 billion off its founder's net worth in just one day.

Sanchez will shrug it off this weekend as he celebrates his space mission alongside Bezos, now rumored to be his fiancee.

In February 2020, David Geffen broken a California record by selling the Bezos estate for $165 million in February of 2018, a piece of Hollywood history once belonging to billionaire David Geffen.

Then, in July 2020, Bezos purchased a $10 million home next door to the Warner estate, giving him the opportunity to create a massive compound.

He stepped down as Amazon's CEO last month, although he remains the CEO of Amazon.

He then became the second billionaire to go into space in less than a week after Sir Richard Branson beat him to it.

Unlike Branson's flight rocket plane, Bezos capsule was be automated and required no board security staff to assist onboard for the flight.

His rocket, The New Shepard, driven by his company Blue Origin, reached an altitude of about 66 miles, which was more than 10 miles higher than Branson's July 11 flight.

The 60 foot booster got ready to Mach 3 or three times the speed of sound to get the capsule high enough before separating and landing upright.

The passengers had several minutes of weightlessness to float around the spacious white capsule before returning home to Earth.

Bezos was joined by his brother and 82 year-old Wally Funk, one of 13 female pilots who went through the same tests as NASA's male astronaut corps in the early 1960's, but never made it to space.

Netherlands native Daemen, 18, was a last-minute fill-in for the mystery auction winner of a $28 million charity auction who pulled out at the last minute leaving Oliver Daemen's father to buy him seats.

When he touched down bezos said.
