Drew Barrymore 'hires drag DJ'

Drew Barrymore's engagement party featured a drag queen DJ.

The actress and her fiancé Will Kopelman celebrated their impending nuptials with a bash in New York City last Friday. They invited 300 people to join them, holding the event at the luxurious venue the Press Lounge.

Although it was an upmarket affair, Drew and Will wanted their friends - who included Cameron Diaz - to have fun too. They hired a drag queen to spin tunes, much to guests' delight.

"Drag queen DJ Lady Bunny spun '80s music on an outdoor patio, spies said, and was 'all decked out with a short dress, high heels and tall blond wig,'" reports New York Post.

Small candles were strategically placed around the venue to give some mood lighting, while more decoration came in the form of a giant green flower arrangement.

Those in attendance were treated to wine from Drew's new line - Barrymore 2011 Pinot Grigio was sipped by guests.

Food included mini fillet of beef, wild salmon and cheese and tomato crostini, with guests filing out of the party at around 11.30pm.

Drew and Will are believed to be expecting their first child, although they haven't confirmed the rumours. The 37-year-old actress' growing baby bump was apparent in the navy blue and white stripped maxi dress she wore to the party.

The couple are thought to be preparing to tie the knot on June 2 at Drew's home in Montecito, California.

"She wants it to be very personal and intimate," a source has said. "She wants to do it right and be surrounded by family and friend."
