Over the weekend, supermodel Bella Hadid celebrated her 25th birthday with a dinner and then a night out on the town with friends. But during the day, her celebrations started with a family lunch at home with her elder sister Gigi Hadid and one-year-old niece, Khai.
On Instagram, Hadid posted a gallery of images, showing the birthday girl holding her and Zayn Malik’s daughter at what appears to be a birthday lunch filled with falafel, salads, pita bread and hummus. The aunt and niece duo had their backs to the camera as they looked at some balloons with Hadid wearing a pair of knitted shorts and a striped jumper and baby Khai in a floral onesie and pink vans.
Hadid captioned the tribute to her sister, “We celebrate you today and every day @bellahadid: She’s my baby sister but also a firecracker of a spiritual body guard 😅 and a forever protector as an auntie. I have so much pride watching you take ownership of your growth and fulfillment, and I know everything that you have created for yourself will bring you the year of joy and light you deserve !!!!!! Can’t wait. 25 ! I love you more every sun-lap.”
Hadid also shared her own images from the lunch, including one of a gold balloon arrangement sent by Dua Lipa. Lipa, who is currently in London, also posted a birthday tribute for Hadid, sharing a throwback photo of the pair from her 26th birthday celebration in the UK in August on her Instagram stories as well as a throwback video of the pair dancing on a night out.
“Happy birthday to this lightbeam of a woman @bellahadid you are so loved!! grateful for you sis… rainbows for you always,” she captioned the first image.
Later that evening, Hadid went on a night out club-hopping with her sister, brother Anwar, and a group of friends in New York City. For the celebrations, the model dressed in a black crop top with an extreme keyhole opening and a matching skirt that featured a leather waistband and a cutout at the hip.
Looking every bit her signature Y2K-era style, the new 25-year-old wore a dark brunette wig with blunt bangs, smoky eye makeup, and a temporary butterfly tattoo on her neck. She finished the sexy but relaxed look with patent heeled knee-high boots, a leopard print purse, and a beaded choker necklace.
But the best part? Channelling Rihanna, she held what looked like a cocktail in one hand while heading from one spot to the next in her personal party bus. Vibes.
