Bella Hadid Celebrates Her 20th Birthday in Pasties and Chainmail
While most of us likely spent Sunday night glued in front of our TV sets cheering or groaning over all the latest to come out of the presidential nominees’ mouths, it seems there was at least one celeb in NYC who was able to actually enjoy their evening without so much as a glimpse of a pantsuit or self-tanner, and that’s Bella Hadid. The model had a politician-free evening, stepping out to dinner to celebrate her 20th birthday with her mother and Real Housewife Yolanda Foster, her boyfriend The Weeknd and a handful of her closest friends wearing an almost completely sheer ensemble.
After all, what would a newly minted supermodel’s birthday be without an appropriately scandalous look to go with it, in this case an outfit that simultaneously nailed every ’90s trend from before Bella was born, as well as looking like what we’ll all be wearing in the far-off cyborg future. The model donned a sheer chainmail crop top with only a set of silver star pasties underneath, paired with a matching metal mesh and paillette mini skirt, a white fut coat, silver top-handle bag ,and lucite heels.
But while Bella was flaunting some skin in honor of entering her third decade of life, Gigi was too busy DIY-ing her denim to join in the festivities.
Earlier that day, Gigi shared a photo of her denim-clad leg on Instagram, showing off a few pearl embellishments she strung across the ripped and frayed kneecaps of her jeans, captioning the image, “my idea of an update ?.” The shot also features a tell-tale tattooed hand in the bottom right corner, which seems to suggest she and boyfriend Zayn spent the chilly fall day at home in their crafting nook. Considering the breezy weather this weekend dipped down into the 50s, we have to say, birthday or no, we’d take Gigi’s jewel-laden denim over Bella’s chilly metal two-piece any day.
