Gigi Hadid Celebrates Her 'Golden' 23rd Birthday in Sparkly Midi Dress with Bella by Her Side
In honor of her golden birthday, the model dressed in head-to-toe sparkle for a star-studded bash
Gigi Hadid took her golden birthday to the next level with a perfectly color-coordinated outfit.
The model, who turned 23 on April 23rd (otherwise known as a “golden birthday”) celebrated her special day with a huge star-studded bash at Brooklyn Heights Social Club at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in N.Y.C. with her closest friends and family by her side.
In honor of Gigi’s special day, the supermodel sported a metallic gold Versace mini dress, see-through Christian Louboutin pumps and even a yellow gold manicure and eye shadow moment to match. And it looks like the supermodel’s family members — sister Bella Hadid and mom Yolanda Hadid — decided to go with the gold theme for the night as well.
Bella, 21, added some subtle pops of the golden hue to her ensemble, which included a leopard print slip dress featuring gold embellishments, gold hoop earrings and $795 Giuseppe Zanotti gold sandals. She styled her hair in a high ponytail.

Meanwhile, Yolanda, 54, dazzled in a long sleeved gold sequin dress paired with metallic gold pumps to celebrate her eldest daughter’s birthday.
Gigi’s makeup artist Erin Parsons used some unconventional methods to create the star’s glittery golden eye look. “Anyone want to know what the gold is?💡🙋🏻 using @maybelline Gold School Mono eyeshadow, apply wet over the lid and inner corner. Next apply gold craft store glitter (yep cheeeap!) over a clear glitter glue where you put the eyeshadow. Dab on with the fingertip for full coverage gleam! Finally add one gold Hexagon pailette to the inner corners for a blinding reflection!” she wrote on Instagram.
The rest of the Hadid crew, including Gigi’s 18-year-old brother Anwar (with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz) and her dad Mohamed Hadid, 64, headed out to Brooklyn as well for the bash.

Gigi was joined by a slew of her close modeling friends for the event, including Martha Hunt (in David Webb earrings), Hailey Baldwin (in an Oh Polly mini), Joan Smalls (in 8 Other Reasons earrings) and Cara Delevingne.
And that wasn’t even all the stars that came out in honor of Gigi’s golden birthday. Suki Waterhouse, Lily Aldridge and Olivia Culpo were spotted heading to the star’s birthday party too.
And to top it all off, Queer Eye stars Jonthan Van Ness, Tan France and Antoni Porowski celebrated with their favorite supermodel.
In addition to throwing a lavish birthday celebration, Gigi was also greeted with a huge Venus et Fleur floral arrangement of white and pink roses that spelled out “GIGI.”
Before the party, Bella shared sweet throwback photos of her older sister to wish her a happy 23rd.
