On Saturday, Gigi Hadid celebrated turning 27-years-old in New York City at the Zero Bond club, and major birthday love poured in from family and friends. The supermodel got dressed to impress for her big night in an Australian brand Dion Lee-designed ensemble. She was photographed walking down the streets in a sheer lace suit covered with exquisite detail. Gigi’s ensemble consisted of a floor length jacket, featuring high shoulder pads and bell sleeves. Underneath she wore a white lace corset crop top and transparent flared slacks.
The birthday girl completed her outfit together with some large jewelry, including several layers of pearl necklaces, and a pair of white heels as well as a sparkly clutch and belly chain.
Siblings Bella Hadid, 25, and Anwar Hadid, 22, appeared at the starry event as did her father Mohamed Hadid, 73, and mother Yolanda Hadid, 58, who was joined by her boyfriend, Joseph Jingoli. Bella attended with her boyfriend, Marc Kalman.
Gigi Hadid’s other birthday guests included Blake Lively, Emily Ratajkowski, and Ziwe.
Make up artist Patrick Ta also shared a picture of Gigi in which she seems to be inside the restaurant, striking a pose in her all-white lace look with him.
Earlier in the day, Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, marked her special occasion on Instagram with a sweet birthday message and a throwback photo of himself and the supermodel as a child.
The proud dad described Gigi as a “self made hardworking smart” woman and someone who “loves [and] respect[s] all people from all Religious walks of life.”
“She put[s] a smile on everyone,” he continued, in part. “She is after all A Hadid.”
Mohamed shares Gigi with his ex-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid. Together the pair are also parents to daughter Bella and son Anwar.
Sister Bella Hadid too took to social media to wish Gigi Hadid a very happy 27th birthday, calling the supermodel the “best sister.”
“Thank you for being born so that I could be born that was very sweet of u,” Bella wrote on Instagram April 23. “Thank you for being the best sister, mom, daughter, human bean ever. You teach me something new everyday and sometimes I just smile because I feel so lucky to be your baby sister.”
She added, “I’m sitting next to you right now so don’t make it weird when you read this. I love you.” Along with the heartwarming message, Bella, 25, included a carousel of photos, including several snaps from when they were kids and others at various modeling jobs as adults.
Bella was also spotted out at the Balloon Saloon in New York City that morning where she picked up a bunch of balloons, including one shaped like a hot dog, before taking them to her sister’s apartment.
In addition, Gigi Hadid’s elder sister Alana also reposted the same photo on her own Instagram, calling her little sister her “sweet little angel.” “I already sang you a horrible rendition of happy birthday and told you my wish from my heart,” the 36-year-old wrote. “I feel extra nostalgic this year maybe because it’s the first year in a long time I haven’t been with you on your birthday. It’s so amazing to watch you grow up, to see you flourish, to be there with you and for you. I am just so proud of you and you will always be that tiny squishy sweet baby I loved to hold, and you are at the same time the most amazing woman who has accomplished so much that I truly admire.
She added, “I adore you my Jelena. Never ever ever change.”
