With the year we've had, it's easy to understand why one wouldn't want to go all out for their birthday. I mean really there's not much to celebrate. Like me, Bella Hadid isn't into big birthday bashes at the best of times, something she admitted in a recent Instagram caption. However, over the weekend, Bella (who is the youngest Hadid sister) turned 24 and boy did she throw a serrrious party.
Naturally we've been watching it unfold over the last two days/attempting to live vicariously through her and all we have to say is wow, we 'aint been doing birthdays right. Kicking off the celebrations with an iconic series of photos in a balloon clad private jet, Bella posed with besties Devon Carlson and Alana O'Herlihy.
"Oh gosh I feel just really lucky," began Bella. "I usually cancel any kind of big birthday celebration so this year I just wanted to take my beautiful friends on an adventure that was absolutely non refundable"
We patiently waited to see where this magical trip would take them, but before we could make any calls, the bday girl uploaded another pic of herself and Devon in an idilic looking location. Bells didn't tag the place, but we have a feeling it's somewhere boujee and tropical, cause, obvs.
Surrounded by cocktails, the girls posed in very cute bikinis (if anyone knows where Bella's is from pls lmk) and they literally look like they're having the time of their lives. We also loved that B switched up her usual bob hairstyle for some long wavy extensions. Very into it.
Next up, (yes we kept refreshing Insta so we could watch this all real time) Bella and Alana recreated a TikTok of Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. The hilarious KUWTK clip, which was from a girls night out in Palm Springs featured Kylie singing: "Cause I'm gonna get wasted. I just finished a cold cup of 42 and I’m about to go for my second one. Kourtney, what the f*** are you on?" Pls do watch the video and lol with us...
In her next post (stay with us, there are a lot) Bells posted a cute video with a sparkly filter and gushed about her birthday love.
"Kissing and hugging every one of you from my soul to yours," she wrote. "Thank you for the birthday love. this year has been overwhelmingly up and down , but all around I feel so grateful to be alive. a year of growth, change, lots of self realizations and manifestations. thank you for being here to watch me grow .. ur support means the world to me and during a very melancholy year, you made me feel a lot less alone .. thank you 🥺❤️ and thank you to my mommy for birthing me. you are the goat."
Sat opposite the most astounding cake we have EVER seen, the birthday girl posed in a beaut sparkly crop top. Look at that hair!! Finally, (well, for now lol) she shared an iconic video of herself and all her friends singing along to Young Money Bedrock. Miming along to the lyrics whilst frolicking on a white sandy beach, the group took turns singing to the camera.
Clearly, they are all having the time of their lives and we are absolutely in no way jealous.
