People often say your 21st birthday is the last one you really look forward to. At 16, you can drive; at 18, you’re able to vote; and at 21, you can legally drink (in the U.S., at least). But even if you’re not hitting the bottle, turning 21 has come to mark the beginning of real-deal, no-turning-back adulthood. Most of us have fond (perhaps hazy . . .) memories of our 21st birthday celebrations, typically involving a college bar and a group of friends from school. We have a feeling Bella Hadid’s party tonight will look just a little bit different.
The in-demand model turns 21 today—her big sis Gigi announced it to her 36 million Instagram followers last night—but she’s accomplished quite a lot before enjoying her first legal glass of Champagne. In 2017, Bella has appeared in countless editorials and campaigns and walked dozens of major runways, including Donatella Versace’s ode to Gianni just a few weeks ago and Chanel’s rocket launch last season. Above, we’re revisiting 21 of her very best runway turns this year, ahead of what is sure to be a lively (and heavily Instagrammed) rager tonight. Stay tuned to see what she wears—our bets are on another catsuit.
