Denim was a natural birthday suit of choice for model, influencer and ultimate California girl Gigi Hadid, who celebrated her 24th birthday in New York City Monday night with a denim-themed, celebrity-filled fete.
According to People, the dress code for party held at L’Avenue at Saks was “Denim and Boots.” The birthday girl paired a customized Levi’s Authorized Vintage Trucker jacket and 501 jeans—each with a “24” patch”—with a cropped white tee and Dr. Martens boots.
It was a fitting theme for Hadid, a former Guess girl, who is frequently snapped in double denim. Hadid is currently the muse for Tommy Hilfiger‘s denim collection.
Guests dressed the part, including mom, Yolanda, in a three-piece dark denim suit, and supermodel Helena Christensen, in retro high-waisted flare jeans. Hailey Steinfeld opted for an uptown-downtown look in a deconstructed tweed and denim jacket. Both Ashley Graham and Olivia Culpo wore long jean jackets as dresses with statement boots.
Gigi’s sister and model Bella Hadid turned out in one of the boldest denim looks—a denim bustier by Denimcratic. The bustier, which Denimcratic founder (and Rivet 50 member) Gabriella Meyer said was requested by Hadid’s stylist Mimi Cuttrell, featured a shell made with 100 percent recycled denim and lime green Egyptian cotton lining.
“We were so thrilled when Mimi’s team reached out to us with the request, as we have wanted to work with her for a while, and absolutely adore Bella’s style,” Meyer told Rivet. “The Denim Bustier was a perfect piece and perfect fit for her.”
An Instagram post by Bella showing off the bustier has received more than 1.2 million likes since Tuesday morning. That level of attention has helped raise Denimcratic’s profile on the social media platform, which Meyer said saw “a flux in traffic” after the post.
“I think Bella has a unique way in which she wears her denim,” Meyer added. “Her style often toggles between feminine and utilitarian, which is most often successful and something I can relate to most on a personal level. That is my favorite kind of style.”
