Gigi Hadid officially said goodbye to her teens with a blowout at Chinese hotspot Red Stixs in New York to celebrate her 20th birthday. With best friend Kendall Jenner and 24 other gal pals by her side on Sunday (April 26), the blond beauty ate cake and posed for photos – one of which seemed to put rumours of Kendall dating Justin Bieber to rest.
The 19-year-old, who also opened up about her dad Bruce Jenner’s gender transition this weekend, shared a snap of the model duo on her Instagram. Kendall is seen enjoying the cake from Lady M Confections, while Gigi holds up signs reading ‘BFFs’, ‘kiss a fool’ and ‘single’, which she points at Kendall.
Kendall has been linked to popstar Justin since they were spotted together several times during Coachella.
For Gigi’s birthday bash, Kendall wore black leather trousers, a white shirt and a monochrome coat. And the birthday girl herself wore black, high-waisted trousers with a white top and statement coat.
Kendall’s dad Bruce officially confirmed that he is transgender this weekend, saying that he has “always” dreamed of being a woman in his highly anticipated tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer.
Kendall, his eldest daughter with manager Kris, posted a simple message on Twitter after the programme aired.
“I love you. So very proud of you, my hero,” she wrote. The model, who also changed her profile picture to one of herself, her sister Kylie and her dad Bruce, followed it up with an Instagram photo of an old school notebook.
“If I could be anybody in the world, I would be my dad,” the excerpt.
“I wrote this in 5th grade… nothing has changed,” explained Kendall alongside a heart emoticon.
