This weekend Karlie Kloss turned 21. She might seem older than that, since she’s been gracing runways and magazine covers and ad campaigns for the last seven years (yes, she’s been modeling for a whole third of her life). But she’s only just now able to legally crack open a PBR. Still, she’s no ordinary 21 year old. In advance of her 21st, man about town Derek Blasberg organized the leggy supermodel an A-list bash attended by everyone from celebs like Emma Watson to designers like Prabal Gurung to Kloss‘s model besties Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, and Jourdan Dunn. Kloss wore red Dolce & Gabbana and dined on Momofuku treats. Vogue chronicled the whole thing. And the fun didn’t stop there. For her actual birthday, Karlie and her fam (that includes her three K-named sisters Kariann, Kristine, and Kimberly) went to Disney World.
It’s, well, not the way we remember ringing in 21. There was way less Dolce & Gabbana and Vogue and way more Zara and puking in sinks.
Take a trip down memory lane with us as we compare our 21st birthdays to Karlie Kloss’s glorious one.
