Gird your loins, world. On Monday, Kylie Jenner turns 18. For someone who, as of yesterday, was not legally an adult, the youngest Jenner already lives a very adult lifestyle —what between her burgeoning beauty empire, $2.7 million mansion and months-long romance with 25-year-old Tyga. But on Sunday night, Jenner did as any loaded 17-going-on-18-year-old would do: throw a wildly extravagant birthday bash for her family, friends and surprise guest Zayn Malik.
The Los Angeles festivities, naturally, were far from tame and included two parties, a performance from Fetty Wap and a gifted $320,000 Ferrari. But what we really need to discuss here is the shindig's uniform — which, judging from an influx of Instagram, was solely comprised of bandage dresses with bedazzling and/or cut-outs. You know, for da club.
Jenner first convened a smaller group for dinner at the Nice Guy, where she wore an appropriately sequined Nicolas Jebran mini dress. All she was missing was a plastic tiara, and maybe a magenta sash that read "Birthday Bitch."
The congregation then changed locations for an after-party at Bootsy Bellows, a nightclub at which Kylie changed into a second glittery concoction. This time, though, the frock was black and sleeveless — so thank goodness for variety, right?
Neither upstaging Kylie nor disobeying the night's dress code, Kendall Jenner fulfilled her duties as Birthday Maid of Honor in a LaQuan Smith skirt and House of CB bandeau top.
Rival sibling pair Bella and Gigi Hadid were there, too, rocking a couple of body-hugging spaghetti-strapped dresses, Gigi in House of CB, with aplomb. As with all Jenner-Kardashian soirees, there was a themed photo booth on the premises.
Kim Kardashian donned a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier mesh set, proving my suspicions that even those who are five months pregnant are obliged to wear a bodycon dress to an L.A. watering hole. Kanye West wore ripped jeans (and was definitely more comfortable than everyone else).
I, on the other hand, spent all of last night in my pajamas watching "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back," so who really came out on top here?
