Happy Birthday, Kendall Jenner! The Instamodel celebrated her 21st birthday (officially Thursday, Nov. 3) on Wednesday night in Los Angeles, complete with her closest friends and a MirMir photo booth. Of course, the birthday girl had to wear a standout look for the special occasion, and a slinky mini dress made from Swarovski crystals definitely did the trick.

The outfit is one-of-a-kind, and custom-made by LaBourjoisie, reports WWD, in collaboration with stylist Monica Rose. People also reported that the dress took seven days to produce and, if ever it were to be sold, would cost $9,000. Casual.

Though the designer Antoine Salameh, who has also dressed sisters Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, told WWD that the look was inspired by the 1920s, we must admit that it appears to align more with the early aughts. Specifically, during a time when fellow famous Angeleno Paris Hilton wore a similar dress for her own 21st birthday. Let's take a trip back to 2002, shall we?

But don't think Kendall low-key jocked Hilton's look. Earlier on Thursday, she took to Instagram to show off her birthday outfit and acknowledge the likeness. "Vintage Paris Hilton vibes," she wrote.

When Hilton turned 21, she celebrated the milestone with a total of five parties across five cities around the world: Los Angeles, New York, London (where she wore the look above), Tokyo and Las Vegas. Will Kendall follow suit with her own multi-day string of festivities? The weekend is just around the corner...
