Happy birthday Gigi Hadid! The gorgeous model turned 21 this weekend and celebrated in style. After a busy few months of photoshoots, catwalk shows and TV appearances, not to mention a whirlwind romance with her new beau Zayn Malik, Gigi chose to take it easy by kicking off celebrations with a laidback family party.

In an Instagram snap she shared with her 16 million followers, she gathered for a family photo with model sister Bella Hadid and brother Anwar as well as her half-sisters Alana and Mariella, captioning the snap “Birthday week begins”.

After posing for the family pic, the Hadid’s celebrated with a good old fashioned birthday cake and lunch, proving that they’re just like us! Bella even shared a Snapchat video of her sister blowing out her birthday candles.

Gigi dressed down for the informal occassion, but of course, she still looked flawless. We wouldn’t expect anything less! Keeping things casual, she wore a pair of long denim shorts and a slouchy grey sweater. What really caught our attention, though, was her amazing eyewear. As you can see, she accessorised her 21st birthday outfit with a pair of cool statement shades which added a chic touch to her ensemble.
