Isabelle Bettany tackles birthday dressing by taking inspo from the gals who do it best.
With the world still recovering from THAT silver dress – yes we are referring to Kendal Jenner’s incredible silver number that she rocked during her recent 21st birthday celebrations in West Hollywood, let’s take a moment to discuss.
Early November marked the elder Jenner sister’s 21st birthday, a milestone for any girl and she celebrated in inevitable style. Ms Jenner was spotted dancing the night away in the Hollywood club Delilah, sporting the most incredible, custom-made LaBourjosie dress.
The designer, Antoine Salameh created the bespoke Swarovski crystal covered slip especially for the starlet for a whopping $9000. Miss Jenner collaborated with stylist to the stars Monica Rose, who added the finishing touches (in the form of accessories) to the incredible dress. Pairing it with a metallic Lucite clutch by L’Ashter, barely there strappy heels, layered jeweled chokers and finishing off the look with coordinated metallic nails. With the rest of the party in strictly all black attire Kendal’s dress made the birthday girl the center of attention – no doubt her aim.
Whilst this look sets the standards for show stopping birthday attire, we can’t not refer back to the original creator of this look, rocked by a fresh faced 21-year-old Paris Hilton back in 2002. Homage to the original queen of LA? We totally approve.
