Birthdays give you an excuse to be extra. You can take a break for a week and travel, or celebrate the whole month. Of course, you can also wear your best birthday outfit to mark your special day. What? You thought you can only dress up for your debut? Think again.
We looked at what celebrities have worn for their birthdays, ranging from high-fashion to laidback depending on how grand there celebrations were. If you’re planning on dressing up or you’re currently thinking of a birthday theme, let these outfits inspire you.
The singer recently spent her 23rd birthday in Ibiza, Spain. Dua opted for a full-glitter ’90s bodysuit and a green wig. She also changed into a nude crystal-embellished dress with a thigh-high slit. Safe to say that she had a lot of fun with the camera flash and KiraKira+ app. (She also shared that she was nursing a hangover the next day. LOL!)
For her 21st birthday, Kylie went for two pink ensembles. Her birthday dinner outfit was a magenta Dundas dress which, according to E! News, she paired with Olgana Paris heels and a $148,000 Martin Kritz ring. When it was time to party, she changed into a LaBourjoisie jumpsuit that had 70,000 Swarovski crystals on it. Let’s not forget her $6,000 blonde ponytail. Dang, Kylie.
Forever the How I Met Your Mother fan, Maine suited up for her 23rd birthday bash organized by her fans. The venue was even decorated with yellow umbrellas and her cake had elements of the show like Barney Stinson’s Playbook and a silhouette of New York.
Adele made the most of her 30th birthday by living her Titanic dreams. She dressed up as Rose in her iconic black ballroom gown and her hair was styled the same way too. She said on Instagram that her friends and family played along as well.
Kathryn Bernardo was in California with (official) boyfriend Daniel Padilla for her birthday. They went to a vineyard in Napa Valley and had a wine-tasting session. For that, her outfit was a breezy white dress paired with sunglasses and a straw hat.
How to celebrate your birthday the Riri way? You wear a haute couture Saint Laurent ensemble and have your idol—in her case it’s Toni Braxton—perform at your party.
Anne Curtis welcomed 33 with a ’90s-themed party. She wore a long purple velvet dress and accessorized with a black choker.
