Think gold, gold and more gold.

By this stage, you’re probably more than aware that half-Palestinian supermodel Gigi Hadid has turned 23.

It’s been the birthday heard around the world, or at least around the internet, but we’ve got one more thing to draw your attention to.

What we know about Dubai’s Zaha Hadid-designed hotel
Everything we know so far about Rihanna’s lingerie line

Namely, how Hadid celebrated. Really, we just need an excuse to talk about her outfit.

We think you’ll agree that’s kind of on another level. Hadid opted for an embellished gold Versace mini with a more-is-more vibe, and we love it.

Here she is with younger sister, Bella, arriving at Brooklyn Heights Social Club, in the 1 Hotel on in Brooklyn, New York. A rooftop bar with views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, we’re thinking this is a must-visit on our next NYC adventure.

The pair absolutely coordinated their looks. It’s all gold all the time.

For her part, Bella shared this adorable family photo with a loving message for her big sister.

“At least once a day, I think and wonder how I got so lucky to have you as a sister. To have someone to teach me as I grow, to love me as I am… I know that I’d never be able to do this life without you,” she wrote.

“I am so proud of the woman you are, the ideas you have, the strength you have built, and the love you radiate.”

Youngest sibling Anwar also posted a photo to wish his sister well.

“The best has yet to come,” he said. Bless.

And of course, mum Yolanda Hadid also had a few words to say.

“Thank you for being the first person to teach me the true meaning of unconditional love,” her message read.

“I am so proud of the extraordinary young woman you’ve become and your ability to show love, compassion and kindness to all that crosses your path in life.”

With love like that, we’re thinking 23 will be a good year for Hadid.
