The Weeknd Celebrates His Birthday At Tao Downtown With Rémy Martin

On Friday night, TAO Downtown in New York City was transformed into an abandoned, jungle military base complete with a helicopter installation and overgrown entryway, to celebrate The Weeknd’s birthday with Rémy Martin headlining the exclusive, private party. Guests were instructed to arrive dripping in camo, urged by the guest of honor, The Weeknd, and girlfriend Bella Hadid who arrived hand in hand after posting multiple photos on Instagram of their fatigues.

Fellow XO artists Belly and Nav and XO founder/manager Cash joined The Weeknd upon arrival and posed for a few group photos before heading down into the military base to kick off the party. Bella’s mother Yolanda Hadid was one of the first guests to arrive, and waited for her daughter and man of the hour in a roped off VIP area directly under the helicopter’s blade.

Coming off New York Fashion Week, fellow models Candice Swanepoel, Shanina ShaikJasmine Tookes, and Lameka Fox joined Bella at TAO Downtown for The Weeknd’s special birthday celebration, toasting to a successful week on the runway as they snapped selfies together. Paris Hilton, decked out in theme with a short camo skirt and camo jacket, later joined the group of supermodels after she snapped a few photos in front of the XO birthday sign.
