There’s no doubt that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but Bella Hadid just took it to a whole new level by wearing a handful of over 24 carats of jewelry on her last appearance on the red carpet.

On Thursday evening, Bella attended the Prince’s Trust Gala in New York alongside her older sister, Gigi Hadid. The model wore a strapless black midi dress for the star-studded evening, featuring a sweetheart neckline and a rose detail on the bust. Bella paired her dress with fashionable sheer opera gloves, sky-high black stilettos and the scene stealers of the night: multiple sparkling diamond jewels. Bella’s earrings, bracelet and ring all weighed 1.63, 16.84 and 6.06 carats respectively, and she finished her look with an equally dazzling necklace and intricate updo.

In contrast to Bella’s sophisticated, all-black look, Gigi stunned at the event wearing one of the season’s hottest head-to-toe colors. The elder Hadid’s playful, hot pink ensemble consisted of a dazzling pink long-sleeved off-the-shoulder mini dress, paired with matching opaque tights, towering platform heels and a small handbag. Gigi kept her glam simple and opted to leave her bleached blonde hair straight and parted in the middle.

The red carpet appearance comes days after the Hadid sisters celebrated Gigi’s 27th birthday together at the Zero Bond private club last Saturday. Gigi and Bella once again wore juxtaposed outfits for the party, with Bella in a dark ensemble and Gigi bright in white. The birthday girl wore a totally sheer white lace look to ring in her new year of life, complete with a corset, sheer pants and a floor-length shawl. Bella opted to pair a gray pinstripe miniskirt and black lace peekaboo underwear with a matching vest and nothing underneath.

Bella shared a sweet birthday tribute for her sister on Instagram, captioned, “Happy birthday to my big sister @gigihadid thank you for being born so I could be born that was so sweet of you. Thank you for to be the best sister, mom, daughter, human bean ever. You teach me something new every day and sometimes I just smile because I feel so lucky to be your little sister.
