Gigi Hadid's Off-Duty Style Used To Be Head-To-Toe Lakers Gear

Peak athleisure

Before Gigi Hadid was the street-style icon of our dreams, she was just a girl from Los Angeles who really loved Kobe Bryant and the Lakers -- like, a lot.

In honor of Kobe's last game on Wednesday night, Gigi posted a throwback photo to her younger days as an 11-year-old Lakers-obsessed birthday girl. Wearing Kobe's jersey and matching jacket, Gigi blew out the candles of her "Hadid" jersey cake. "Growing up a #KOBE fan made me want to be a great athlete and a great sports fan: two things that have brought so much joy to my life ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ," she captioned the photo. "๐ŸผEmotional tonight #8 #24 Thank you for 20 years!"

Bring back this look, girl. Please.
