Golden Goddess: Normani Celebrates Her Birthday With A Bikini Slay
Happy birthday to the one and only, Normani! The singer and performer celebrated her 26th birthday on May 31 in Mexico. For the occasion, she posted a series of photographs to Instagram to mark her special day.
“Just feeling sooooo grateful today,” she captioned her Instagram post. “Thank you lord for twenty six years around the sun. It’s y’all favorite bad b—h birthdaaaaaaaaay,” she added.
As usual, Normani looked absolutely stunning. She posed in a Cult Gaia gold two-piece bikini in the Zoey Bikini Top and Bottom styles reminiscent of early 2000s beachwear, with two choker shell necklaces to match. To complete her look, Normani wore the Ryka Platform wooden mules with geometrical heels, adding another trendy edge to her outfit. The Cult Gaia brand has also been spotted on other A-list celebrities including Megan Thee Stallion, Jennifer Lopez, High School Musical alumna Vanessa Hudgens, Euphoria‘s Sydney Sweeney, and more.

Behind the photographs is Jacob Webster, a photographer who has captured the outfits of numerous celebrities such as Chloe, Doja Cat, and Lori Harvey. It isn’t Normani’s first time working with Webster though. He previously photographed her outfit for the 2022 Met Gala and various other events and outings.
Normani struck poses in multiple locations, including a beachside cabana and the front of a boat. The 26-year-old spent her birthday at One & Only Palmilla, a luxury beach resort and spa stretching over the sea in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Fans, friends and celebrities flooded her comments with celebratory messages. Yara Shahidi and Kali Uchis wished her a happy birthday. Lori Harvey wrote, “Go crazy sisss,” followed by three fire emojis.
If there is something Normani will always do is slay. From her stage performances to her outfits on social media, the singer and performer never ceases to impress.
Happy birthday, Normani!
