Here's yet another example of why being friends with young billionaire Kylie Jenner has some serious perks. Jenner threw her longtime friend Anastasia Karanikolaou the most over-the-top pool party imaginable to celebrate Karanikolaou's 22nd birthday. This birthday party had a strict neon pink bikini dress code and literally every type of Instagram-friendly pool float you could imagine. Jenner and Karanikolaou shared lots of photos of the bash and lots of pictures of them posing in their bikinis.
"It’s ya birthday it’s ya birthday bad bitch contest you in first place 🥇 💗💗💯💯🎉🎉" Jenner captioned one gallery of shots that got over 3.6 million likes.
There was additionally the tipsy, "when the tequila hits" pool float shot:

And the pool cabana come hither shot:
Jenner's Instagram Stories were part sentimental, with Jenner explaining how the two became friends in her first shot. They go way back to when they were just kids.
"So it all started when I met a beautiful bomb ass blonde at Barnes and Nobles. This was our first pic together before we were friends," she captioned the first shot. "Then soon after you became another sister. Stas [Karanikolaou goes by the name "Stassie"] basically lived with me growing up, and it was the 3 of us always." Jenner shared memories of Utah trips, old Instagram handles, and what the two did before they could drive (and Jenner could start that expensive car collection). "We went everywhere on these segways for years before we got our license," she wrote. There was a yacht kissing pic, and then some content from the actual birthday party.
One photo revealed that in addition to the typical rainbow pool floats, Jenner also had a gold dick one in there, because why not?
The girls also enjoyed cocktails inside:
And Jenner filled the house with balloons and treats for Karanikolaou:
That was all frivilous fun, but Jenner also, somewhat controversially, threw Karanikolaou a Handmaid's Tale themed birthday dinner, complete with costumes. The footage of it, given the show's dystopian premise, is a little twisted:
