Victoria’s Secret’s 2016 Fashion Show will finally be here on Nov. 30, but there was a bit of a surprise reunion on Monday, when supermodel Bella Hadid and Canadian singer The Weeknd made a joint appearance before the upcoming Paris Fashion Show.
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd
Before hitting the Victoria’s Secret runway, Bella (sister of supermodel Gigi Hadid) and The Weeknd reunited in Paris at Hotel Costes, along with the rapper’s crew and Shooter star, Ryan Phillippe. Bella and a few of her friends went over to say hi to her ex-boyfriend and his friends. The Weeknd is in the city of love to perform at the Paris fashion show, while Bella is set to walk the runway with her sister Gigi.
The exes ended their 18-month-old relationship a few short weeks ago, and what better place to reunite than a romantic city like Paris?
“Bella sat next to The Weeknd and spoke for a little while to him. They were really cool with each other,” a source shared with E! News. “Bella was in a great mood, smiling and seemed really happy while being there.”
With the former lovers in the same fashion show later this week, fans were wondering if things might be awkward or tense between the two. But so far, all is well with Bella and The Weeknd, and the press can’t get enough.
“Bella was so excited that she’s walking in the Victoria’s Secret Show this year, and she knows it may be a bit strange having her ex perform,” the source continued. “She will be OK because she’ll have all her best friends there.”
Bella Hadid VSFS 2016 Preparation
Angel beauty, Bella, will be walking alongside her sister Gigi on Wednesday, and all eyes will be on the gorgeous duo.
“On the runway for high fashion you just don’t really think,” Hadid told People. “You just walk and it’s an everyday thing. You do so many shows a day that it’s kind of [like] you’re showing off the clothes.”
Bella admitted that she’s not a good smiler on cue, but we’re sure big sister Gigi can give her a few pointers before the big night. Still, the model has also been practicing that a lot, too.
Bella may just be experiencing a case of cold feet at the moment, but she is putting in the practice time by hanging a mirror on her roommate’s door in her apartment so she can perfect her smile, balance, and walk.
“It’s perfect for me, but she can’t really get out of her room,” she joked.
Who knew walking could be so hard?
