Bella Hadid walked the VSFS runway for the first time this year, accompanied by older sister Gigi Hadid. During the Victoria`s Secret Fashion Show live, supermodel Bella Hadid strutted past her ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd, which sent the internet into a frenzy. Several memes showed up on Twitter and Instagram, with many praising the moment of satisfaction that Hadid got while whirling past her ex, looking as stunning as ever.
Bella Hadid and the Weeknd dated for about two years before calling it quits due to their busy schedules, US Weekly reported. During the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show preparation, 20-year-old model Bella Hadid was fitted for a stunning sequined outfit that she walked in during the Bright Night Angel segment of the show.
Featuring over 6,000 crystals, the dress had wispy black feathers on either side of the waist, and feathered wings, making Hadid looked nothing short of angelic as she made her way down the Paris runway. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 air date is Monday December 5 (tonight!), at 10/9C on CBS.
With just over half of the VSFS 2016 looks having wings to match, not all the models were granted a pair. Wings are usually reserved for seasoned VSFS veterans, so Bella Hadid, a VS Angel for the first time, was ecstatic to be rocking a pair of the iconic Victoria’s Secret wings in her very first show.
“I can’t believe I have wings,” she told People. “It’s surreal! It’s crazy. The feathers were actually lighter than my actual outfit ’cause the whole outfit is all sequins,” she added. “They’re actually really comfortable, which is nice.” Bella Hadid’s VSFS wings were made of wispy black and grey feathers, matching those attached at the hip of her blue sequined top.
Hadid also walked in the fashion show’s Secret Angel section, where she wore a completely different set of lingerie. Losing the wings, the supermodel swapped her sequin- and feather-embellished outfit for a classy grey bra and corset, accompanied by sleeves and a long train. Equally obsessed with this look, Bella Hadid told Vogue, “I love the look so much ’cause I love corsets and I love tiny waists and they really cinched it in there. And I love that it has the long train because I think it’s really dramatic and beautiful. I’m really hoping I don’t step on it.”
Sharing the Victoria’s Secret catwalk with her older sister, Gigi Hadid, fans assumed the two would plan every moment of their shared VSFS experience. However, that wasn’t quite the case. Keeping her focus on her performance at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Hadid told Vogue that “we haven’t really talked about it … we like to keep work very separate, but I am sure when the time comes and it gets closer to the date, we’re gonna sit down and have a whole conversation about it. I just have to go and be the best me I can be.”
