Bella Hadid finally made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut on November 3o in Paris. The 20-year-old strutted the catwalk amid ex-boyfriend The Weeknd’s performance, but was able to keep her composure.
She sported several different looks, including this glitzy angel outfit complete with feathers. In true Victoria’s Secret style, Bella’s looks packed all the glamour associated with the famed show. She wore her long, dark hair down as she paraded her various sexy outfits.
Bella and The Weeknd, a.k.a Abel Tesfaye, were seen locking eyes for a brief moment as the model walked the runway. While things may look tense between the two, they claim the breakup was amicable as they remain friends, reports Us Weekly.
“They still have a great deal of love and respect for each other and will remain friends, but it has been too hard to coordinate their schedules with him finishing and promoting his upcoming album.”
The couple broke things off earlier this month, according to Us Weekly, after two years of dating. They blamed their busy schedules and not having enough free time together; however, some are saying the breakup was just a rumor as the two still look very much in love.
The singer could hardly take his eyes off Bella as she strolled past him wearing a metallic grey corset and cape, and not much else, reports People. Hadid herself is seen giving her alleged ex a smirk as she continued with the show. Some fans have taken to social media to say Bella and The Weeknd’s vibes at the Fashion Show are proof they’re still in love.
“You guys, I think @theweeknd isn’t over @bellahadid. Here’s proof. #vsfashionshow”
In fact, Cosmo dug up a list of tweets from Bella and The Weeknd fans talking about the encounter. It seems Hadid’s fierce runway looks are taking a backseat to her relationship status for the time being. Despite casually strolling by her ex while clad in Victoria’s Secret lingerie, Bella seems to have stolen the show as she makes headlines post-runway.
She and older sister Gigi Hadid, who also walked in the VS Fashion Show, posed backstage in pink robes. The sisters are living out their dreams as their mom Yolanda Foster shared a sweet throwback photo.
Yolanda posted the image of both girls wearing angel wings before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in support of her daughters. She followed it up with an image of Gigi and Bella wearing their 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show shirts as they walk arm-in-arm. Of course, fans are equally excited to see the younger Hadid sister earn her place in the show this year as well.
Fans took to Instagram to share their joy for Bella and Gigi through comments on Yolanda’s photo.
“They looks amazing. All I keep thinking though is how incredible Bella looks and how much she deserves the spotlight.”
And to let Yolanda know just how lucky she is to be their mom.
“Most gorgeous girls ever… you’re so lucky.”
Bella documented her first Victoria’s Secret show with plenty of Instagram posts, including this one with Kendall Jenner. Hadid was also reportedly seen scrolling through photos of her and The Weeknd while on the plane, but this has yet to be confirmed, according to Teen Vogue.
If the breakup rumors prove to be true of Bella and the singer, at least she can say she finally walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and completely owned it. However, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out on whether or not she and The Weeknd are truly over.
