The Victoria’s Secret fashion shows are always a source of excitement, headlines and hashtags, but the latest show in Paris had the public especially worked up. Bella Hadid and The Weeknd bumped into each other on the runway following their breakup.
The model and singer ended their relationship of two years a few weeks ago and hadn’t seen each other since. If a reunion with your ex at the planet’s most high-profile fashion show isn’t in keeping with a thrilling celebrity love story, then nothing is.
This is one of those breakups that generates genuine sympathy, largely because the reason for ending it wasn’t a lack of love, but a lack of time in which to see each other. Yes, being a superstar has its downsides too.
“He’s the best and we’re still great friends”, Hadid explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m excited. It’s his second show, so I know he’s going to kill it. We’re all celebrating together”.
Unsurprisingly, when the first photos of the fashion show began to emerge, Twitter went into a frenzy.
the photos of Bella and the weeknd on the runway have actually stabbed my soul 💔

I’m more concerned with Bella Hadid and the Weeknd’s interaction at the VS Fashion show than I am with my own education

And it’s not only glances on the runway that are triggering rumours that the relationship ended prematurely. While Hadid was travelling to Paris for the show, she was snapped looking at an old photo of her and Tesfaye kissing.
#bellahadid looking at a photo of her and #abeltesfaye while on the VS plane yesterday. The pic she’s actually looking at is the one he’s kissing her cheek. note: their breakup has never been official confirmed by them/their people and theyre acting exactly as they always have so its totally just a rumour. I think its promo planted by VS for the show (aka its all a stunt) but either way I dont think its real. caught on snapchat: kellybellyboom1 #theweeknd #abella
When you’ve recently gone through a breakup, it’s about taking a moment to wallow in the misery. It happens to the best of us, and Hadid wasn’t going to be any different. Girl, we feel you.
But all the commotion on social media transcends mere gossiping, Hadid has achieved a dream which more or less all of us have had at one point in our lives: Running into your ex while looking like a FUCKING GODDESS.
