What could be better than running into your ex while you’re literally strutting down the runway in your sexiest underwear?
During a runway run-in at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris, Bella Hadid hands-down won her breakup with singer The Weeknd. The exes met onstage; he crooned; she posed; we cried—and things will never be the same.
It was the sort of moment that makes you grateful for the chaotic beauty of 2016, warts and all.
Possibly better than the run-in itself is what the Internet has made of the tender/hostile/awkward/romantic moment (folks aren’t sure how to interpret it just yet). Since Wednesday incident, loyal Bella + The Weeknd shippers have hit their stride on social media and have been pouring their analytic and comedic skills into an abundance of brilliant tweets and memes.
