Bella Hadid has shared her mental health struggles and various avant-garde looks freely via Instagram and in interviews, but one thing she’s kept private is her relationship status. For over a year, the model has reportedly been quietly dating art director Marc Kalman. And though she has posted pictures of him to her Instagram Stories before, there’s never been anything officially on the record.
But a picture is worth a thousand words, and the pair were papped looking every bit the serious couple at Milan Fashion Week. They’re even wearing basically the same pair of shoes.
A Chanel bag in one hand, a boy in the other. We should all be so lucky, Bella!
So who is Marc Kalman, anyway? First of all, he either doesn’t have an Instagram or doesn’t use his name on it, I already checked. The good folks over at Elle found his finsta back in July, but he either deleted or changed it since, probably because it showed up in that article. The same article reports that Kalman has worked with brands and artists including Travis Scott, boyfriend/baby daddy to Kylie Jenner, sister of Kendall Jenner, who often walks runways with Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi. So there’s a connection.
According to his website, he was previously a fashion assistant at The New York Times and its style publication T Magazine. So he’s wearing a vest over a hoodie for fashion reasons, not weirdo reasons, okay? Okay.
While in Milan, Hadid also walked the runway at the Fendi show, proving that tiny sunglasses and “wet look” hair are perfect for any occasion.
