Potential run-ins with our exes send us diving behind friends, light posts, mail boxes, moving cars, etc. – anything to avoid seeing them. Bella Hadid is far more mature. Remember when, three weeks after she and the Weeknd broke up, the model walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show while he was singing like it was NBD. She even gave him an friendly shoutout on Insta. See below.
I can't believe it! 💘💘💘 I was smiling SO HUGE on the inside I promise!!!! The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! 🎀🎀Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet. You KILLED it, as always 😍 ❤️ And not enough thank you's to @ed_razek @10magazine @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro and the whole VS family!!!💕🙏🏼💗🎀thank you for believing in me I love you all so so so much 💗💗💗💗
Now, the model's opened up about how she really felt. “It was my first breakup — or second, next to the horse [she gave up riding when she was 16] — and so public. As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily,” she told Teen Vogue. “It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through.”
Added the model, “But I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him. Sometimes you want to be sad about it or handle it differently, but at the end of the day, you never want to burn a bridge that you’ve fought so hard to build.”
Like we said, way more mature than us.
"I’m going to keep it pretty casual this year."
Victoria's Secret angel Taylor Hill has a low-key Valentine's Day planned this year. "I’m going to keep it pretty casual with some great NY pizza and a movie," she says.
Casual it may be, the supermodel will obviously still look fab (naturally). "I’ll probably go for a topknot," she says when asked how she will style her hair for the occasion. "It’s simple but still really cute and looks sophisticated without trying." Below, Hill tells us her beauty look and lingerie picks for V-Day, and reveals what she does to feel her sexiest before a date–even if she does just find herself at the back of a movie theatre, 'za in hand.
Are you hoping to receive anything special this year?
"I don’t really like getting material gifts from people! I would much rather receive a hand-written note or flowers."
Are you buying a gift for your BF?
"I think a nice cologne or a stylish tie."
Any tips for feeling sexy before a date?
"Pick an outfit you feel confident in and make yourself feel glam. I like to take my time getting ready so I’m not rushed or nervous. I also love listening to music beforehand, anything by Rihanna or Beyoncé puts me in such a good mood."
How are you going to do your makeup?
"I keep my look pretty simple, but will probably add a cat eye for a bit of drama. I usually like to keep my look natural and wear minimal makeup, so I can let my skin breathe a bit. I’m definitely going to wear my Tease fragrance too, because it’s so warm and sexy and makes me feel confident."
Lipstick or no lipstick on V-day?
"I say no lipstick, because touching up throughout the night can be hard."
Do you have any outfit ideas yet?
"I always feel sexy in bodysuits or teddies. Lately I think it’s really sexy and cool to wear lingerie as outerwear. I’ll wear something like the new Very Sexy Cross Back Lace Plunge Teddy tucked into black jeans with a blazer and feel really chic."

"I love wearing pink lingerie, because it makes me feel super flirty, without being too bold and in your face."
For the girls celebrating Galentine's Day this year–what would you suggest to wear for a night on the town with your best friends?
"Spending Valentine’s Day with your girls can be so much fun! It’s all about appreciating the people in your life and your friends are always there for you, so make sure you make them feel special too! I’ll usually wear black jeans with a crop top or t-shirt and probably a heeled bootie to dress it up a bit."

First women marched, and now, we strike. The date? March 8.
The organisers of January's Women's March on Washington (which then grew into a massive upswell of women marching in capitals and small towns alike across the world) have announced the date for their promised "Day Without A Woman", aka a general strike for women and their allies on International Women's Day.
Details on what this will actually look like—and how you can get involved—are still TBD, but the announcement helps flesh out some of the ideological background / reasoning about why this doing something like this matters now:
In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman. We ask: do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression? Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the futures of our children? We saw what happened when millions of us stood together in January, and now we know that our army of love greatly outnumbers the army of fear, greed and hatred. On March 8th, International Women’s Day, let’s unite again in our communities for A Day Without A Woman. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing more information on what actions on that day can look like for you. In the meantime, we are proud to support Strike4Democracy's #F17 National Day of Action to Push Back Against Assaults on Democratic Principles. This Friday, February 17th, gather your friends, families, neighbors, and start brainstorming ideas for how you can enhance your community, stand up to this administration, integrate resistance and self-care into your daily routine, and how you will channel your efforts for good on March 8th. Remember: this is a marathon, not a sprint. #DayWithoutAWoman #WomensMarch
