It's good to be Bella Hadid.
Bella Hadid is having a great week. Not only was she one of the first to wear Maria Grazia Chiuri's new creations for Dior just weeks after they walked the runway, she was also basically confirmed to be walking for the Victoria's Secret show in Paris next month.
Word got out when Victoria's Secret staffer Jen Waldman posted a selfie with the model with the caption "One of us made the fashion show cut." The comments blew up, with fans writing "OMG she's in. She's walking!"
The official model lineup isn't out yet, but something tells us this one is a given. Will Bella be joined by sister Gigi and fellow Insta-girl Kendall? Place your bets.

Are you using it yet?
We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.

Meet the 26-year-old English actor.
Jack O’Connell will play Alexander McQueen in an upcoming biopic about the late designer. Here are five things you need to know about the English actor.
He’s tight with Angelina Jolie.
Jolie cast him in her 2014 movie, Unbroken, when he was just 23. O’Connell told ES Magazine that after he signed on, Jolie invited him and his friends and family out to a pub because she “wanted to meet my people.” Jolie speaks equally as highly of O’Connell, telling Entertainment Weekly “he’s fascinating to watch.”
His breakout role was on the British teen drama Skins.
From 2009 to 2010, O’Connell played James Cook, an outgoing but self-destructive teen. You can watch the series on Netflix RN. Try spotting Dev Patel, Nicholas Hoult and Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray, who all got their start on the show.
Acting wasn’t his first dream.
O’Connell had hoped to play professional soccer. (His maternal grandfather was a former player and helped him land a tryout for a professional team.) But a knee injury at 16 ended that dream. By then, O’Connell was already acting, but, as he told the Telegraph, he was unconvinced he would last in show biz and instead “wanted to join the army when football failed.”
He maybe, might have, perhaps dated Cara Delevingne.
The model and Suicide Squad actress was linked to O’Connell after the two were spotted hanging out in 2014. Although the two never officially confirmed their relationship, O’Connell did skirt around the topic when it came up with the Guardian, saying, “Look, I’m not single.”
He’s kind of a model.
O’Connell was the face of Prada’s Spring 2015 menswear campaign. We bet we’ll be seeing in him some McQueen verrrry soon.
Part of the fun of watching a Justin Timberlake/Jimmy Fallon skit is to see how long it takes one of them to laugh. We don't have to wait long this time. Just 41 seconds into a Camp Winnipesaukee bit on The Tonight Show, Fallon lets out his first giggle.
The skit basically summarizes all of our '90s camp experiences; the two play campers obsessed with "that new song they heard on the radio" – “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette.
Best friends forever.
