Bella Hadid is ready to show the world how enamored she is with her boyfriend Marc Kalman.
A year after the model went Instagram official with her art director boyfriend in a since-deleted Instagram post, she’s back to sharing him on the grid. On July 3, Hadid shared two PDA-heavy photos with Kalman, in which they share a kiss and embrace. She left the post captionless for that casual vibe.
Before we go into more about the couple, though, can we please talk about Hadid’s outfit? In the Instagram pics, the model wears a pleated denim mini skirt with a yellow belt, an oversized track jacket, knee socks, skinny sunnies, and black and brown sneakers. With the popped leg pose (did anyone else immediately think of that one scene from Princess Diaries?) it’s really giving off ’90s cheerleader dating the skater boy energy.
This is a very rare sighting of Kalman on Hadid’s feed. Bella Hadid revealed her relationship with Kalman on July 2, 2021, though she has since removed their first grid photo from her feed. “Time of my life,” she captioned the series of photos at the time, per E! News. “Healthy, Working and Loved.” Prior to Kalman, Hadid famously dated Abel Tesfaye (a.k.a. The Weeknd) on and off between 2015 and 2019.
At the time, E! reported that Hadid and Kalman had been dating since the spring of 2020 and a source described the model as “completely smitten.” Though the source said the couple “have been trying to keep it super low-key and private,” they added, “Now that they have become more serious, she has been excited to be seen with him. She is truly so happy right now.”
In March, Hadid told Vogue that keeping their relationship private has allowed their romance to thrive. “I think that’s why things have been able to last,” she said. “When you give other people room to have opinions on things that are so personal to you, it poisons it.”
