For some reason, whenever a celebrity couple splits, the female half of the relationship is painted by the media as being sad and solitary. Well, not-so-newly single Bella Hadid is having none of it, telling InStyle that, essentially, she is so happy that she’s eating which, we guess for a model, is a thing. In her exact words, she told the magazine, “When you’re happy, you want to eat and experience and enjoy life. I’m there! And I’m eating, and I’m living! And I’ve gained a couple pounds, but I’m good!” We jest, but actually we can relate to experiencing a drop in appetite post-breakup which rebounds nicely once you’ve recovered from the separation. We also agree that doing things like gelato hunts—which she posted herself attempting in Venice, Italy recently on Instagram—is evidence that you’re living you’re best life. (As if being a 19-year-old, rich-and-famous supermodel weren’t proof enough.) It seems she’s traded The Weeknd for ice cream and no, we don’t think that’s in any way, shape or form a downgrade. If you’d like to do the same, and in a way that best approximates the life of a Victoria’s Secret model, we suggest you start with this rosé version.
Also notable from this interview is Bella’s assertion that she bought her own apartment at age 18, with her own money. As this is something we feel as though we’ll never be able to do, even at twice her age, we’re seeing it as all the more reason to indulge in rosé, with or without the ice cream. Cheers to you, and your success (and gelato), beautiful Bella!
