Everything you need to know about the art director.
Love is in the air for Bella Hadid and Marc Kalman.
Supermodel and Kin Euphorics‘s friend seemed to confirm her connection to the director of art in 2021 through numerous social media posts with PDA-filled romantic images. Since then, the couple has been seen out and around throughout New York City, Paris, and Milan.
Kalman is Hadid’s first love since her on-and-off love affair with The Weeknd, which ended officially in 2019. “[Hadid and The Weeknd] are in different places right now, physically and mentally,” an insider said to E! News.
The man is an art director.
Alongside holding positions like “fashion assistant” to The New York Times and T Magazine, Kalman is not a stranger to the world of fashion and celebrity and has created Made Fashion Week’s signature as well as Travis Scott’s album cover, in addition to other notable jobs, Page Six reported.
Although the artist isn’t well-known on social media and has an account that is private on Instagram, he has gained followers on the platform from people like fashion model Virgil Abloh, musician Diplo, and fashion model Fai Khadra.
Bella is determined to keep their relationship secret.
The model has spoken out about her efforts for her friendship with Kalman secret.
“I think that’s why things have been able to last,” she told of her boyfriend of two years, which seems to be in stark contrast to her previous relationship that was a major focus for The Weeknd. “When you give other people room to have opinions on things so personal to you, it poisons it.”
The two first started to spark romance rumors in July 2021.
While traveling to France to attend Paris Fashion Week and the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, Hadid uploaded a photo to Instagram, which gave her viewers a glimpse of her hectic schedule of engagements for the week. The pictures featured were of her posing in front of the ocean in a daring pink plaid dress and, perhaps most intriguingly, the final image in a romantic relationship with Kalman.
The caption read, “Time of my life … Healthy, Working and Loved.”
They became acquainted through mutual friends.
As per The Sun, Hadid and Kalman were introduced by mutual acquaintances and first seen together in June 2021 while having lunch at a restaurant in New York City.
