But the 20-year-old had her sister Gigi Hadid for support during the awkward encounter, with the siblings holding hands and giving each other a knowing look as they passed the “Starboy” singer on the runway. It was the second time that Bella encountered her ex on the runway since their breakup, with the singer also performing during her debut at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November.

STORY: Bella Hadid had the best reaction to The Weeknd's romance with Selena Gomez

Bella has previously admitted to struggling following her break-up from The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye - who has since started dating Selena Gomez. "It was my first break-up… and so public," Bella told Teen Vogue. "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. It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through."

Luckily for Bella, Selena wasn't at the show on Wednesday, but was spotted with Abel at La Reserve Hotel in Paris on Monday, which isn't far from where the model is staying. Bella and Gigi have both been in the French capital for several days ahead of Paris Fashion Week, and she appears to have been having lots of fun after work. As well as enjoying a fun-filled day out at Disneyland Paris earlier in the week, Bella also let her hair down with friends Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Lily Donaldson and Joan Smalls on a night out in Paris on Wednesday night, which she documented for her fans on Instagram.
