Following (and keeping up with) celebrity relationships can be tricky. Whether it's friends that turn into enemies or a power couple torn down by a bad breakup, there's always a lot going on. To make sure that you're always in the know, it's a good idea to keep up with your favorite celebs on social media. For instance, if you follow Selena Gomez, you'll notice that Selena Gomez's dress in her "Wolves" music video is the same one that Bella Hadid once wore. It's time to figure out what that means.
Selena Gomez released her music video for "Wolves" on Friday, Nov. 17. As soon as fans started watching, they noticed something interesting. Gomez appears to be wearing a low-cut plunging silver dress that looks very similar to one worn by Bella Hadid at Paris Fashion Week earlier this summer. The reason it looks so similar is because it's the same exact dress.
This could just be a coincidence, but given the history between these two, there's a possibility that it could be something more — so let's dig in a little, shall we?
Here is the Alexandre Vauthier dress on Gomez in her music video (left) and on Hadid walking the runway at Paris Fashion Week (right).
So, the dress itself is a beautiful and sparkly silver getup with a deep V-plunging neckline. Gomez has actually worn the dress before it was spotted in this music video. Back in August, Gomez's stylist posted a picture of her in the dress in an Instagram story, and Hadid wore the sparkly number at Paris Fashion Week in July. It's safe to say this dress is making the rounds, but I'm more interested as to what the dress means about what's going on between Gomez and Hadid, if anything.
Here is a photo of the dress from the "Wolves" video.
Now, it's no secret that Gomez and Hadid have both dated The Weeknd. Hadid was dating the The Weeknd until they broke up last year in Nov. 2016. Gomez began dating The Weeknd not long after that, and their relationship seemed all but confirmed when they were spotted sharing a post-date kiss in January 2017. Gomez and The Weeknd recently broke up, but while they were together, it was basically a shade-fest involving Gomez, The Weeknd, and Hadid.
Soon after Gomez and The Weeknd made their relationship official, the couple decided to unfollow Hadid on Instagram in March 2017. How did Hadid respond? She hit a couple "Unfollow" buttons of her own, and ousted Gomez and The Weeknd's Instagram feeds from her "Following" group.
There was never any word from the three involved why there was a mass unfollowing, but fans notice everything, and they were not going to let this slip on by as a mere coincidence. There was some speculation that Hadid felt betrayed by Gomez when she began dating the Weeknd, so it's possible that Hadid just didn't need to see this new romance unfold on social media.
Even though all of that love triangle drama feels so long ago now that Gomez and The Weeknd have broken up — and that Gomez seems to be back on with Justin Bieber — it's so easy for it to come screaming right back when little details like this identical dress pop up. Of course, you could try to read into something more sinister than coincidence, but there doesn't seem to be anything that supports a dress feud between Gomez and Hadid.
Maybe they just have really similar tastes — in dazzling gowns and famous ex-boyfriends.
