The 20-year-old model is "excited" to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show while her former boyfriend - who she split from in October after 18 months together - performs as there is "no awkwardness" between them.

Speaking to E! News, the brunette beauty said: "There is no awkwardness. He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance."

And Bella she even received a special good luck gift from the singer ahead of the fashion extravaganza in Paris on Wednesday (30.11.16).

A source said: "Bella and The Weeknd have been talking again. The Weeknd sent Bella something special to her room to wish her luck on her big day.

"He also spoke and texted her today and throughout these past few days in Paris. They are on great terms - not back together but still talking and are still in love with each other.

"They are looking forward to doing the show together!"

And Bella has no doubt the 'Starboy' hitmaker - whose real name is Abél Tesfaye - will "kill" his performance later today.

She said: "This is his second year performing, and I think he's going to kill it."

Meanwhile, there is growing speculation the former couple will rekindle their relationship in the future.

The source said: "Getting back together is possible in future. He has been really supportive with her."

Whilst another source added: "This is not the end. They know they needed to officially break things off for a while."

Meanwhile, the style icon "can't believe" she will be modelling alongside her older sibling and "best friend" Gigi Hadid.

Alongside a picture of Bella with her 21-year-old sibling skipping along hand in hand, which was posted to her Instagram account, she wrote: "can't believe I get to experience all of this with my best friend! i LOVE you! (sic)."
