Bella Hadid was continuing to make the most of her Cannes getaway on Monday as she was spotted stripping down to a sizzling bikini before heading for a PDA-packed lunch with her hunky new beau Marc Kalman.
The supermodel, 24, looked phenomenal in the slinky two-piece, which she wore beneath a floral and newspaper print kaftan by John Galliano, before she headed to lunch where her interest was far more focused on the art director’s lips than any food on offer.
And although only recently going public with their romance, it has now been claimed that Bella and Marc have secretly been dating for a year and managed to hide their blossoming relationship during the pandemic.
Wow! Bella Hadid was continuing to live it up in style on Monday as she was spotted stripping down to a sizzling bikini before heading for a PDA-packed lunch with the hunky art director
Bella looked nothing short of sensational as she sashayed around in the floral swimwear while soaking up the sunshine in Cannes.
The bikini bottoms appeared to be Nineties-inspired thanks to the classic shape and high-rise hip while the triangle bikini top was barely-there in size and helped make the most of her assets.
She let her raven hair fly loose as she peeled off her bold kaftan which she later wore to lunch, where she was seen locking lips with Marc and cradling his face in between enamoured looks of love.
Marc – who was first romantically linked to Bella in June – was equally invested in the smooching session as they sat among pals in their passionate clinch following the confirmation of their romance.

Bella went Instagram official with new boyfriend Marc last week when she shared a snap of them kissing while in Cannes. Referring to her time with Marc and being at the Film Festival, she wrote in the caption of the post: ‘Time of my life. Healthy, Working and Loved.’
Speaking to E!, a source said: ‘[They] have been trying to keep it super low-key and private. Now that they have become more serious, she has been excited to be seen with him. She is truly so happy right now.’
However, Bella and Marc’s steamy lunch date comes amid claims that they’ve been secretly dating for a year and managed to keep their blossoming romance under wraps during the Covid pandemic.
A source told Page Six on Tuesday that the loved-up couple have been secretly dating since July 2020, with Bella’s Instagram post to confirm their relationship potentially marking their first anniversary.
The source said: ‘They hid it well. If they went out, he would come out first, get the car, and then she would get into the car. They would drive to a location, and he’d drop her off but not get out and go park the car.
‘They were very diligent about not being seen on a public street at the same time.’
Wow: She looked incredible in the floral ensemble which left little to the imagination thanks to its tiny size

The insider continued that Bella and Marc may not have put a label on their relationship right away, but that they tried to always go out with other people which ‘made it difficult to prove that they were dating’.
However, they continued that last summer Marc’s Porshe started being seen near Bella’s apartment regularly and that this made people think they were might be ‘hooking up’.
They also claimed that Marc was on the guest list for Gigi’s birthday party and went shopping with Bella for her sister’s gift, however he did not step out with the model siblings when they were pictured at a food truck.
MailOnline has contacted Bella’s representative for further comment.
Bella snap confirming her new love interest came as her ex The Weeknd, 31, was linked to Angelina Jolie, 46. The Weekend – real name Abel Tesfaye has been linked to Angelina after they were spotted leaving celeb hangout Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica just moments apart from one another last week.

While the pair are not known to be friends, there are some intriguing links between them, including the singer referencing Angelina’s famous pout in one of his hit songs.
Furthermore, The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez once famously crossed paths with Angelina’s ex-husband Brad, 57, back in 2016, while they were still married.
The National Enquirer had claimed that Brad ‘shamelessly flirted’ with Selena, 28, causing issues between him and Angelina, though the claims were denied.
The Oscar-winning actress shares six children with ex-husband Brad; Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15 and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivian.
Angelina filed for divorce in 2016 citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ and it was finalized in 2019. The former pair have been in a lengthy custody battle with the actress wanting sole custody and Brad fighting for joint.
