The rumor mill’s working overtime with talk that Miley Cyrus is definitely dating supermodel Stella Maxwell. Remember when Miley, 22, recently identified as bisexual? The relationship rumors started around that time and came to a boiling point overnight when Cyrus was spotted hooking up with the blonde supermodel on the set of her upcoming music video in Hollywood.
So, who is the leggy blonde suddenly popping up in all of Cyrus’ Instagram snaps? Here are four things to know about Miley’s new maybe-squeeze, Stella Maxwell.
1. She grew up in New Zealand.
Stella, 24, was born in Belgium to Irish parents, but grew up in New Zealand–the small island country with a total population of about 4.5 million people (roughly half the population of New York City.) Right now she splits her time between Los Angeles and New York.
2. She’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
At 5 ft 9 in, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and legs up to her ears, this girl has all the makings of a world-class supermodel. She started strutting down the runway at Victoria’s Secret in 2014, and when the lingerie giant appointed 10 new angels earlier this year, Maxwell made the cut. “The VS show was such a big show for me and my career. It was really cool to be involved. It’s kind of wild to check out the scene,” she told V Magazine.
3. She met Miley through Instagram.
Who says online dating doesn’t work, amiright? When asked about her new friendship with Miley and Miley’s BFF-slash-assistant Cheyne Thomas, Stella said: “We met through Grindr… Nah, joking. We met through mutual friends via Instagram, which is where Cheyne contacted me about taking some photos. It’s been a trip to hang out and see a little of their world. Felt very organic and right.”
4. She’s modeled for everyone from ASOS to Alexander McQueen.
She’s nabbed the coveted Victoria’s Secret Angel title, and scored numerous gigs with everyone from ASOS and Urban Outfitters to Alexander McQueen and Vogue, but Maxwell considers walking for Marc Jacobs and Jeremy Scott as her career highlights so far.
