To walk from Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is probably the dream of every model. For Stella Maxwell, this dream became reality in 2014 when she walked for the brand and then took her place among other breathtaking Victoria’s Secret Angels the following year.
Beyond her VS magic, the Belgian-Irish beauty was also featured in advertising campaigns and photo sessions for several top brands such as H&M, Urban Outfitters, Marc Jacobs, Puma, Glamour, Elle, Vogue, and Ermanno Scervino. Her sexual orientation and all those with whom she was romantically involved also attracted a lot of attention in her life. More details can be found below.
Stella Maxwell’s Bio
Although she was born in Belgium, Stella Maxwell has her ancestors in Northern Ireland. Her birth took place in Brussels, Belgium, where her Northern Irish parents welcomed her on May 15, 1990. Her parents – Stella Maynes and Maurice Maxwell, a former diplomat – raised her in Belgium with three older siblings (Patrick, Martin, and Helen).
She studied at the European School in Woluwe before the family moved to Canberra, Australia, when she was thirteen. The next year they moved again, this time to Wellington, New Zealand, where Stella continued her education at Queen Margaret College and the University of Otago. During her time at college, she was scouted and later became a model.
Modeling turned out to be what Stella is really made for, as she did a great job walking the glittering catwalks and making advertising and cover appearances to the delight of fans. Her biggest performance to date is running for Victoria’s Secret at the fashion icon’s show in 2014, her contribution was recognized, and a year later (2015) she was named Victoria’s Secret Angel – an honor that every model looks forward to. Apparently, the blonde bombshell was on a roll when she was voted No. 1 on Maxim’s “Hot 100 List” in 2016.
In addition to the catwalks, Stella Maxwell has also signed sponsorship deals with several top brands and writes editorials and photoshoots for fashion magazines like Bullet, Dress to kill, and Madame Figaro. For her efforts and dedication to her modeling career, Stella Maxwell has an estimated net worth of $1 million, consisting of her salary of $120,000.
Is Stella Maxwell A Lesbian, Who is The Partner – Kristen Stewart?
Stella Maxwell is one of those celebrities who are not afraid to share their romantic life with the general public. She is openly a lesbian, and her partner is none other than the award-winning Twilight star and model Kristen Stewart.
Before Kristen came along, Stella was romantically involved with pop superstar and actress Miley Cyrus in 2015. The pansexual singer rejected the claims, but they seem to be very close friends.
In 2016, Stella Maxwell and Kristen Stewart became a couple and have been together ever since. In a way, they confirmed speculations about their relationship when they met during a romantic trip to Milan for a kiss. Kristen, for her part, is known for swinging in both directions when it comes to sexuality.
The Los Angeles-based actress has dated several of her co-stars, including Michael Angarano, her co-star in Speak, and Robert Pattinson, her love interest in the Twilight film series. Her relationship with Pattinson was widely publicized, but in July 2012 she got into trouble. The breakup was linked to a photograph showing the actress in an intimate position with Rupert Sanders – the director of Snow White and the Hunter, who was not only a married man at the time, but also 19 years ahead of Kristen in terms of age. When their illicit affair became public knowledge, both Stewart and Kristen publicly apologized to all concerned.
Kristen explored the other side of her bi-sexuality and later went out with visual effects producer Alicia Cargile, Soko, the popular French singer-songwriter, and another musician, Anne Erin Clark, better known professionally as St. Vincent. Before the end of 2016, Kristen and Stella Maxwell formed a friendship and enjoyed a drama-free relationship.
In July 2017 the couple surprised another lesbian couple – Kirsten and Kayleigh Jennings at their wedding in Canada. From 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. they danced and mingled with the other guests at the wedding reception, which took place at the Pizzeria Gusto in Winnipeg.
