Stella Maxwell has shared her top tips for Valentine’s Day dates for both couples and single people.

The fashion model, who is the face of Max Factor and a Victoria’s Secret Angel, has been in a relationship with Twilight actress Kristen Stewart since late 2016.

While the duo won’t be spending 14 February together this year (18), due to their work commitments, Stella has plenty of ideas for fun ways to spend the romantic occasion.

“Let’s start with a nice day in nature, maybe a hike or a stroll through the park, followed by a glass of wine outdoors,” she told W magazine of her ideal date. “That can lead into a nice light meal and perhaps some live music. I love seeing the symphony play at the Hollywood Bowl. It is beautiful listening to music under the stars.”

As Stella is busy with New York Fashion Week, and walked the runway at the Zadig & Voltaire show on Monday (12Feb18), she won’t have time to slot in a date night. However, she does plan to indulge in a nice bath, some candles and a FaceTime session.

Though the 27-year-old is now loved-up with Kristen, she also admitted that one of her best Valentine’s Day dates was actually when she was single and simply spent time with some pals, where they chatted and played board games. And she advises single people to seek out some friends and do the same.

“If you find yourself alone this Valentine’s Day and it’s hurting your heart, just get together with some friends and smile and laugh,” the blonde star shared. “Celebrate yourself; make it a ‘me day’ instead of ‘V-day.’ Love will find you in one way or another. Always believe that. I believe you attract people with energy and confidence.”

Katie Grand’s notoriously sexy Love Advent will be different this year (18) in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Ever since a group of women accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse in October 2017, a wave of actresses and models, female and male, have come forward with their own stories of sexual misconduct.

In fashion, Cameron Russell and Edie Campbell have been leading voices in the fight against mistreatment, with Love editor Katie throwing her full support behind the changes taking place in the industry.

“Love Advent was shot for fun, with full collaboration of all the models involved,” Katie began in a chat with the London Evening Standard. “They were involved in the creative and what they wanted to do and we had 170 million views.

“Yes, (I would do it differently now), so much has changed since we shot this in September, we will continue to collaborate closely with the girls on any films we shoot for Love – Advent or otherwise.”

The 2017 offering featured, among others, Emily Ratajkowski rolling around in pasta while wearing lingerie, Stella Maxwell eating an ice cream and riding a stationary bike in her underwear and Barbara Palvin pole dancing.

Although she’s never seen anything untoward on a shoot, Katie admitted she was familiar with photographers demanding a lot of models.

“What I have witnessed a lot more of is (the model being told), ‘Oh, we’re going to shoot till four in the morning, we’re going to put you in a water tank and tie you up, so you can’t swim. You don’t mind, do you?'” she explained.

“Photographers generally don’t listen. You can say all you want, (or say), ‘You can’t do that.’ But if you’ve got 30 people standing there all saying, ‘It’s 10 o’clock, I’ve got a party to go to, and you say, ‘Oh, come on take your clothes off and get in the water tank’, the girl’s going to agree, unless she’s pretty strong. Lara Stone would tell you to f**k off. She did: on a shoot with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. They were some of the most iconic images we’ve ever produced.”
