Summer 2017 has been absolutely sizzling, but school break is quickly coming to a close. Before we plan our outfits for the first day back from vacation or we buy our supplies for the next semester, J-14 is holding a vote for the Hottest Couple of Summer. We want to know which relationship you think was the best of the season!
We've broken down our faves into four categories: Power Couples, Web Star Couples, Pop Star Couples, and TV Star Couples. The polls are officially open, so scroll down to the bottom to support your top pick. The winners from each category will face off in the final round. Ready?
Voting for Round 1 closes on August 22, 2017 at 6pm.
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller are longtime friends turned couple goals. Ariana and Mac first met online through a Twitter convo back in 2012. In other words, Mac literally slid into Ariana’s DMs. After that, the two artists decided to collaborate on a couple of singles, from a cover of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to “The Way.” Since becoming a couple, Ariana and Mac have been so supportive of each other in their careers and lives. Their relationship reached new heights this year when Mac was the most supportive BF ever to Ariana, as she worked through the trauma of the Manchester Arena bombings.
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd
If we’re being real, we still lowkey picture Selena Gomez with Justin Bieber (RIP Jelena). But it’s so obvious that The Weeknd (real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) makes Selena happier than she’s ever been before. Rumors of the hot new couple started circulating early this year, when Selena and The Weeknd showed some serious PDA in January at an arcade. Pictures also circulated of the couple on a trip to Italy and spending quality time together at Coachella. Selena and The Weeknd made their relationship Insta official in April, and have since been totally adorable at the Met Gala and on Selena’s birthday.
Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell
Robert Pattinson, who?! Kristen Stewart has been repeatedly spotted with Stella Maxwell for a long time now, though the couple definitely chooses to conceal their relationship from the media. Fans speculate that Kristen and Stella might have met at the 2016 Met Gala. Since then, the paparazzi have caught the twosome holding hands and kissing on multiple occasions. However, the first evidence that they’re official didn’t come until January of this year, when Kristen and Stella took a romantic getaway together to Milan. We totally have to respect this relationship, which clearly is more about the love they share than the cute and coupley pictures that they take.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are hands down the most fashionable couple of all time. Zayn met Gigi in early November 2015 at a Victoria’s Secret party. He recognized the model and went up to her at the event. Though this was only a couple of weeks since her breakup with Joe Jonas, Zayn asked Gigi out to dinner. Since their first date, Zayn and Gigi have starred in a Vogue photo shoot and the "Pillowtalk" music video together. Gigi has also been super supportive of Zayn as he battles his anxiety, helping in whatever ways she can. What a good girlfriend!
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
One thing is for sure: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been through A LOT together, only to come out stronger on the other side of everything. Miam met in 2010 on the set of their movie The Last Song. The couple was engaged in May 2012, but later called it off in September 2013. After taking a break to grow individually and to fall back in love with each other, they started dating again in December 2015. Most recently, Miley released her hit song “Malibu” for Liam, with lyrics that express her endless love for her forever best friend. Cute!
