It seems model Sarah Talabi's time in the Valley was a success. 

While some of us were busy scanning the Coachella streaming schedule, she was busy locking lips with a certain Mr. Timothée Chalamet...allegedlly. 

Many decided to take a page from Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's book on PDA during the boho music and arts fest. Deepti and Kyle and Danielle and Nick from Love Is Blind were caught smooching, as were Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz, Alessandra Ambrosio and Richard Lee, etc. etc. 

But the Sarah-Timothée kiss is a little more elusive. When asked about the situation, Talabi had quite the unexpected clap back for those who were curious.

So...did they? Is this the start of a new romance? 

"We were all just hanging out and vibing with the music," she told PageSix (opens in new tab). "It was the greatest night of my life."

Then she continued, "Everyone is asking me if I was kissing Timothée Chalamet at Coachella, and that is a good question. But a great question would be asking our world leaders why the Earth is now losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice each year due to global warming and why climate crisis reform has been completely ineffective."

Well, that was...not where we thought this was going. 

The model, author and activist has been vocal about many causes close to her heart. She's written TV specials, including Feminist Wear Pink and Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence. In May 2022, she and her sister Leah are releasing a book, The Intersectional Feminist (opens in new tab): How To Amplify Marginalized Voices In The Feminist Movement.

We're glad to see a young voice fighting for causes she believes in, but we're definitely still curious what's brewing between her and Chalamet. Looks like we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled—and reach out to our local elected officials about pressing issues—in the meantime.
