Let’s Get Into It

Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi were first spotted together in Sept. 2020, but they kept their romantic connection pretty quiet. At the time, a source explained that they were “definitely interested in each other” but were in no rush to make things official.

So they were off to a good start, but their first red carpet appearance wasn’t until a full year later on Sept. 25, 2021.

Gerber and Elordi made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures' opening gala in LA. And they looked seriously good together, which isn’t exactly a surprise considering they’re both models, but still.

They’re A Perfect Match

For the event, Gerber opted for a gorg Celine by Hedi Slimane dress, per ET. Although Elordi’s look was slightly less exciting (he chose a classic tux), it was also designed by Slimane and matched Gerber’s dress perfectly.

You know what they say: Those who choose fashion designers together, stay together.

Gerber and Elordi might have been on equal footing with their outfits for the event, but, in terms of jewelry, she definitely outshined him. (Sorry, Jacob!)

For the gala, she sported pieces from Tiffany's Victoria collection, and the sparkly necklace and earrings made a serious statement. Paired with Tiffany’s Soleste ring and Embrace ring, Gerber’s accessories were ~everything~.

They’re In ~Love~

In the red carpet photos, they look totally in love... which makes perfect sense because they are. “[H]aving a safe, steady relationship [with Elordi], has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of love and what it feels like to love without conditions," Gerber told Vogue in May 2021.

On Sept. 16, Gerber posted a series of photos from her 20th birthday celebration on IG, including a sweet pic with Elordi.

So it’s not exactly a new phenomenon to see the duo together. Still, it was exciting to see them in their element as they took on the red carpet as a couple.

They Weren’t Glued To Each Other All Night

Though they walked the carpet together, Gerber and Elordi did make sure to mix and mingle while at the event.

Since the invite list was full of stars (including Sarah Paulson, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Nicole Kidman), there was no shortage of interesting people to see.

Though Gerber and Elordi attended the event together, that doesn’t mean they’re ready for a full-on public relationship. And that was very clear hen Elordi posted about the night on IG.

In the post, he used a solo shot and didn’t mention his date. “Cheers @academymuseum [...] A brilliant evening celebrating the history of cinema. Here’s to its future,” his caption read.

Here’s hoping there’s more to come...

All things considered, I cannot wait for their next red carpet event. IMO, the way that they look at each other is too cute, so I’m going to need a repeat immediately.
