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.
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~.
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.
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.
