Vogue editor Anna Wintour appears to have confirmed her relationship with Love Actually star Bill Nighy as the pair walked the red carpet together at the Met Gala.
Wintour, 73, plays a big part in the annual event as she oversees not only its theme, but also the list of guests who'll be able to dress in their fanciest - or simply most headline-worthy - outfits to attend.
The journalist has been in charge since 1995, but this year she had a new companion in tow in the form of 73-year-old Nighy.
It's not the first time the pair have been spotted together, as they previously sparked romance rumours in 2021 when they were seen on an apparent date night in Italy.
Photos snapped by onlookers at the time showed Nighy buying some roses for Wintour before they sat down outside a restaurant to eat.
Their most recent appearance together was much more deliberate, as there was no way they could avoid the cameras while they walked the carpet of one of the most highly-anticipated events in fashion.
Dressed in a simple black suit, Nighy walked arm-in-arm with Wintour as she showed off a white, patterned Chanel dress.
The pair didn't make any comments about their decision to attend together, but members of the public certainly have.
Many are convinced their appearance is confirmation of their romance, with one excited Twitter user writing: "BILL NIGHY ANNA WINTOUR COUPLE REVEAL?????? this is the thing i care about btw."
Another added: "How did I not know Bill Nighy and Anna Wintour were a couple."
The pair were seen together on another occasion last December, when they were photographed alongside Hugh Jackman at a screening of Nighy's recent film, Living, which earned him an Oscar nomination.
However, in spite of their multiple appearances together, Nighy has previously refused to confirm whether they're officially an item.
When asked about their relationship in 2015, Nighy told MailOnline: "Obviously I have nothing to say about that. There are a lot of rumors about me and probably about Anna Wintour.”
Wintour was married until October 2020 to her ex-husband Shelby Bryan, who she'd been married to for 21 years before they decided to go their separate ways. She has also previously been married to child psychiatrist Dr David Shaffer, with whom she shares two children.
Nighy is previously known to have been in a relationship with English actor Diana Quick, with whom he welcomed a daughter before they split in 2008.
TYLA has attempted to contact representatives for Nighy and Wintour for comment.
