Gomez and The Weeknd were all smiles as they held hands, kissed and posed for photos. The actress wore a pink and white Coach dress with a thigh-high slit, lace detail and floral embellishment.

"So proud and grateful to @stuartvevers and @coach for tonight," she wrote on Instagram before thanking event chair Anna Wintour. "Thank you so much Anna for a beautiful event and for what you do."

E! News reported Gomez whispered "I love you" into The Weeknd's ear as they walked the red carpet. The couple were first linked in January following The Weeknd's split from Bella Hadid, who also attended the gala.

"[Selena] wants the world to know they're together," a source told Us Weekly in April. "She only does that when she's really dating someone."
