After Months of Canoodling, Sabrina Carpenter and Barry Keoghan Make Their Cheeky Red Carpet Debut at the 2024 Met Gala

Beyond being a very talented actor and certified awards-season boyfriend, Barry Keoghan is also a serious Carpenter.

On Monday night, the Saltburn star made things officially official—as in, Met Gala red carpet-official—with his pop songstress girlfriend Sabrina Carpenter, as the two touched down at the museum together. Arriving simultaneously, the pair walked the carpet in a sleek Burberry suit and a floral-inspired frock by Oscar de la Renta, respectively, posing together at the top of the steps.

Carpenter’s Oscar de la Renta look included a black velvet bodice with a voluminous, double-faced, draped satin bouffant skirt, the latter detail drawing inspiration from an orchid. Keoghan’s Burberry suit, meanwhile, included an olive-colored velvet tailored jacket, a black pinstripe wool waistcoat, a ruffled silk poplin shirt, and tailored trousers. He accessorized with a black wool top hat and black leather oxford boots. (His ensemble combined Savile Row elements with Victorian-era flourishes, inspired by the character of Count Axel in J.G. Ballard’s short story “The Garden of Time.”)

So—how did we get here? After allegedly meeting in September 2023, at Givenchy’s spring 2024 show in Paris, Keoghan, 31, and Carpenter, 24, were first photographed à deux that December in Brentwood, Los Angeles, on a dinner date. (While Carpenter had previously been linked to singer Shawn Mendes, Keoghan had recently parted ways with Alyson Kierans, his girlfriend of a few years, with whom he shares a baby son.) After being papped in Los Angeles again in January 2024—this time at Luna Luna—they technically made their first real public appearance together at W magazine’s Grammys after-party in February, although they walked the carpet separately.

In the following weeks, Keoghan entered his Travis Kelce-esque-supportive-beau phase of their courtship. After being spotted in Singapore, waiting for Carpenter to finish her string of opening sets on Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, he was seen at an Academy Awards dinner in early March, sporting a friendship bracelet with her name on it.

A month later, Keoghan also stood adorably by at Coachella, studiously filming as Carpenter performed during weekend one. His attention was duly rewarded: The following week, in rather a Swiftian move of her own, Carpenter changed the lyrics to the end of her song “Nonsense” to wink at one of Keoghan’s most infamous scenes in Saltburn, singing, “Made his knees so weak, he had to spread mine. He’s drinkin’ my bath water like it’s red wine.” (Cue blood-curdling screams from the audience.)

What can we say? Now that they’ve gone from furtive Los Angeles dinners to striding the Met steps side by side, Keoghan does indeed look very cute wrapped ’round her finger.
