The Hollywood sensation, who rose to fame while playing Joey Potter on the TV series "Dawson's Creek," recently made her red carpet official debut with Bobby Wooten III.

On Thursday, May 26, the lovebirds stepped out in their finest ensembles at the Moth Ball's spectacular 25th Anniversary Gala, held at the Spring Studios in New York City.

Katie Holmes Looks In Love As She Struts Down The Red Carpet With Boyfriend

As shared by PageSix, the "First Daughter" star and her musician boyfriend took their relationship to the next level by making their first red carpet appearance as a couple.

The lovebirds appeared to be head over heels for each other as they could not stop themselves from grinning from ear to ear while cozying up together, giving the paparazzi plenty to shoot.

For their special date night, Holmes looked stunning in an orange maxi dress crafted from crepe fabric with a pleating design that added elegance to the beautiful ensemble.

The dress's sophistication was enriched with a high collar, billowy sleeves, ruched waistline, and a flowing hem that stopped just before the actress's ankles.

The 43-year-old entertainer pulled back her signature brown hair, allowing it to fall down her back, and accessorized her classic look with gold drop earrings, a black clutch, and heeled sandals.

She kept the rest of her look simple, rocking her natural beauty by wearing minimal makeup, featuring a dash of black eyeliner and glossy pink lipstick.

On the other hand, the "The Secret: Dare to Dream" actress's boyfriend looked dapper in a black collared shirt worn under a forest green suit jacket and matching green trousers.

For his accessories, the 33-year-old bassist, best known for performing in David Byrne's "American Utopia" show, wore an eye-catching gold wristwatch, two gold rings, and black shoes.

The couple's red carpet debut came one month after the pair sparked relationship rumors with a PDA-filled stroll through New York City's Central Park, where they were captured sharing several steamy kisses.

Before the "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" actress kicked things off with the Grammy-nominated composer, the mother-of-one made headlines for her loving relationship with chef Emilio Vitolo Jr.

The former couple seemed unbreakable during their brief romance, which lasted for eight months until the pair ended their affair in May 2021.

This surprised many, as the exes never failed to show off their relationship and were frequently caught kissing all over New York City, including Central Park.

As for why the once inseparable pair took different paths, a source told the news outlet that the chemistry between the couple could not outweigh Holmes's priorities.

As a single mother, who shares daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, the 43-year-old could not move forward with her relationship with the celebrity chef while juggling her motherly duties.

Following her split from the celebrity restauranteur, The Blast reported that the "The Singing Detective" actress was no longer interested in prioritizing her dating life.

An insider claimed that the Hollywood sensation only wished to focus on her career and raising her daughter without distractions.

Nonetheless, the 43-year-old wanted to get back into the dating pool, but she planned on going with the flow rather than struggling to make a relationship work.

Taking things easy may have landed the "All We Had" star a loving boyfriend in the form of Wooten.

In April, the pair proudly flaunted their affectionate relationship for all to see while strolling through Central Park and sharing numerous kisses along the way.

During the casual outing, the pair were joined by the TV personality's mother, Kathy Holmes, who seemed to approve of her daughter's latest beau by wrapping the 33-year-old in a warm embrace.

According to a source, the musician had all the right cards to be the "Touched with Fire" actress's boyfriend, describing the entertainer as an "amazing, kind, super talented, and all-around cool guy."

The informant stated that despite Wooten's accomplishments as a bassist and musician, the Broadway star remained "as chill and brilliant and funny as they come."
