After months of ‘are they or aren’t they?’ speculation about the romantic status of Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford’s relationship, the musicians have confirmed they, indeed, very much are.
On Saturday night, Eilish and Rutherford, the lead vocalist of alternative rock band The Neighbourhood, made their red carpet debut as a couple at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles. Not only that, but they made their red carpet debut in matching couples outfits — Eilish style.
Walking onto the red carpet wrapped in a large, quilted Gucci blanket, the pair weren’t afraid of PDA, giggling together and cuddling as they posed for photos.
Underneath their blanket, Eilish and Rutherford both wore top-to-toe ‘fits from the Italian fashion house with the 20-year-old Bad Guy singer in a silk slip dress with lace trim and thigh-high splits showing matching tights.
On her feet, she wore a pair of similarly patterned platforms, adding a silk dressing gown over the top and layers of silver necklaces around her neck.

Adding to the cosy theme, Eilish wore a Gucci eye-mask as an accessory, over the top of her fresh black bangs and matching heavily-lined bed-eyes.
For his part, Rutherford went the extra mile in a silk pyjama set by Gucci and slippers.
Two things are clear: the pair, who have received backlash over their 11-year age gap (Rutherford is 31) since they were first spotted holding hands in LA last month seemingly couldn’t care less about the public’s opinion about their romance…. and the other? Cuffing season has well and truly begun — cosy style.
