Taylor Swift and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn were seen together at the Cats premiere in New York City on Monday evening.
It was reported by E! News that the 30-year-old singer walked the red carpet at the event solo. Therefore, fans were surprised to see the singer accompanied by her British beau when leaving the premiere.
The “London Boy” singer and The Favourite actor were seen together, holding hands and talking under a big umbrella that was held by a bodyguard, while walking out of Lincoln Center, where the premiere was held. Ever since the couple started going out in 2016, Taylor and Joe have yet to make a red carpet debut together.
The singer looked stunning in a satin red Oscar de la Renta number that had elegant floral prints all over it. She opted to style her hair in a perfect low bun and wore classic makeup — subtle eyeshadow, cat eyeliner, full-on falsies, light bronzer, and her signature red lipstick. Taylor added a pair of dazzling drop earrings to complete the look.
Joe, on the other hand, seemed to wear an outfit that complemented the singer’s dress — a teal green suit, cerulean blue dress shirt, and a blue necktie.
In the film, Taylor plays Bombalurina, a self-assured and flirtatious cat, in the movie adaptation of the famous stage show by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
It was reported that Cats was a very important project for the singer.
As revealed by People, Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button, Taylor’s beloved cats, all had an important role in the making of the film, as the three felines inspired Rebel Wilson’s character in the movie.
As was reported, Taylor knew her cats were not the kind of cats that she was “channeling” in her own role, as hers was “very athletic and sort of wild,” while she said her beloved felines are “beautifully round.”
“They’re fuzzy. They look like little lazy bears. They’re always taking naps,” she said. “They’re not the kind of cat that I’m playing. I think my cats would’ve been a perfect cat for Jennyanydots.”
Taylor has been in the Big Apple for a couple of days. On her birthday, December 13, the singer performed at iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball. Afterwards, Taylor — along with Joe — continued her birthday celebration at the Oscar Wilde restaurant in the city. The party was holiday-themed and full of celebrity guests like Gigi Hadid, Camila Cabello, Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds, Halsey, Martha Hunt, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Kevin Harrington, the members of 5 Seconds of Summer, Jack Antonoff, and more, as reported by Elle.
