Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber have a lot going for them: he’s now best known for playing Elvis Presley; She’s Cindy Crawford’s daughter. Yet while apart, they’ve already made their mark as individual style stars — and together they’re even better. The 31-year-old Oscar nominee and 21-year-old model’s joint red carpet appearances are a handy guide to updating classic Hollywood glamor for a new era. Butler tends to start with the classics: a crisp, tailored suit. But he’s not afraid to update it with, say, a bow tie or mesh top underneath. Gerber, on the other hand, loves nothing more than an elegant evening dress that exudes glamor but doesn’t seek to command attention. Either way, it’s good to know that Tinseltown has at least one young couple who know how to dress for a red carpet first and foremost, and not just for the photo they post on Instagram later.
Of course, their style aside, the couple always seem to get attention for the simple fact that they can’t help but look seriously smitten with each other during every public appearance. Here, a look back at all the times Butler and Gerber took to town together.
The duo were basically joined at the hip throughout the New York event.
2023 vanity lounge Oscar night
Although Gerber wasn’t Butler’s date for the Oscars, the couple did reunite on the after party circuit. Gerber wore a proper sparkly dress with a slit high on Celine’s leg. Butler, meanwhile, donned a Saint Laurent tuxedo with a tied silk blouse underneath.
2023 OIt is Best Performance Party
For our own annual Best Performances party, held in February at Chateau Marmont, Butler and Gerber coordinated in black. Hers was a crochet dress, hers a classic suit with the shirt collar left unbuttoned.
While the duo didn’t walk hand-in-hand on these famous steps, they couldn’t help but reunite at the top. Butler wore a custom Prada suit with a bolero jacket, while Gerber’s Alexander McQueen dress was offset by her particularly voluminous hair.
Once inside the museum, the couple seemed to stay close all night.
Cannes Film Festival 2022
Although they didn’t pose for photos together at the premiere of Elvis at the Cannes Film Festival, they couldn’t help slipping in a bit of PDA.
And although they walked separately, the pair were linked by the same designer: Gerber’s va-va-voom red dress was by Celine…
…and Butler’s classic black tuxedo was also courtesy of the French house led by Hedi Slimane.
2022 O Best Performance Party
One of the duo’s first public appearances was at O‘s 2022 Best Performances party, where they didn’t hesitate to bring some PDA. Some things never change.
