Dua Lipa, 27, cosies up to Rita Ora’s ex Romain Gavras, 41, as they make their red carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival – weeks after confirming their romance
Dua Lipa and her new boyfriend Romain Gavras looked very loved up as they made their red carpet debut at the 76th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Friday evening.
The New Rules songstress, 27, confirmed she was dating filmmaker Romain, 41, who is Rita Ora’s ex, back in March.
The couple has so far kept their relationship very private – but smacked on the PDA at the screening of Omar La Fraise (The King Of Algiers).
Dua put on a very sultry display in a black gown from Celine by Hedi Slimane, embellished with several oval cut-outs to expose a racy flash of her skin – complete with a high slit up her leg.
As she turned, her side-profile showed a glimpse of her assets while a criss-cross pattern across her back revealed yet more flawless skin.

Her raven tresses were styled in an elegant up-do, with her locks pulled back into a high bun, while trendy bangs swept across her forehead.
She opted for classic glamorous make-up to accentuate her beauty, including a nude lip, while adding a gorgeous pair of dangling earrings.
Meanwhile Romain looked very dashing in a black suit – but all his attention was on his Don’t Start Now star girlfriend as he couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Back in March, sources claimed the pair had been ‘quietly getting to know each other for months,’ following her split from Anwar Hadid in 2021.
