It's official! Nina Dobrev stepped out to support her boyfriend, Austin Stowell, at the NYC premiere of Bridge of Spies on Sunday, Oct. 4, marking the couple's first red carpet outing.

The ex-Vampire Diaries actress, 26, hit the carpet in a Versace LBD, accented with a red stripe and a thigh-high slit. She finished the ensemble with a poppy-print Charlotte Olympia box clutch, ankle-strap Casadei peep-toes, and glittering baubles by H.Stern.

Upping the ante on the romance, Dobrev, who previously dated her VD costar Ian Somerhalder for three years, added a complementary crimson statement lip and romantic curls, which she parted to one side.

Meanwhile, her beau, 30, who costars opposite Tom Hanks in the historical film, looked especially handsome in a crisp black suit, which he teamed with a gray shirt, a high-shine slate tie (accented by a tie pin!), and lace-up shoes.

While the actress refrained from sharing any photos from the glam date night via social media, she did share one update from The City That Never Sleeps: a funny photo of herself cheesing it up with Aaron Paul's wife, Kind Campaign co-founder Lauren Paul, and emojis. She captioned the snap, "Big apple shenanigans."
