Matching black velvet opera gloves were the accessory of the moment, whilst silver and diamond jewellery peppered the all-black look. The actress’ recently chopped bob was slicked back and her blunt curtain bangs split into a parting for a decidedly futuristic look.

A nude lip and a smokey eye completed the beauty look, but the best accessory of the night? Her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi, on her arm.

If the name sounds familiar, it should. Jake Bongiovi is the son of none other than super star singer Jon Bon Jovi.

Although Bobby Brown captioned the snap ‘bff <3’, the relationship was seemingly confirmed in another Instagram post in November 2021, of Bongiovi giving MBB a kiss on the cheek during a spin on the London Eye.

Either way, the young duo seem smitten, having spent the Christmas holidays and the actress’ 18th birthday together, and their debut red carpet appearance was a reflection of that, with Bongiovi putting his arm around Bobby Brown’s waist as they smiled and posed for the cameras.
