Dua Lipa has gone red carpet official with her new boyfriend, Romain Gavras, and we can't cope. The pair made their debut at the Cannes Film Festival, after rumours about them dating first began circulating back in February. And now she's posted him on Instagram, it's completely official!
Romain, a 41-year-old filmmaker from France, has directed music videos for Kanye West and M.I.A and he even used to date Rita Ora, before she went on to marry director Taika Waititi. Here's a look back at Dua and Romain's relationship, starting with the most recent update.
Dua shared a series of photos wearing a show-stopping red dress, from her 28th birthday celebrations on 22nd August 2023. As well as giving an insight into her birthday dinner, which showed a gorgeous table lined up next to a pool, Dua also gave a candid glimpse at her relationship to Romain with some PDA.

She also previously shared a couple of snaps of them together, hanging out on a boat with the caption "sailing through the Peloponnese ⚓️". Scroll to the third photo to see:
Now, for the rest of their relationship history from the beginning...
After being rumoured to be seeing Jack Harlow (he wrote a song about her including the lyric, “Dua Lipa, I’m tryna do more with her than do a feature,” FYI!) and Trevor Noah following her split from ex-boyfriend, Anwar, reports circulated saying Dua and Romain had been getting to know each other for a while.
A source told The Sun: “Dua and Romain have been quietly getting to know each other for several months. They have been enjoying spending time together. The pair met each other’s close circles over the festive period and have lots in common.
“Dua knows how important it is to find someone who understands her industry. She feels Romain totally gets it. They’re both really creative people.”
Dua was spotted holding hands with Romain after leaving a Saint Laurent Paris Fashion Week show in March, adding more fuel to the fire of rumours circulating around the couple.
20th May, 2023
The couple made their red carpet debut at none other than the Cannes Film Festival and they look so good in their matching black outfits.
Dua also posted him on her Instagram (nothing says a new relationship like a hard launch on social media), with the caption translated from French to: "Last night in Cannes with my sweetheart" - Too cute!
Her ex-boyfriend, Anwar Hadid (Gigi and Bella's little brother, FYI), didn't seem too happy about the news though and appeared to throw shade at the couple on social media. In one post, he wrote a sarcastic: "Have fun". In another – now-deleted – post, Anwar shared a selfie and said "trying not to find and kill him". Yikes!
