Selena Gomez and The Weeknd look in love during rare PDA-packed carpet appearance

Can’t keep her hands to herself! While Selena Gomez and her boyfriend The Weeknd rarely appear on red carpets together, they made an exception Friday night for a special evening. The talented couple, who have been dating since January, stepped out arm in arm for the Harper’s Bazaar celebration of Icons By Carine Roitfeld at The Plaza Hotel in NYC. Selena’s 27-year-old man was being honored at the New York Fashion Week event, and she seemed beyond proud. Cameras were flashing as the normally private pair put their romance on display.

In what marked their second red carpet walk together ever while dating, the loved up couple were joined at the hip. Selena and the Weeknd looked to be on a hot date night, rather than a fashion event, which was sponsored by Infor, Laura Mercier, Stella Artois, Fujifilm and Swarovski. No longer seeming to hide their affections, the two singers held hands and sweetly kissed as they waltzed down the Bazaar black carpet.

The 25-year-old Hands to Myself songstress looked elegant in a retro Valentino mini-dress. Her sixties-era number brightened up the evening with its powder pink color. As for accessories, the former Disney star held a crocodile skin Prada clutch and donned several shimmering Tiffany & Co. jewelry pieces. She opted for a pair of high Gianvito Rossi strap heels in red and to wear her chopped tresses half down and half up. Selena completed the stellar look with a spot of seashell pink lip-gloss and thick coats of mascara.

Her boyfriend nailed the fashion game as well. The Grammy-winner, who also performed at the lavish ceremony, glistened under the lights with his bedazzled blazer lapels. He caught onlookers’ eyes in a black velvet suit, completed with a bowtie. Later in the night, Selena channeled her talented love when she changed into an all black getup and put on his bejeweled jacket.

Selena and The Weeknd publicly confirmed their relationship when they happily stepped out together at this year’s Met Gala back in May. They were first spotted canoodling during a January dinner date in L.A. “It’s really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things,” Gomez said during a sit down with On Air with Ryan Seacrest in June. “It’s too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually… I just want to be happy. If that’s me just being myself, then I don’t really care.”
