Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner together on Saturday in Washington, D.C., officially making their red carpet debut. The Saturday Night Live actor joined the reality star as her guest at the dinner, which celebrates the work of White House journalists and the media.

Kardashian, 41, was invited on behalf of ABC after her new Hulu reality series The Kardashians debuted earlier this month. Their outing comes after they enjoyed the premiere of the follow-up to Keeping Up with the Kardashians together.

For Saturday’s event, Kardashian was in a form-fitting, silver Balenciaga Couture gown. Davidson, 28, played it cool in a black suit with matching sunglasses, a skinny tie and Vans shoes.

The couple, holding hands and accompanied by a stern-faced entourage, swanned down the center aisle of the massive, crowded ballroom more than an hour and a half after the dinner began as the catering staff struggled to get entrees served to almost 3,000 guests. Davidson kept his sunglasses on. And neither said anything as they made their way to their table.

The dinner was hosted by Trevor Noah. Other notable attendees included President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Ziwe Fumudoh, Billy Eichner, Judith Light, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Martha Stewart, Brooke Shields, Chris Tucker, Amy Schneider, Fran Drescher and J. Smith-Cameron, as well as multiple cabinet secretaries and other lawmakers and pundits.

The pair first began hinting at their relationship in late 2021 as they were seen spending time with each other at dinners and private gatherings after Kardashian’s SNL hosting debut. Kardashian even threw Davidson an extravagant birthday party in Palm Springs in mid-November.

In February, Davidson referred to Kardashian as his girlfriend for the first time publicly. In March, the couple became Instagram official after Kardashian posted a series of romantic photos with Davidson.

Kardashian has spoken candidly about the actor in various interviews, sharing new details of their relationship each time.

Last month, she opened up about the first time they met and the “little zing” she felt when they shared a stage kiss. In another interview, she also revealed that their favorite thing to do together is to “hang out and do nothing.”

“I think that, you know, sometimes things happen when you just least expect it. It was the last thing that I was really planning on,” Kardashian explained. “And so when it did happen, we were kind of, like, ‘Oh, my God, I wasn’t planning on this. And this isn’t even what I was thinking of,’ and it just makes it that much sweeter and so much more fun.”
