Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox’s relationship has reached a milestone – the couple now live together.

“I’m loving it,” Dushku gushed to PEOPLE at the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree in Hollywood. “It works.”

Actor and former basketball player Fox, who walked the red carpet with his actress girlfriend, says cohabitating has “been great” so far. But besides spending more time with his leading lady, whom he’s been officially dating since last October, he says the best part is having his own personal stylist on hand around the clock.

“I look the way I look because our relationship is strong enough that I can put on a bunch of bad clothes and she can re-dress me,” Fox explains. “Tonight, I had work on my mind and I just threw something on.”

Dushku, 29, says living with Fox, 41, has opened her eyes to his fashion faux pas.

“I never believed he was a bad dresser” until they moved in together, she says. “We’re in the middle of moving the clothes. The clothes were at one place and he kind of had to pick from the surviving things that he didn’t bring to the house.”
