This red-hot couple just made things official.

Nina Dobrev and Austin Stowell walked their first carpet together Sunday at the premiere of his movie Bridge of Spies at New York’s Lincoln Center, looking sleek and chic in coordinating black ensembles and a bold red lip for the Vampire Diaries vet.

Dobrev, 26, and Stowell, 30, were first linked in June, when they got cozy during a comedy show in Hollywood. They jetted off to Saint-Tropez for a PDA-filled vacation the next month, and Stowell was Dobrev’s date at her former costar Kayla Ewell’s September wedding.

Although Stowell attended a screening for Dobrev’s slasher comedy The Final Girls in June, the Bridge of Spies premiere marked the pair’s first time posing together for cameras at a public event.

On Thursday, The Vampire Diaries season 7 premieres – the first one without leading lady Dobrev.

“There are so many different things that could happen,” she told PEOPLE after announcing her departure from the supernatural CW show. “I’m just going to see where the universe takes me.”
