The pair posed for photos, too, fueling talks that they are indeed an item. The stars didn’t officially make their red-carpet debut at the fashionable event since they didn’t actually walk it together. But they did apparently arrive with each other, as evidenced by various photos and videos on designer Zac Posen’s Instagram story, which shows Foxx and Holmes riding in the same car.
Posen designed Holmes’ dress, a custom lavender and violet tulle gown. Foxx went with a traditional black suit and tie, and purple shoes that complemented Holmes’ outfit.
The tabloids have had a field day over the years guessing whether the Oscar winner and the former “Dawson’s Creek” actress are dating.
Holmes, of course, was previously married to Tom Cruise, who, ironically, starred alongside Foxx in 2004’s “Collateral,” which came out about a year before she and Cruise started dating. They got engaged not even two months later and married in November 2006, seven months after they welcomed daughter Suri. The couple divorced in August 2012.
Foxx has two daughters, one born in 1994 and one born in 2009. The identity of the mothers is not clear.
In 2013, chatter that Holmes and Foxx were a couple began to surface, and they have been spotted together over the years but have never publicly addressed or confirmed a dating relationship.
