Joe Jonas & Gigi Hadid Annihilate First Red Carpet Appearance

By Jason Marshall

 

Mark your calendars, because Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid went public as a couple on Thursday, October 8th, 2015. 

Walking arm-in-arm in support of the first ever Global Lyme Alliance Gala - for which Joe was invited as a speaker - Joe and Gigi looked equal parts stoic, bemused, and slightly happy.

Maybe that's because Joe's lack of height forced the beauty queen to wear flats to a formal event. #TheNerve

#ICYMI: Joe and Gigi have reportedly been dating since May, following Hadid's split from Australian boy wonder Cody Simpson.

Hadid, who has shot to fame in her own right as the face of countless fashion houses and runways, knows lyme disease well. Her mother, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, has publicly battled the tick-transmitted (and very hard to cure) infection for years.

Foster revealed at the fundraiser that she's not the only member of her family that's been forced to fight the disease - Gigi's sister Bella, 19, and 16-year-old brother Anwar have also contracted it.  

Sadness aside, the iconic red carpet moment was met with bated breath and a healthy bit of observation from fans. 

 

 

Here's to 4 months and counting!
