They’ve used every cliché in the book, describing each other as “”family”“, “”best and “”great” – anything to avoid confirming a relationship. But Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber let actions speak louder than words (again) Sunday night when they turned up together at Vanity Fair’s post-Oscars bash.
Gomez, in a red Grecian gown by Dolce & Gabbana, and Bieber, in a black tux – with a red pocket square to match his date – looked every bit the comfortable couple as they posed with their arms around each other before the party, held at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.
As the night went on, the pals shared shots on Twitter, showing Gomez sitting close to Bieber with her hand resting on his knee. But the newly shorn singer wasn’t all about his reported ladylove – according to Vanity Fair’s official Twitter feed, he also worked the room, chatting with megastars like Mick Jagger and Tom Hanks.
Before they showed up at Sunday’s Oscar bash, Bieber and Gomez were spotted at The St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, Calif., where they were seen sharing breakfast, holding hands and strolling on the beach, according to the resort.
