Taylor Swift skipped the Grammys on Sunday night; instead, she opted to attend the BAFTA celebrations in London to support her boyfriend Joe Alwyn, who appears in The Favourite. And the typically elusive couple marked the special occasion by making the rare move of not only stepping out in public together but also by (gasp) holding hands in front of the paparazzi.
Unlike some of her previous relationships (ahem, Hiddleswift), the Reputationsinger has kept things with Alwyn pretty much under wraps since they started dating almost two years ago. At first, there were a few sightings here and there, and stories about them hiding out in London together. (He’s British). Slowly but surely, as things began to progress between the two of them, we started to have more and more sightings of the couple out together. But generally speaking, we’ve really just seen creeper shots at industry parties they both attended or pictures of them strolling down the street together. Images of any semblance of PDA have been few and far between.
