On April 30, the SKIMS founder and SNL star attended the 2022 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington D.C., joining journalists, fellow celebs, President Joe Biden and host Trevor Noah.
As they walked the red carpet together for the first time, Kim sparkled in a sleeveless silver Balenciaga Couture gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, while Pete sported a black Prada tuxedo paired with Prada sunglasses and Vans shoes. The two posted for several pics in front of the press.
The pair attended the White House press corps' annual gala, held at the Washington Hilton Hotel, as guests of ABC News, a source told E! News. The couple sat at ABC's reserved table, next to ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl. ABC's parent company, Disney, owns a majority stake in Hulu, which streams the new reality show The Kardashians.
While they were seated, they were approached by a familiar face—Kris Jenner's ex, Caitlyn Jenner. The Olympian, who was introduced to Pete earlier this year, greeted Kim with a big hug. The two were seen smiling as they chatted, and Pete, who had stepped away, soon joined in.
As Trevor launched into his comedy set, he gave Pete a shout-out. "You guys spent the last two years telling everyone the importance of wearing masks and avoiding large indoor gatherings. Then the second someone offers you a free dinner, you all turn into Joe Rogan, huh?" I mean, Dr. [Anthony] Fauci dropped out. That should have been a pretty big sign Fauci thought it was too dangerous to come tonight. Pete Davidson thinks it's okay. And we all went with Pete. Okay."
Also during their high-profile date night, Pete and Kim hung out with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Martha Stewart, who posted a photo of the three on her Instagram. Kris commented, "You guys look BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I have FOMO."
The lifestyle guru also shared a video of Pete backstage at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber in 2015, during which he helped roast the guest of honor as well as Martha herself, a fellow participant. "Seven years ago i was on the stage with a young upstart named pete who was doing comedy on saturday night live," she wrote. "Now that same pete is all grown up , squiring gorgeous women around and appearing everywhere !"
Kim and Pete were also spotted at ABC News' private party. Another source said the two held hands the entire time, with Kim often leading the way and guiding Pete through the crowd.
Late that night, Kim shared photos of herself and Pete getting ready for the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner on her Instagram, captioning her post, "White House din din."
Pete and Kim have been dating since last fall. Earlier this month, he joined her and her family at the premiere of their Hulu show The Kardashians but did not walk the red carpet to take photos.
