Though they were mum on the topic of their relationship at the beginning of their romance last fall, the "Feathers" singer, 25, and the Saltburn actor, 31, have since embraced the love the public has for them, and fans are loving all of their recent joint outings and their public support for each other.

How did Sabrina and Barry meet?

Barry's appearance in Saltburn alongside Jacob Elordi appears to have left quite the impression on Sabrina. After she attended an advance screening of the Emerald Fennell movie in September, the two reportedly met during Paris Fashion Week a week later.

The two were both in attendance during the Givenchy fashion show on September 28, and per E! News, it's where they were first introduced to each other.

When did Sabrina and Barry start dating?

Though they first met in September, it wasn't until December that rumors of their romance officially began. In photos shared by the Daily Mail at the time, they are seen grabbing dinner together on December 3 in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood.

They were spotted again one month later having a night out at Luna Luna, an art-themed amusement park temporarily in Los Angeles revived from 1987.

By February, Sabrina and Barry started making more public appearances together, starting with W Magazine's Grammys after party with Mark Ronson and Gucci, during which they posed for a photo together shared by the outlet on X.

In March, Barry was seen supporting Sabrina during her opening act of Taylor's Eras Tour in Singapore, and they also made their red carpet debut during the Vanity Fair Oscars after party.

The following month, Barry was front row again while Sabrina performed at Coachella, where Taylor and Travis were also in attendance. During one of her performances then, Sabrina made a cheeky reference to Barry's viral bath water scene in Saltburn, when she made her "Nonsense" outro: "Man his knees so weak he had to spread mine / He's drinkin' my bath water like it's red wine / Coachella, see you back here when I headline."

Most recently, they were in attendance together during the Met Gala on May 6, and Barry made a sweet appearance during a get-ready-with-me video Sabrina shot with Vogue. He also helped her celebrate her 25th birthday later that month.
