Justin & Selena: Dating?
Are Justin and Selena really a couple?
Well, we guess this makes it official!

Long-rumored couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez made their first public appearance together when they walked hand-in-hand down the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 27.

Selena, 18, wore a stunning red gown with a matching red clutch while Justin, 16, wore a black suit with a bright red handkerchief stuffed into his breast pocket.

Justin wrapped his arm around Selena’s waist while they took photos in front of the paparazzi and then the two cuddled up close at a table inside the party. Justin and Selena took cute kiss-y photobooth photos together and Selena was seen resting her hand on Justin’s inner thigh. Careful Selena!
