Anna Wintour's love life to date as she arrives at Met Gala with rumoured partner Bill Nighy
Watch: Anna Wintour and Bill Nighy seemingly confirm romance at Met Gala
Anna Wintour and Bill Nighy have once again sparked dating rumours as they arrived together at last night's 2023 Met Gala.
Vogue's publishing icon, 73, who has been presiding over the prestigious event since 1995, and the Love Actually star, also 73, walked the red carpet arm in arm in a move, which was seen by many to seemingly confirm a romantic relationship.
For the occasion, Wintour wore a chic patterned coat over a silver, satin, column skirt. Meanwhile, her date for the evening wore a sharp black suit with a crisp white shirt and a simple, navy blue tie.
While this appeared to be something of a red carpet debut, there have been whispers that the editor-in-chief and actor have been dating for many years.

Back in August 2021, the rumoured couple were seen enjoying a romantic dinner together in Rome.
In pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, Nighy could be seen buying some roses to gift Wintour before the duo sat down for their meal.
Prior to that, the duo were spotted together at various fashion shows, theatres and restaurants between London and New York.

Nighy briefly addressed the dating speculation to Page Six at the time, saying: “There are a lot of rumours about me and probably about Anna.”
The pair also sparked romance rumours back in December 2022 when they were spotted in New York City for a screening of Nighy’s film Living.
While we wait to see whether the couple will officially confirm they are in a romantic relationship, here's a look back on Wintour's dating history, which includes two marriages and two children.
