Phoebe wore a long red plaid skirt with a lace blouse while Paul donned a black velvet tux.

The Irish actor was also seen posing with other celebrities including Dakota Johnson and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

He worked with both actresses on his debut feature film The Lost Daughter.

Paul has spoken about his secret girlfriend and told GQ magazine that she’s a “lifesaver”.

He said: “To have someone to lean on through such a mad, mad time has been invaluable. Really, I don’t know where I’d be without her.”
