Finally, Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski made it official. After weeks of will-they-won’t-they dating-related think pieces, the comedian and the model basically went public with their relationship at a November 27 New York Knicks basketball game in Madison Square Garden. And Ben Stiller was there, too, for some reason.
Well, the reason was that Stiller is a longtime Knicks fan, really, but he presumably didn’t intend to get caught up in the paparazzi explosion that surrounded Davidson and Ratajkowski’s big reveal.
Try as he may have to focus on the game itself, Stiller was sitting right next to Pete Davidson and, as such, ended up in nearly as many photos as the happy couple themselves.
There was plenty to see, too. Stiller’s beloved Knicks were taking on the Memphis Grizzlies and kept the action pretty balanced until the Grizzlies cinched a 127-123 victory.
Oh well, the consolation prize is seeing Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski together, I suppose, though Knicks fans probably would’ve preferred a big fat W. Can’t win ’em all though!
Heck, maybe you can’t win any of ’em: the Knicks ended that game against Memphis with 11 losses to nine wins, only winning a single home game during the entire month of November.
But that’s not the main event. The main event is a rather jubilant Pete Davidson posing next to a coyly content Emily Ratajkowski.
Indeed, Pete and Emily were all smiles throughout the evening, clearly less interested in the game than each other.
And why not? They’re still in the honeymoon phase of their relationship, so to speak, so it doesn’t get much that.
Emily Ratajkowski channeled her typical brand of off-duty model cool in a brown The North Face Nuptse puffer jacket, washed denim jeans, and knee-high snakeskin-printed boots (her go-to shoes these days), while Pete Davidson took it extremely easy in a “Nautilus” sweatsuit from mildly buzzy streetwear brand Sinclair and his favored elderly ASICS.
Davidson’s style has been especially interesting to watch recently, as Kim Kardashian’s former beau delves deeper into his streetwear inclinations.
Not that Davidson has never worn youthful stuff before, but that he’s made it especially clear as of late that he’s into some surprisingly hip stuff.
Maybe Davidson was able to convince Ben Stiller to swap the handsome but relatively anonymous adidas Gazelles that Stiller was wearing for a more on-trend pair of Sambas.
A little style advice might make up for all the hubbub Stiller had to endure while Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski made their big couple splash, at least.
