The two made the most of their red carpet debut in coordinating black attire. Brown in a stunning Louis Vuitton velvet and lace gown, while Bongiovi donned a classic black tux with an oversized velvet bowtie to match his lady’s whimsical dress.
Millie’s prince charming also wore a pin of the Ukrainian flag to show support for the country in their fight against the Russian invasion.

While Brown has always opted for a more editorial style, fans are starting to get a true sense of her high-fashion elegance now that the actress is 18 and transitioning to a more “grown-up” look.
Rumors of the couple’s relationship began swirling around social media in the summer of 2021, as the two were often seen spending the day together in New York City. It wasn’t until last November that they made the relationship Instagram official.

Now, their love is flooding social media with Instagram pics from Millie’s 18th birthday last month. The two even exchange cute comments like Bongiovi’s caption “Happy birthday barbie ily <3” on his post from her barbie themed celebration.
While it appears that fans and friends of Brown already approved of the pair, the 2022 BAFTA Awards red carpet really solidified the relationship in the public eye.

Photographers captured plenty of adorable photos of the happy couple exchanging loving glances, and Bongiovi even stepped aside for a few shots to let Brown bask in the spotlight. We love a supportive man!
Millie Bobby Brown will be returning to your Netflix screens this May for the release of Stranger Things Season 4. Until then, fans can enjoy watching her relationship with Jake Bongiovi grow!

If you haven’t had a chance to watch “Stranger Things,” you’re missing out. The hit show has received rave reviews for many reasons: Good acting, an extraordinary plotline, and good acting. And, many of the actors still happen to be young.
In January 2017, Millie Bobby Brown — who plays supernatural weirdo Eleven on the show — arrived at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards and proved that the show’s children are not just amazing on-screen, but extremely fashionable off-screen.

While the boys of the show looked dashing in their tuxes and fancy suits, it was Millie that stole the show.

The then 12-year-old actress donned a gorgeous silver Jenny Packham dress that was the perfect blend of fun and fashion.

She finished her look with equally fun Sophia Webster “Lilico” sandals.

The shoes feature short 2.5-inch block heels, so they didn’t age the 12-year-old star.

They were the perfect pair to finish her sparkly silver ensemble. It definitely looked like she had fun staying up past her bedtime for the Golden Globes and the after-parties.

Millie’s makeup was kept to a minimum except for bold red lips and a dash of eye makeup.
“Stranger Things” may not have taken home the anticipated award, but Millie is definitely our pick for young actress with the most style-star potential.

While we were excited to see the show’s cast walk the red carpet flawlessly, fans were thrilled to see Millie flaunt her rapping skills in Jimmy Fallon’s “La La Land” inspired opening number.
