Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz wore Maison Valentino for the event
Gomez, 31, and Peltz, 28, graced the red carpet in stunning Maison Valentino gowns. Gomez donned a black silk dress meticulously crafted for her by the creative director of the Italian fashion house, Pierpaolo Piccioli. The off-the-shoulder gown showcased intricate silver sequin rose embroidery, gracefully wrapping around her neck and adorning her arms, complemented by gloves that went with the vibe. The “Same Old Love” singer completed her ensemble with Tiffany’s accessories, including a sizable ring, a stylish bangle, and a pair of elegant drop earrings.

What is the ‘throuple’ origin story?
Peltz previously shared with Cosmopolitan UK the origin of her friendship with Gomez at the Academy Gala last fall, recalling, “We just clicked and had the best time. And then we became super, super close. I feel like she’s my soul sister.”
In the playful spirit of their close bond, the trio playfully adopted the term “throuple” over the past year, coined by the ‘Only Murders in the Building’ star after their New Year’s Eve trip in 2022.
Acknowledging the term, Beckham expressed on The Jennifer Hudson Show in March: “She says we’re a throuple. She’s such a sweet girl. I love when my wife makes new friends, especially really great friends. We all get along.”

‘We speak the same love language’
During an interview with Wondermind, the “Boyfriend” singer emphasized the significance of surrounding herself with “like-minded” individuals who appreciate her for who she is, referring to her connection with Peltz and Beckham.
Sharing a similar sentiment, Peltz explained, “We speak the same love language where it’s like, we never really go out in LA, we are with our six dogs now, we’re always working or with the dogs. When we’re hanging out, it’s always like sleeping over with Gracie and Brooklyn’s cooking, we’re watching a movie — and that’s the best.”
She added, “The best moments are when you don’t have to do anything. You can just be with the people you love, and it makes me so happy, but I’m also such a homebody.”
