Congrats to Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson who have taken their buzzy relationship to the next level: They are now upstate official. After being photographed canoodling at a New York City diner in late October, the pair has fled the hectic, grime-filled world of the Big Apple. The model and the comedian are vacationing in Hillsdale, New York, a quaint, rustic town filled with all the charming things quaint rustic towns have: fragrant bakeries, organic farms, and the luxurious illusion of feeling off-the-grid.
But there are no off-the-grid moments for Davidson and Gerber: The two were captured exiting a supermarket holding hands in low-key looks. Gerber wore a slick black leather jacket, a striped yellow top, dark-wash jeans, and black sneakers, and topped off the down-to-earth ensemble with a white beanie. Davidson kept his outfit even more casual, braving the cold in a lone blue sweater with a white T-shirt peeking out, even darker jeans, and a pair of black Converse. (The crowning accessory here was Davdison’s ear-to-ear smile that was so wide, it was reminiscent of a euphoric Cheshire Cat inhaling all of that clean upstate air.) Sartorially, the two are obviously comfortable with one another!
Gerber and Davidson’s budding relationship has roots in the fashion industry. It is rumored that they met at the Alexander Wang’s Spring 2020, which they both walked. (That was Davidson’s runway debut: He strut in a black beanie, a white tank top that showed off his heavily tattooed arms, and a pair of low-slung leather pants.) Since then, the two have been spotted out and about in New York City, including last week when Gerber was seen attending Davidson’s Brooklyn podcast taping. But as for this out-of-town outing? It is a bridge between the casual and serious stage in a relationship. The act of “going upstate” is not as easy as taking an Uber to visit the other person, and yet, not as intense as taking a flight together. It involves clocking miles, lodging, and being happily trapped under the same roof for several days. And it also involves multiple wardrobe changes! On that note, let’s see whether Gerber or Davidson will offer up any more impressive fashion moments from their romantic getaway.
