It looks like style wasn’t the only thing on display during the opening of Refinery29’s 29Rooms interactive art and fashion fun house in Brooklyn last week. Cory Booker and Katy Perry‘s former stylist Cleo Wade made a public appearance as a couple and even posed for photos, according to a Page Six exclusive.
The 47-year-old former Newark mayor, who is in the middle of his first term in the U.S. Senate, usually keeps his romantic relationships under the radar. But the politician and the 27-year-old celebrity stylist and Instagram poet were together smiling throughout the September 8 event, reported the gossip site. She posted a solo photo from the night on Instagram, showing off her ‘magical’ Maison Valentino dress.
Took this magical @maisonvalentino dress out for a spin last night to view the installation my magical arts collective #chezconversations created with our friends @refinery29 for #29rooms "Love Into Harmony" is a meditative audio-visual installation created to bring more love and light into our world. In the airplane, they say to put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping the person next to you. In a world where love for our neighbor has never been needed more, we must first learn to love ourselves.

“They were holding hands through the different rooms and looked very much like a couple.” an eyewitness told Page Six of the politician, who sits on the Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees and the social media star who has 156,000 followers on Instagram and was named one of the 29 under-30 powerhouses poised to change the world by Refinery29. “He was shaking hands with people who were coming up to him, and she was being very friendly with everyone and patient when they wanted to take his picture. He was saying he came to see her work.”
Cleo, who was once linked to Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson, contributed poems to one of the audio-visual installations. The star-studded guest list included Hollywood stars like Victoria Justice, Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra, Jessica Alba, Power‘s Naturi Naughton, Rashida Jones, Tinashe and Entourage‘s Adrian Grenier.
