Claims of a romance emerged when a supposed pal of Mobolaji’s revealed the relationship to the publication, saying they had been introduced ‘through mutual friends of the fashion world’.

The friend added that Mobolaji had ‘discreetly told people they are dating’.

The stylish journalist added fuel to the speculation thanks to his Instagram page, on which he has posted numerous photos of the pair together, with one dating up to 35 weeks ago.

One selfie depicts the pair in a gloriously sunny holiday location, where they celebrated Christmas Eve together, according to the caption.

In another, the duo jokily posed stiffly side by side in a hotel room as they prepared to head to the 2016 Met Gala, with the stylish male writing to followers: ‘About last night’.

The most recent snap of all shows the pair in each other’s arms, dressed in cute co-ordinating outfits as they seemingly enjoy a lazy Sunday together.

With Lupita in a denim jacket and bright orange top, matching her rumoured beau’s denim shirt and tangerine trousers, the pair seem the perfect match in both personality and interests, evidently sharing a passion for fashion.

Mobolaji has previous worked at Fader and Style.com, taking to his Instagram to document his projects with movie stars such as Jared Leto for the men’s mag.

Meanwhile Lupita has always expressed an interest in style in the past.

As well as putting on endless show-stopping displays at red carpet events, she revealed to Vogue magazine that as a child in Nairobi: ‘I read American, British, and a few African magazines. Then I would design my own clothes.’

Judging by Mobolaji’s Instagram, the new couple have managed to make time for each other despite Lupita’s hectic schedule recently.

She has just finished filming new Disney film Queen of Katwe, which follows Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess prodigy who finds great success at the Women’s Chess Olympiads.

The film was entirely shot in South Africa and Uganda, and is set to premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on September 10.
