It seems things are getting serious between Kristen Stewart and her rumoured new girlfriend St Vincent, as the duo hit the Big Apple on Sunday to enjoy a date night. The pair, whose hush-hush romance recently came into the limelight, was spotted "kissing" and "holding hands" during their night out in Manhattan's East Village.

Clearly, Stewart and Cara Delevingne's ex-girlfriend were in no mood to hide their love from the public eyes as they reinforced the romance rumours with their recent date night.

For the occasion, the Cafe Society actress was dressed in black and white attire, which she accessorised with a baseball cap.

On the other hand, the Indie-Rock singer complemented her love interest's quirky fashion with a crop top, black blazer and Adidas track pants. According to reports, the new couple took a leisurely stroll holding hands after enjoying dinner.

Stewart and St Vincent's relationship came into the limelight only last week. Both of them are reported to be fresh off their latest splits. Before this, the Twilight actress was dating her former assistant Alicia Cargile on and off.

She had even gushed about their romance in the September issues of Elle UK saying, "I'm just really in love with my girlfriend. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like: "'Finally, I can feel again."'

If rumours are to be believed, Delevingne and the Digital Witness singer broke up last month due to long-distance issues. "Cara and Annie still care about each other, but pressures of the long-distance romance just became too much," a source said. "The cracks were beginning to show on Cara's birthday in August when Annie wasn't there for her party."

Before Stewart started dating women, she was in a relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. Shedding light on her past link-ups the 26-year-old actress had said that "we were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book".
