It's about time!

Johnny Depp, 50, and Amber Heard cemented their status as a couple on Saturday night and stepped out for their first official event together at The Art of Elysium's 7th Annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles.

"The Rum Diary" co-stars, who've been canoodling since 2012, skipped the red carpet but popped a pose for the shutterbugs inside the event.

For their big date night, Depp donned a black suit and tie, a tattered tan hat, and his signature black spectacles. Heard, 27, stunned in a black, sequined gown and polished off her look with a perfect red pucker and swept-up tresses.

The lovebirds packed on the PDA throughout the evening, with Heard nuzzling her head into her sweetie as he whispered in her ear. The pair were smiling and enjoying the swanky evening, which also drew stars like Nina Dobrev, Anna Kendrick, Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish, David Arquette, Ali Larter, Joe Manganiello, and more.

While this is their first official appearance together, Depp certainly hasn't kept his affection for his gal pal under wraps. The duo was spotted in Japan in July with Depp's kiddos, Lily-Rose and Jack, during a family trip. Later that week, Depp held Heard's hand as he escorted her to dinner in London.
