Engaged lovebirds Benji Madden and Sophie Monk, hanging out under the stars in the courtyard at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood and holding hands across a candlelit table. Madden, wearing a bowler hat, lifted his fiancée's hand multiple times to give it a soft peck as the Australian bombshell cocked her shoulders in glee. Hours later at the valet stand, Madden gallantly wrapped his jacket around his shivering lady.

Nicole Richie and that other rocker beau, Joel Madden, dining on sautéed sea bass and Evian water at Beverly Hills eatery Mr. Chow. The couple were joined for dinner by two friends, and according to a fellow diner, they "looked really cute together, holding hands and looking into each other's eyes."

Donald Faison and Cacee Cobb


Scrubs star Donald Faison and girlfriend Cacee Cobb, enjoying a mellow evening together at Beverly Hills steakhouse the Lodge. After patiently waiting at the bar for the next available table, the casually dressed duo – he sported a mustard hooded sweatshirt and jeans, while she wore a camisole, cardigan and jeans – was escorted to their seats where the chivalrous Faison pulled out Cobb's chair. According to an onlooker, the couple giggled over cocktails and appetizers. And as they prepared to leave, Faison placed his hand gently on her back, guiding her through the dining room.
