There's a new man in Heidi Klum's life.
The Project Runway host, 40, kicked off Oscar weekend at the Weinstein Company pre-Oscars Party in Beverly Hills on Saturday night with Vito Schnabel around 11:30 p.m.
As Klum, who wore a floor-length printed dress and leather jacket, stood at the base of the stairs in an attempt to gain access to the VIP area of the party, she exchanged long kisses with Schnabel, 27.
After being denied access to the section of the event, Klum exited to an outdoor area with four girlfriends to enjoy a few flutes of champagne.
"She was definitely enjoying herself," a partygoer tells PEOPLE.
The former Sports Illustrated cover model enjoyed some more champagne as she and her companions put flowers in her braided up do.
Schnabel, who was dressed casually in a long sleeve polo and jeans with a sweater tied around his waist, exchanged more kisses as they attempted for a second time to access the upstairs VIP area.
Soon after, the couple and their female friends left the party just after 1 a.m.

Since it was first introduced in August of 1982, Diet Coke has developed a strangely dedicated fan base.
For Jakki Ballan, Diet Coke is a full-on addiction. The British woman's love for the beverage turned into a 50-can-a-day habit. According to the Daily Mail, Ballan usually consumes twice her body weight in Diet Coke in a week and has already spent close to $250,000 on her obsession.
Ballan's DC consumption started when her doctor recommend that she stop drinking regular soda in order to manage her weight. She switched to Diet Coke in response and didn't look back until her habit started causing hallucinations.
The reality that Ballan kept chugging Diet Coke until she was literally seeing things may sound over-the-top, but the drink has become a lifestyle – and I count myself among the fanatics. I crack open my first fizzing can at nine o'clock in the morning and have a recycling bin overflowing with shining, silver Diet Coke shells by the day's end.
