Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch joined his fiancée Sophie Hunter in New York for their first red carpet appearance since becoming engaged.

Earlier this week, Benedict was cosying up to a giant penguin on the red carpet. But, ditching his fluffy friend for a more suitable date instead, last night the actor joined his gorgeous fiancée to attend the premiere for The Imitation Game.

And, don't they look like the perfect pair!

While Benedict looked very dapper suited and booted in a three-piece suit, Sophie looked lovely in a beautiful blue and green embroided gown.

Despite, everyone hoping to get a good glimpse of that new rock of hers, Sophie did well to keep it out of sight placing her new jewels behind her husband's back.


The couple were joined by Benedict's co-stars from his new release, including Keira Knightley who looked gorgeous in a vintage-inspired dress.

In the movie, set during World War II, Benedict plays the lead character of Alan Turing and is tipped for an Oscar nomination for his efforts.

Benedict and Sophie's appearance at the premiere in Manhattan comes after Benedict revealed the couple's engagement by posting an announcement in The Times newspaper.

It read: "The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London."

Despite his discreet way of doing so, eagle eyed readers were quick to spot his happy news and it wasn't long before the congratulations came flooding in.
