She wore her brunette tresses in an elegant up-do and opted for a glossy make-up look for the star-studded evening.
The couple have been dating for the past few months following Hope’s split from her ex-wife, Isabella Carlstrom.
In September, Hope slammed criticism herself and Maria got together too soon following her split from Isabella, with whom she shares two children.
An emotionally-charged Moana took to Instagram saying there were no hard and fast rules for when to move on when you separate.

‘Can they send me the book on how to be separated?’ Moana said in a video on Instagram.
‘Is there an index section in that book that says how long you should have to wait to be separated from someone before you find happiness?’
She went on to say the choice to move on is up to her.
‘Whether I am dating one person or multiple people… Whatever decision I make for me is my choice. I don’t need to follow some book,’ she said.

The sportswoman added that she was the ‘happiest she had been in a long time’ with Maria, adding her mental health had also improved.
‘If I decide to date… That’s my choice. I do not need anyone to tell me what is acceptable,’ she said.
The couple have been doing the rounds at a number of premieres in Melbourne, including Death of a Salesman in September.
They were spotted packing on the PDA in a Melbourne restaurant.

Maria also recently went through a high-profile breakup, after she and her TikTok star ex-girlfriend Jorgia O’Hare, announced their split in June.
Taking to Instagram at the time, Maria wrote: ‘After a beautiful year together, Jorgia and I wish to share that we are no longer together.
‘Her love healed so much in me and was a light that I was missing for a long time.’
