Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander made his first red-carpet appearance with supermodel girlfriend Kate Upton Wednesday at the Women's Leadership Awards honoring designer Stella McCartney at New York's Lincoln Center.

It was the first time Verlander appeared on the red carpet with his longtime girlfriend, Perez Hilton reported.

Upton "was pristine in a crisp white suit and semi-sheer, lightly printed blouse," whereas Verlander was "filling out his black suit nicely," Hilton reported.
