All eyes were on Kim Kardashian at the Marine Corps Ball last night -- but one pair was probably paying more attention than others.

The 32-year-old reality TV star's date, Sgt. Martin Gardner, appeared to have trouble keeping his eyes off his date at the Greenville, N.C., event on Thursday night. And who could blame him? Kardashian looked spectacular in a fire-engine red Roland Mouret dress and appeared to be having a great time.

"Just left the Marine Corps Ball. Thanks to all of the marines I had the opportunity to meet tonight ! Thank you for all that you do," Kardashian tweeted yesterday.

So, how did Gardner snag the most famous date at the ball?

As it turns out, it wasn't through video, the way Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis (who attended the same ball as Kardashian's last year) were wooed.

According to Us Weekly, the Gardner was part of the evening's planning committee and invited her to attend as a special guest months ago.

"She's in production now, but was able to move things around and make the trip for this," a source told E! Online.

But, fans of Kimye don't have to worry -- the date was strictly platonic, with Kardashian reportedly returning to her hotel alone after the event.
