17 Picture-Perfect Met Gala Couples Who Slayed The Red Carpet

Because two is better than one

On Monday night (May 2), the biggest names in entertainment hit the red carpet at the annual Met Gala in New York City. This year's theme was "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which made for some creative and out-of-this-world outfits.

Some artists showed up all by their badass selves (Beyoncé! Rachel McAdams!), while others came hand in hand with their significant other or spouse (Zayn and Gigi! The Weeknd and Bella!)

Here are all the couples who ruled the 2016 Met Gala red carpet with their picture-perfect relationships.

    When in doubt, wear black.

    We can't look away from Kanye's piercing, blue-eyed gaze.

  3. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

    Is it weird holding hands with a robot, Gigi?

    Apparently gazing longingly into your lover's eyes was the pose of the night.

    Only Nicole Kidman could pull off a bedazzled cape.

    Turns out navy DOES go with black.

    Slayyyy!

    The duo struck their power poses separately, but they wore matching Tamagotchis. This signals a bond much deeper than an engagement ring could ever represent.

    OK, they're not technically a couple, but they took tons of red carpet pics together. Look how fierce they look together! We ship it.

    Danes is Cinderella IRL. Except her dress glows in the dark, which ups the cool factor by, like, a gazillion.

    Again, you literally can't go wrong wearing black.

  12. J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath

    Seriously, all black, all the time.

  13. Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert

    But then again, Orange Is the New Black. (Sorry, not sorry.)

    Look at those smizes! Smizing = smiling with your eyes, ICYMI.

  15. Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller

    No blue steel faces here.

  16. Mark Ronson and Joséphine de La Baume

    Lookin' good, you guys.
