Though it might still be up for debate, the annual Met Gala is the biggest red carpet of the year. From the annual extravagant theme (which will be in honor of Karl Lagerfeld this year) to the celebrities from every industry pulling out all their fashion stops, there’s nothing like the glitz and glamour of the Met.
And, given the event’s high importance, it’s no wonder it has also become the mecca of celebrity couples walking the carpet together, making their red carpet debuts and sharing sweet rare PDA moments.
One of our favorite couples, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, for example, not only made their red carpet debut on the Met steps in 2014, but they’ve also shared many adorable moments on the carpet. Most noticeable are the pictures of Reynolds just looking lovingly at his wife as she poses for pictures (and coincidentally matches the carpet year after year!). After all, Lively is the undisputed Queen of the Met Gala. We’d stop and stare too, Ryan!
Check out some of the cutest celebrity couples from Met Galas over the years below!
Rihanna & A$AP Rocky
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky left the best for last as they were the last guests to make it through the 2023 Met Gala. At one point during their walk up the steps, the “Love on the Brain” singer posed in the middle of the carpet as Rocky stood in the sidelines and just smiled lovingly to his partner. Talk about heart-eyes!
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
At the 2023 Met Gala, Keith Urban was the ultimate gentleman as he helped his wife Nicole Kidman up the stairs. Kidman, who wore a vintage Chanel dress to the event, totally appreciated the help with such a long feathered train.
Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade
As Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade attended the 2023 Met Gala, the two held a firm grip as they posed for photos. Despite their fierce model looks, the two looked adorable leaning on each other for strength like that.
Beyoncé & Jay Z
While Beyoncé and Jay Z posed for pictures at the 2014 Met Gala, the “Formation” singer lost one of her rings. Jay Z then found the ring, quickly caught it and delicately placed it back on his wife’s hand. So cute!
Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker
Kourtney Kardashian attended her first-ever Met Gala with her hubby Travis Barker in 2022. On the carpet, the two had some major PDA, holding each other’s hands and sharing some sweet kisses.
Pete Davidson & Kim Kardashian
As if the world wasn’t talking about them enough already, Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian looked oh so sweet together as they walked the 2022 Met Gala together.
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
When Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds attended the 2014 Met Gala together, it was not only their Met Gala debut but it was their red carpet debut too. And, believe it or not, they were already married and parents at this point! Anyways, their sweet smiles and Reynolds’ cheeky butt grab in photos make it one of our favorite couple moments of all time
Joshua Jackson & Jodie Turner-Smith
Joshua Jackson proved he’s the best plus one for red carpets when he fixed his wife Jodie Turner-Smith’s train at the 2022 Met Gala. In sickness and in fashion, right?
Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid
Former couple Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid kept their relationship quite private until this 2016 Met Gala moment totally swept us off our feet. At one point, Hadid held Malik’s face as they looked lovingly at each other and wow it was a moment for the movies!
Selena Gomez & The Weeknd
Speaking of former couples who gave us some memorable Met Gala moments, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd proved just how sweet their relationship was when they attended the 2017 Gala together. The two could barely keep their hands off each other as they walked up the steps!
2 Chainz & Kesha Ward
At the 2018 Met Gala, rapper 2 Chainz proposed to his longtime love Kesha Ward right on the steps of the Met. In this pic, you can see the rapper’s pure happiness and Ward’s disbelief as she showed her new bling to photographers. Iconic!
A$AP Rocky & Rihanna
As one of the last guests to arrive on the carpet at the 2021 Met Gala, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna proved fashion doesn’t have to be serious as they laughed and smiled wearing fashionable oversized coats.
Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos
Many years before they started co-hosting Live together, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos were giving us major #couplegoals with this sweet squeeze at the 2007 Met Gala.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs & Cassie
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs wasn’t afraid to show how floored he was with then-girlfriend Cassie’s beauty at the 2017 Met Gala. She looked so good he had to sit and stare!
Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra
Though we know that now-married couple Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra weren’t a couple when they walked the 2017 Met Gala together, we can’t help but think of this moment from them as one of the cutest out there. After all, the world got to witness their spark at the same time they did!
Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen
Although Gisele Bündchen is always looking all kinds of perfect, her ex-husband Tom Brady sweetly tucked her hair behind her ear at the 2019 Met Gala.
George & Amal Clooney
At the 2018 Met Gala, George Clooney was happy to let his wife Amal shine on the carpet. At one point, they stopped posing together for Amal to get some solo shots and let’s just say George was all for it.
Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez
Before they got engaged and tied the knot, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were serving some COVID-safe PDA at the 2021 Met Gala. Safety first, right?
Laurie Combo & Bobby Digi Olisa
New York commissioner Laurie Cumbo said “yes” on the steps of the Met as her partner Bobby Digi Olisa popped the question. What a once-in-a-lifetime moment!
