20 Of The Cutest Couples From The Met Gala Red Carpet

Sparkly clutches. Six-inch heels (shoutout to my favorite Lemonade track). Feathered capes. Sure, all of these accessories deserve our attention when worn on the red carpet at the Costume Institute's annual Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. But the best accessory at the fashion world's Oscars? An attention-getting date.
This year's theme, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," predictably led to ostentatious displays of bling in the most stylish sense. There were thigh-high strappy sandals, flashes of metallic black lipstick, and 3-D floral skirts. But not even a LuMee-enhanced, Kardashian-approved iPhone in your hand compares to, say, a former New York Yankee on your arm.

Bee Shaffer & Anna Wintour
Sure, they're not a romantic couple, but they are the reigning queen and princess of the Met Gala. Heteronormative rules for coupledom, be damned.

Sarah Jessica Parker & Andy Cohen
The BFFs are the ultimate platonic couple. We would trade our favorite pair of Manolos for five minutes in the pre-Gala limo ride with these two.

Corey Gamble & Kris Jenner
Nothing wrong with jewelry on a man, nor is there anything wrong with sticking to simple black and letting your (many) children shine in metallics.

We're loving the matching sibling hair (and whipping it back and forth, of course).

Hannah Davis & Derek Jeter
These two aren't big on public displays of affection, so this pose is even more romantic than it seems at first glance.

Not technically a couple, but these three are clearly in sartorial love.

Emily Blunt & Olivia Wilde
Who needs husbands and fiancés? These two pregnant movie star BFFs can clearly handle a night out without John Krasinski and Jason Sudeikis.
