The Met Gala loves couples. The relationship is reciprocal: Couples also love the Met Gala, probably because it's one high-profile event where red carpet interaction is minimal.

All is well. All is cuddly. For now.
Historically, the Met Gala hasn't been a harbinger of good luck for couples. Last year, Selena Gomez walked the carpet with The Weeknd. And now? She's maybe dating Justin Bieber, and The Weeknd maybe wrote some songs about her. (He definitely did.) Ahead, the couples who cursed their luck at the Met Gala.
