Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes (of the song "Stitches") ratified their heavily rumored relationship last night at the Met Gala, where they walked the red carpet in tandem. They matched, sort of — he wore a maroon suit, and her hair was a pale pink. This marks the first time the rumored couple took their romance out of doors. And where better to do it than at the Met Gala, the most romantic event of the year?
In December of 2017, paparazzi caught Mendes and Baldwin embracing in Toronto. All signs pointed to maybe-dating, but then at the iHeartRadio Awards in March of this year, Baldwin insisted she was single.
"Hailey and I are just friends. So she sent me the photo because I did the show she's hosting, it's called Drop the Mic. So I did the show and I'm really good friends with Hailey. We're truly really good friends," he said, backtracking. He added that he knew the photo would get attention. "I was like, 'That's an awesome photo, I really wish I could post that without the Internet exploding.' And she's like,'I know, wouldn't that be so nice?' And I was like, 'You know what? I'm just going to post it anyway.'"
Potentially, they are still just friends — just friends who walk the Met Gala blush-colored carpet. Just friends who fix each other's dresses.
