8 hottest couples on the Met Gala red carpet

Selena and The Weeknd make their red carpet debut as a couple

By Kristina Rodulfo  May 2nd, 2017

We witnessed some PDA at the Met Ball— including from some brand new couples. Selena Gomez with The Weeknd, Jennifer Lopez with Alex Rodriguez, and Serena Williams (sporting a baby bump) with fiancé Alexis Ohanian all made their red carpets. See which other duos weren’t shy to show their love.

Cutest couples on the Met Gala 2017 red carpet

Kerri Russel and Matthew Rhys

The Americans co-stars and real-life couple Kerri Russel and Matthew Rhys embodied dark drama on the red carpet, with Rhys opting for a kilt and Russel wearing a tuxedo jacket and trousers.

Cassie and Diddy

Sean 'Diddy' Combs gave us one of our favourite Met Gala moments when he casually lounged back on the stairs and let Cassie take the spotlight. 

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady

Couple that shines together, stays together. This is not us talking, it's pure Gisele and Tom.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez

J-Lo and A-Rod made sure that Selena and Abel weren't the only newbie couples debuting on the red carpet this year. 

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd

After countless Instagram appearances and Coachella sightings, Selena and The Weeknd finally made their red carpet debut. And how the paps lapped it up.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

If you thought Chrissy and John can't give us any more #RelationshipGoals than they already have, then you've got another think coming.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

A pregnant Serena Wiliams added 'slaying red carpets like it's no big deal' to her growing list of accomplishments, as she posed with husband-to-be, Alexis Ohanian.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Everyone's favourite couple Blake and Ryan gave us another lesson in coordinated dressing this year. While Blake looked like a tropical bird emerging from the depths of a rainforest, Ryan matched in a navy suit with a bright bow tie.

Best red carpet looks at the Met Gala 2017

From Rihanna’s Comme des Garcons look to Priyanka Chopra’s sexy detective get-up, these are the looks we loved on the Met Gala 2017 red carpet.

We promise you there's a Katy Perry underneath all that tulle from Maison Margiela Artisanal. A statement headpiece and veil worked their way into the pop icon's outfit, because well, Katy Perry.


Giving Kendall company in the sheer stakes, Bella Hadid prowled the red carpet in a beaded Alexander Wang catsuit. Not sure who's winning the ping-pong of this breakup, but we like what we see. 

Two years after promising that her first Met Gala appearance would be her last, Amy Schumer lifted her self-imposed ban and joined the festivities in a liquid leather dress from Zac Posen. 

Fast facts: Kendall Jenner's La Perla gown is fashioned out of 85,000 crystals. Oh, and it is all held together by one string. (More details here.)

Queen of OTT, Kim Kardashian took a back seat by downplaying the drama in a no-frills Vivienne Westwood number. Not very Rei Kawakubo of her, but there's no faulting the minimal aesthetic.

On the very opposite end of the spectrum, Lena Dunham gave full reign to her kooky side in a flouncy Elizabeth Kennedy gown and combat boots. She also managed to tuck a Planned Parenthood pin into the ruffles of the dress, in solidarity with the organisation. 

Oh, sweet Rihanna. The fashion maven took to the night's theme in an ornately structured Comme des Garçons number, paired with matching eyeshadow and thigh-high strappy heels. "I can’t really walk in it without help—but it’s so worth it,” she admitted to Vanity Fair in an interview.

Angelina Jolie didn't punch in attendance at the power cocktail night, but was present in spirit: Gigi Hadid's wide-legged stance look familiar? The model couldn't walk up the coveted stairs with beau Zayn Malik, but did just fine on her own in a sculptural mini dress from Tommy Hilfiger, of course.

We'd talk more about how Zendaya is lovingly enveloped in Dolce & Gabbana, but that afro is earning every minute of its airtime. Factor in that luminescent sheen, and we hope her make-up artist gets a raise. 

Solange Knowles added her two pence to the avant garde theme of the night in a Thom Browne number with a quirky parka for a train.

The unofficial boudoir theme curried more favour as Selena Gomez showed up in a silken lace maxi from Coach, compounded by a slew of steamy hugs with boyfriend The Weeknd, much to the paps' delight.


Blake Lively turned up in a feathered concoction from Atelier Versace that would have Serena Van Der Woodsen wiping off proud tears with a perfectly manicured nail. When you tear your eyes away from the ombre plumage, here's how stunning it looks from the back.
