Here Are The Cutest Couples From The 2017 Met Gala

Slaying the red carpet is better together

Tons of celebrities turned some pretty serious looks at last night's Met Gala in honor of fashion genius Rei Kawakubo. The esteemed and highly stylish party was held in anticipation of the museum's showcase of the legendary designer in a groundbreaking solo exhibition. It was easy to spot new trends at the event and even easier to spot impossible-to-imitate avant-garde style inspired by the experimental spirit of the night's theme. Now, we're taking a look at the couples who stormed the red carpet together.

Some notable moments included Serena Williams showing off her baby bump alongside fiance, Alexis Ohanian, and Diddy's decision to lounge on the stairs while his partner, Cassie, poised with radiant opulence. Meanwhile, Claire Danes appeared alongside husband, Hugh Dancy, in an incredibly structured white blouse no less. And although not technically a couple, perhaps the cutest duo in attendance was Frances Bean Cobain and her mom, Courtney Love, who matched in coordinated Marc Jacobs dresses.

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd were smoochin' throughout the night. Gomez's flowy, vintage-inspired Coach outfit was a big departure from her leather Louis Vuitton look from last year.
