In addition to being a time of great style, the Met Gala is also an opportunity to see star couples enjoy a one-of-a-kind date night. Who doesn’t love a gala? It’s the chance to put on your finest attire (hopefully, on par with the theme…), get creative, rub elbows with the who’s who of Hollywood and step out for a good cause. For the record, the very expensive tickets (word on the curb is they’re $35,000) raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion department.
We’ll have to see how this year’s theme translates for today’s stars. One thing’s for certain though, we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the fashions of our favorite Black celebrity couples. To the Met Gala festivities, we decided to take a look back at the times Black love and themed fashion collided. From Bey and Jay shutting down the red carpet to Pharrell and wife Helen styling in memorable leather ensembles and Rihanna and ASAP Rocky stealing the show at last year’s event, this is how your favorite couples have done the Met Gala over the years.
