The 15 best — and wildest — dressed celebrity couples at the 2019 Met Gala

Held annually at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on the first Monday of May, the Met Gala is perhaps the most important night in the fashion calendar.

Each year, A-list celebrities push the limits of red-carpet style in eye-catching ensembles designed to match the fundraising event’s theme. This year, the theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 Partisan Review essay “Notes on ‘Camp,'” in which Sontag defined the concept as “playful” and “anti-serious.” She wrote that camp “celebrates ‘style’ over ‘content,’ ‘aesthetics’ over ‘morality,’ and ‘irony’ over ‘tragedy.'”

Celebrity couples interpreted the theme in various ways at the 2019 Met Gala, with stars like Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott wearing colourful takes on theme, while others like Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas turned heads in even more over-the-top ensembles.

Here are the best – and wildest – celebrity couple looks of the evening.

Serena Williams stepped out on the red carpet in a voluminous yellow gown alongside her tuxedo-clad husband, Alexis Ohanian.

The Met Gala co-chair wore a custom Versace gown embellished with intricate butterfly details. Underneath her ensemble, she wore a pair of Nike sneakers, as she did to the royal wedding. And at her side, Ohanian wore a retro-style tuxedo with black pants and a white dinner jacket.

Kris paired a custom Tommy Hilfiger pantsuit with an eye-catching jacket, and finished her look with a blonde bob that Jenner told E! News was a last-minute decision after her daughter Kylie persuaded her to go blonde for the gala. Gamble was at Kris’ side wearing a shiny black tux, white shirt, and standout blue tie.

Miley Cyrus posed in a structured minidress next to Liam Hemsworth who wore a black tux.
