Of all of the fabulous red carpets and awards shows, no event is more exciting than the Met Gala. Formally called the Costume Institute Gala, the annual event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art always attracts the hottest Hollywood couples dressed in their finest outfits. It's like a glorified Halloween party (this year's theme was China: Through the Looking Glass, other years have asked attendees to dress as superheroes and punks), and there's nothing better than seeing our favorite red-carpet duos step out in total harmony. So without further adieu, here are our picks for the best pairs of the night:

Beyoncé and Jay Z (above)
Music's power couple showed up fashionably (and we mean fashionably) late, but that didn't take away from how flawless they looked hand-in-hand climbing the stairs to the Met! Queen Bey stunned in an embellished nude Givenchy gown, while Jay was dapper in a perfectly tailored tux.

It's not the headline-making, floral-print Givenchy gown and gloves she wore to her first Met Gala with Kanye in 2013 (while she was pregnant with North!), but Kim found a way for her and her husband to get all eyes on her yet again at this year's gala. Sure, he's wearing a velvet jacket and a scarf on a hot May day, but who can tell when she's in this sheer Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli creation?

Well, if it isn't the most fashionable newlyweds! Fresh off the news that George pre-approves of all of his barrister wife's outfits, they roll up looking like absolute royalty. Amal's tiered red John Galliano gown is spot-on for the theme, as is her hubby's subtle matching pocket handkerchief.

This is them trying to prepare us for their wedding-day looks, right?! It has to be! The Modern Family star could easily re-wear this ombré Marchesa gown with rose gold embroidery to her wedding to her hunky fiancé. He can keep his outfit, too. They may not look so on-theme, but they do look on point.

These two are still pretty new at walking red carpets together, but they seem to be adjusting just fine! Case in point: They sort of look like a bride and groom on top of a wedding cake tonight, with her in a divinely detailed Givenchy halter gown and him in a classic bow-tie and suit. Or is that just wishful thinking on our part?

This is the first time the actress and her NBA player husband have attended the Met Ball together, but they look like a couple that's been coordinating outfits for a long time. They didn't quite dress to the theme — minus her chic, fan-shaped purse, that is — but her long-sleeved plum-colored Zac Posen gown with the sneaky cutout in the back complements his suave suit and loafers perfectly.

We knew that these two wouldn't disappoint! They love showing up to events (especially the ones NPH hosts!) in coordinating tuxes, and these super-classic black-and-white looks are perfect for any formal occasion or theme.

The fashion plate actress and her Dawson's Creek alum boyfriend always cut a stunning figure, and tonight is no exception. What we love is how he provides an understated contrast (hello, classic black tux!) to her more daring outfits. Her two-piece Chanel Couture ensemble is sexy, edgy, and feminine at the same time. Can you believe she doesn't use a stylist?!

Their white-out wedding in New Orleans was a sign of good joint fashion moments to come. While the singer's husband looks fresh in his tuxedo, she's set to become the talk of the town in her structural Giles Deacon design. Look how cute he is holding her hand as they go up the steps!

These newlyweds always seem so low-key (they were college sweethearts!), but when they show up on a red carpet like tonight's, it's clear that they're stars. Their corresponding black-and-white outfits are so great together — he looks dapper as ever in his tux, and her Maison Valentino gown is sweet, classy, and very event-appropriate.

These two waited to make their red carpet debut until after news of their engagement broke, but boy, did they make it count! Twigs made quite the statement in her artistic Christopher Kane gown, which her fiancé complemented quite sneakily with his unconventional tie. We love how this quirky couple presents themselves together, and now we can't wait for more public appearances!
