May has finally arrived and you know that that means: Outdoor weddings, beautiful bouquets filled with springtime blooms, and — best of all — the Met Gala! Come Monday, May 2, the stars will descend upon the steps of New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual fundraiser for the museum's Costume Institute. Considered the Super Bowl of the fashion industry, the world is waiting to see what head-turning haute couture Hollywood's A-listers will don for this year's Met Gala — from the gorgeous gowns, to the sleek suits, to the decadent diamonds, and the amazing accessories. But in our opinion, arm candy is the best accessory of all at the Met Gala!

While we await this year's event, themed Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, and all the memorable moments it will sure bring, we're throwing it back to our favorite celebrity couples from the Met Galas of yesteryear.

Throughout the years, these longtime loves, wedded pairs, and love-struck famous duos have made us swoon with their fashionable luxe looks, and of course, their looks of love. Behold, the Met Gala twosomes we just can't get enough of!

"On my way to the fancy Met Ball with the ever handsome @DavidBurtka," Neil Patrick Harris tweeted before the 2015 gala. "Looking forward to a very James Bond evening." The pair looked very 007-esque in their dapper matching tuxes.
