After a year-and-a-half hiatus, the Met Gala is finally back—and the red carpet is even more tantalizing than we remembered. Sure, we are drooling over the epic fashions (this year's theme celebrates American style), but we're actually falling head over heels for the A-list power couples who are walking up the Metropolitan Museum of Art steps together. From coordinated outfits to power posing for the camera, it's safe to say that the term #CoupleGoals doesn't even cut it this Met Gala Monday.

If you're not already envious that you aren't attending fashion's biggest night (because honestly, who isn't?), then brace yourself for these adorable celebrity couple moments.

What's a better parents' night out than the Met Gala? Chance the Rapper and wife Kristen Corley arrived hand in hand this evening in custom Ralph Lauren looks. The parents of two tied the knot in 2019, but the best part of their love story is this: They met when Chance was just nine years old!

Both dressed in head-to-toe Valentino, Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz were one of the first duos to walk up the iconic steps this evening. "She tried this on and I matched her," Beckham admitted of their coordinating looks. The young pair, who has been engaged since 2020, exchanged a few kisses as they posed for the cameras and if this appearance is anything like their wedding day, we're even more excited for the day they say "I do." Here's to hoping next Met Gala Monday they'll be attending as husband and wife!

Would it be a Met Gala without Serena Williams? The former co-chair slayed the carpet in a silver lace bodysuit and showstopping feather cape with husband Alexis Ohanian by her side. The couple, who tied the knot in a fabulous New Orleans celebration in 2017, will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary in just a few short months.

Naomi Osaka and Cordae Dunston have entered the chat! The couple, who leans toward keeping their relationship private, arrived at the Met Gala in style. After all, the tennis champion is co-chair for the evening! The pair have been dating for two years and are no strangers to supporting each other's careers. Grammy-nominated rapper Dunston has written lyrics about the athlete and Osaka was the one who introduced him to tennis!

Game of Thrones fans, rejoice! Former co-stars (and envious husband and wife pair!) Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are in attendance tonight and their appearance did not disappoint. But tonight is a big milestone for the couple: It's one of their first red carpet walks since becoming parents to a baby boy in February.

Fitting for an NBA star who has won several championships, Steph and Ayesha Curry made their Met Gala debut dripping in silver and gold Versace looks. Before they were one of basketball's most famous couples, they were just two teenagers in love (they met at just 15 and 14 years old!). Now, they have 10 years of marriage and three children under their belts—and, hopefully, many more Met Gala appearances in their future.

Everyone's favorite momager Kris Jenner and her boyfriend of seven years, Corey Gamble, are no strangers to the Met Gala carpet. This year, they both arrived wearing black suits and complementary emerald jewels. Their outfits are more understated than in years past, but any red carpet with these two on it is sure to be fabulous—and we're suckers for couples who coordinate their looks!

Any day we see Justin and Hailey Bieber on the red carpet is a good day—especially when it is at the Met Gala! The couple chose black ensembles for tonight's festivities. And want to hear something swoon-worthy? Justin said he owes his ever-evolving fashion sense to his marriage to Hailey. Excuse us while our hearts melt.

It's safe to say that Alicia Keys served major bridal vibes on the Met Gala carpet tonight. With her husband and fellow musician Swizz Beatz by her side, the singer arrived in a dramatic white number, which we could totally see on the bridal runway or wedding aisle. The pair recently celebrated 11 years of marriage together, too!

Summer may be over but love is still in the air for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. The Cinderella actress and "Summer of Love" singer didn't hold back when it came to their fashion choices for the evening, with both opting for unexpected and revealing looks. In their two-and-a-half years of dating, we've seen this duo pose on red carpets a number of times but this moment is one of our favorites!

How many couples can say they honeymooned at the Met Gala? Newlyweds Jasmine Tookes and Juan David Borrero might be the only ones. The couple stepped foot on the Met steps less than two weeks after tying the knot in Ecuador. With a new pixie cut and asymmetrical gown, Tookes's look tonight is the opposite of her classic bridal style (which was inspired by Grace Kelly!), but one thing is for sure—we're so glad this new husband and wife pair made it this evening!

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck might not have walked the red carpet together but let's make this clear: Bennifer is in the building! The couple shared a kiss inside the museum, and albeit it was with masks on, this moment still put us in our feels.
