Met Gala 2014: The Night's Hottest Couples (We're Looking at You, Blake and Ryan!)

05/05/2014 at 11:35 PM ET

Sure the Met Gala, is all about the fashion, but it’s also all about the love. (Sorry, we had to.) And some of Hollywood’s hottest couples hit the carpet together and literally made us sigh out loud at our desks, because they looked so freakin’ amazing. So take your time and scroll through all the best dressed Met Gala duos below.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Met GalaDavid Fisher/Rex USA

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively: “Could these two be any better looking?” This was the subject of a group email sent around to editors along with this photo of Lively and Reynolds, which naturally led to lots of chatting about how great it is to see these two on the red carpet together (it rarely happens!). Lively channeled an Old Hollywood movie star in a Gucci Première blush gown embroidered with rose gold paillettes and featuring a long train.

“This was a little bit of a departure from Charles James, because he has a lot of petticoats, a lot of graphic, geometric structures,” she told PEOPLE. “This is more of the Charles James times, ’40s and ’50s. I was a little scared to go too Charles James, because he has such iconic shapes and designs that to me if too many people are drawing from the same inspiration everyone’s going to be in the same dress.”

As for that gorgeous train, the actress shared her doubts: “I love a train but then when I get on these stairs, I’m like, Why am I wearing a train?” she said, laughing. Her husband looked similarly sharp in Gucci, looking dapper as ever in a custom midnight blue velvet tuxedo and classic bow tie.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 tour might be winding down, but luckily we got another bonus round of Stone and Garfield on the red carpet. Stone was an instant pick for our Best Dressed list in her pink crop top and raspberry floor-skimming skirt (both Thakoon). But Garfield was definitely her best accessory, selecting a metallic jacket, black tuxedo pants (both Band of Outsiders) and a classic bow tie.

David and Victoria Beckham: When these two hit the carpet, it’s impossible not to drop everything you’re doing to just stare. Victoria selected a white strapless design from her own label and David matched her accordingly in a Ralph Lauren white tuxedo jacket. And while we know the Met Gala isn’t a family affair, and Mom and Dad do deserve their date night, but we’d love to see the whole Beckham brood all dressed up. (Just imagine baby Harper in a ball gown!)

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron: Theron turned to her Instagram account to debut her black-and-white Dior Haute Couture look and major wing ear cuff. And we love how happy she looked next to her new boyfriend,Penn. (We don’t remember him smiling this big, like … ever.)

Amber Heard and Johnny DeppDimitrios Kambouris/Getty

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: Never one to pass up a theme, Depp made Charles James proud in his coattails and cane (of course he added some signature style moves with a pocket watch and some colorful shades). And his fiancée stunned in a long-sleeved metallic Giambattista Valli design, teamed with red lips and a matching mani.

Gisele and Tom Brady Met Gala Kevin Mazur/WireImage

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
: True Story: They are so good looking, one of our reporters said she almost fainted in when they walked by. The supermodel (and her always impeccable waves) stunned in a plunging custom Balenciaga design and her footballer husband (in all his chiseled-face glory) went for a white jacket and classic bowtie.

Diane Kruger and Joshua JacksonGetty

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson: You know how we feel about these two. (We dedicated a whole post to them!) Kruger did her high-fashion thing in an ice-blue Hugo Boss design, and Jackson hopped on the white tuxedo bandwagon, looking as handsome as ever.

Beyonce and Jay Z Kevin Mazur/WireImage

Jay Z and Beyoncé: Don’t make us say it. Okay, fine we’ll say it. We saved the best for last. First let’s tackle Beyoncé. The singer stunned in a sheer mesh heavily-embellished Givenchy Couture gown and matching head-piece, plus a lot of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. And Jay kept it sleek in a white Tom Ford (naturally) jacket and black tuxedo pants.

Which couple had your favorite style? Tell us below!

What is everyone’s obsession with Beyoncé? There were much better dressed women than her. I don’t get it. The best for last? Really??? Her dress is awful. I will say this though- she looked 20 times better than Kim Kardashian…

Is it me or does Victoria Beckham get Uglier and Johnny Depp gets weirder every time I see them. idk I mean maybe she’s not “Ugly” per say but who ever does her makeup should be fired. That dark eye shadow does absolutely NOTHING for her! Poor Johnny looks like he got time traveled into the future from 1912 o_O

Charlize has them ALL beat!

I think Lively was hands down the best dressed of the night she was perfection!
It’s so strange still to see Charlize Theron and Sean Penn…and what’s that on his face? Has he EVER looked genuinely happy like that? I wish Theron had some color somewhere. Love the elegance of the dress, but a pop would’ve been nice.
LOVE how Emma Stone can carry off those bold colors–she looks divine and Spidey, I mean, Andrew Garfield is the luckiest man in Hollywood (him and Ryan Reynolds)
I’ve got nothing nice to say about Beyonce’s outfit.
Bored to tears with Spice Girl–she coulda done it UP! Some of her stuff is so stunning!

Sorry, but Jay Z and Beyoncé were not the best.

Blake Lively’s boob job is a train wreck. Those things scream “faaaaake” from a mile away.

Beyonce looks horrible. On any other person, that outfit would be criticized but apparently she can do no wrong (same with SJP)! I thought Blake Lively looked amazing, as well as Chanel Iman.

Terri on

Charlize looks beautiful! Beyonce looked terrible, as usual. She apparently only owns tacky clothes that expose her crotch.

Jay and Bey nailed it. Best dressed couple of the evening by far. They rocked it all the way out!!

Charlize is normally 100% stunning but her gown does NOT fit properly the bunching and pulling in the front is distracting and so it the tacky ear cuff that does not compliment the look :( I love the pink on Emma her body is smoking and Andrew is the perfect accessory, love love love Victoria Beckams dress it’s classic Jackie Kennedy chic. Jay Z and Beyonce are captivating…Beyonce’s look channels Josephine Baker from the 1920s. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it is FASHION and very few people could pull it off! I like the dress on Blake but something about her screams BLAH! All of the men cleaned up well and look dapper except for Johnny Dep…he looks a HOTTTTT foolish mess! I’m suprised there was no mention of Peoples go-to couple Kimye…they actually looked decent for once much better than the huge floral debacle she wore last year.
