While their first red carpet debut was officially at W Magazine‘s annual Best Performances party in Los Angeles, this was their first appearance as a couple at the Met Gala.
Rumours about the two began flying in December 2021 after they were spotted at yoga together following their breakups. Gerber broke up with her boyfriend of a year, Jacob Elordi, and Butler broke it off with his longtime girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
The theme for the Met Gala 2022 is “Gilded Glamour” which takes its inspiration from the Costume Institute’s exhibition, In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Attendees are encouraged to recreate the glamour and spirit of the Gilded Age of New York, which is a period that stretched from 1870 – 1890.
