The stars gathered in New York last night (May 5) for the Charles James: Beyond Fashion Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While everyone from Taylor Swift and Lily Allen to Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway walked the carpet, it was the couples that stole the show.

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn walked hand-in-hand on the carpet, as did Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, while engaged couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West — KimYe, as the kids say — were also spotted.
But who were the true queen and king of the ball? Beyoncé and Jay Z, of course, both dressed in Givenchy. And when Beyoncé dropped one of her rings on the carpet, her husband swiftly searched for it, picked it up and knelt in a pretend proposal before putting the ring back on her hand.
