Heard wasn’t the only starlet who flew solo at the gala, an understated theme of the evening seemed to be ladies letting their less fashion-forward men stay home in favor of taking a designer or stylist as their plus one.
Beyonce notably stepped out without her husband, Jay Z, or her wedding band, stunning the crowd in her Givenchy dress and letting a stylist worry about the details.
Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend (fiance? husband? We can’t keep it straight.) Meek Mill is technically on house arrest right now, but this probably wouldn’t be his scene anyway. The rapper rolled with the Moschino gang on the Gala red carpet, posing alongside creative director Jeremy Scott in her sexy, strappy gown.
After Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds looked devastatingly dapper at the White House reception for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau back in March, we were hoping he’d rock the Met Gala carpet with wife Blake Lively. However, Lively held things down just fine on her own, masking her growing baby bump in a gorgeous pink Burberry cape gown and posing alongside the company’s CEO and chief creative officer Christopher Bailey.
