Tonight marks the longtime couple’s first official appearance since an Elvis Presley impersonator officially declared them husband and wife during a star-studded ceremony in Las Vegas last Wednesday, May 1. Though our sources say the Jonas Brothers singer and Game of Thrones star still plan to tie the knot in France over the summer, the impromptu wedding served served both as a legal ceremony and celebration for their closest family and friends.
As for their Met Gala appearance, Joe and Sophie looked so in love as they ascended the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art by each other’s side. The couple gave the cameras a demure pose as they showed off their colorful matching ensembles. Sophie ditched the typical ball gown to wear a custom pantsuit from Louis Vuitton, which was perfectly accented by Joe’s turtleneck and black pants.
The pair has likely been planning the look for some time since Sophie attended the most recent Louis Vuitton show, plus Joe is a frequent wearer of the label.
On the way to the ball, the A-listers mingled with famous stars like Justin Theroux, Laura Harrier and Robyn.
Both Joe and Sophie have attended several Met Galas over the years, though never as each other’s official dates.
Joe was accompanied by his brothers at the 2012 soiree, and in 2017 walked with Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner in matching H&M ensembles. That year, he mixed and mingled with Nick and Priyanka, who at the time were not yet dating!
As for Sophie, 2015 marked her inaugural Met Gala followed by her second in 2017. She wore Burberry and Louis Vuitton, respectively.
