The Biebers opted for understated couple style tonight.
The Met Gala tonight saw most attendees embrace bold, over-the-top fashions. (Some tied into the American fashion theme—others didn’t). But there was one duo who opted for more pared-back looks on the red carpet tonight: Hailey and Justin Bieber. The married couple chose to embrace all-black evening attire that was timeless, a surprising choice for the couple who typically favors brightly colored streetwear and daring silhouettes.
Hailey wore a black, floor-length gown with a plunging neckline by Saint Laurent. “I’m inspired by the Grace Kellys of the world,” she said during Vogue’s livestream. Justin, meanwhile, did black suiting by “la maison Drew”, as he called it (a reference to Drew House, his own streetwear label). To complete the dressy-casual vibe, he wore a pair of sneakers and carried around a smiley-face—the symbol for Drew House—top-handle bag.
While the couple has a history of coordinating their ensembles on the streets, they rarely do the red carpets together. This is their first Met Gala together, and one of their first joint appearances in a while. Why the stripped-back fashions tonight, when they’re known for statement streetwear? “I’m married now, so things have become more adult,” Bieber said. Perhaps married life has changed them.
