Meet the Couple That Won the Met Gala This Year

Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin are low-key relationship goals.

The 2018 Met Gala was a great place for love. This year, the carpeted front steps of the iconic museum were laced with lovers like George and Amal Clooney, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, and Elon Musk and his surprise new girlfriend, Grimes.

There was even a proposal, as rapper 2 Chainz got down on one knee and popped the question to his ecstatic girlfriend of five years, Kesha Ward, amid a flutter of paparazzi cameras (she said yes, of course).

But there's one couple that no one on the Internet can get over: Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin. The 19-year-old Canadian singer and 21-year-old American model made their romance official at the glamorous annual event, after months of speculation that the two were an item.

But their debut as a couple isn't what has everyone talking the morning after. Like all of the other celebs that actually followed this year's "Heavenly Bodies" theme, Baldwin wore an elaborate gown with a ridiculously long train, and a video of him stepping around it is touching hearts everywhere.

Footage of him fixing her dress is also making the rounds, because it's such a sweet and simple gesture that shows a man really cares.

Seriously, get you a man who looks after your the way Mendes looks after Baldwin's gown.

Both Mendes and Baldwin celebrated their love with a series of adorable photos on Instagram from the star-studded night.
