It's date night for Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber!

The model, 24, arrived at the 2021 Met Gala in a black Saint Laurent gown with a structured embellished plunging neckline, cool black sunglasses and Tiffany & Co. jewels. She walked hand-in-hand with her singer husband, 27, who donned a sleek black tuxedo by La Maison Drew (an extension of his Drew House label), painted sneakers and Jacquie Aiche jewelry. 

Tonight marks the first time Baldwin and Bieber, who tied the knot in September 2018, have attended the annual event as a couple.

"I feel like the Met is alway just a very cool night to celebrate fashion," Baldwin told Keke Palmer on the red carpet. "We both love fashion, and we both love being able to celebrating designers."

Baldwin, meanwhile, explained that her look was inspired by "timeless American beauty" and "the Grace Kelly's of the world." 

Last year, Baldwin surprised fans who were hoping the Biebers would make their relationship Met Gala official by hitting the red carpet solo in a memorable Alexander Wang look.

The model looked like a retro Barbie come to life in her pale pink, second-skin, long-sleeve column gown which featured an exposed like thong detailing in the back accessorized with a crystal "Wang" pin. She teamed the look with a high pony, oversize black velvet hair bow and black winged eyeliner.
