Last month, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik made their budding romance Vogue official with a Mario Testino-lensed editorial shot in Italy, but they waited until Monday night to make their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2016 Met Gala in New York City. (Somehow, we think Anna Wintour had something to do with orchestrating this.) The supermodel and her newly minted solo artist beau, who starred together in his super-sexy video for "Pillow Talk," stepped out in Tommy Hilfiger and Versace respectively — and both outfits were complete with robot-like metallic panels, in one of the more admirable efforts to adhere to the "Manus x Machina" theme we've seen thus far.

While we await the inevitable meme-ification of Malik's ensemble (Robocop, Winter Soldier, Terminator, etc.), let's take a moment to bask in the couple's collective beauty. Ah, young love.
