Blake Lively didn’t need to be like Jaden Smith and bring dreadlocks to the 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Monday night. Instead, she brought husband Ryan Reynolds to the New York gala.

The two lovingly gazed into each other’s eyes at the event, posing for photos with their arms wrapped around each other. Lively and Reynolds could be a shoe-in for best dressed couple.

Lively stunned in a gold dress that had blue feathers as the train. She tied the look together with sapphire diamonds. Reynolds wore a black tuxedo, but made sure to wear a blue bow tie so he would match his wife.

The couple is a favorite at the annual event, which is held on the first Monday of May every year.

The Met Gala has a theme that always changes. For the 2017 edition of the gala, designers chose to highlight the work of Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo. The 74-year-old fashion designer is the second living stylish to be celebrated by the Costume Institute.

“Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past 40 years,” Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute curator in charge, said in an October 2016 press release. “By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.”

The event can be serious, but Lively and Reynolds seemingly lightened up the mood. The actress trolled her husband on Instagram after they attended Time’s “100” gala days earlier. She poked fun at the “Deadpool” actor for blocking singer John Legend’s performance. She made it seem like the post was a tribute to her husband, but it was really to Legend, who is married to Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen.

“Congratulations to the most influential person in my life,” Lively wrote Thursday. “The best man I know…you deserve this @time 100 honor ... If only my husband wasn't blocking you in this shot. I'm so sorry @johnlegend.”

The couple is used to trading jokes on social media. Reynolds cracked one right before Lively’s movie, “Shallow,” hit theaters over the summer last year.

“Actual footage from the first date with my wife. I was trying to surprise her and totally forgot I was a f---ing shark. @shallowsmovie@blakelivelyhe wrote. Of course, it wasn’t footage from their first date, but a snippet from the trailer.

Lively and Reynolds have two children together: daughters James and Ines.
