In case you somehow missed it, this Hollywood power couple made quite the statement as they fashionably entered the 2021 Met Gala. Dripping in sequins and feathers, Camila looked stunning in an all-purple getup complete with matching makeup. And the Treat You Better singer complemented his girlfriend perfectly with a contrasting all-black fit. We love to see it.

Shawn was serving a more grungy vibe next to his fabulously dressed gal. And it was no coincidence; the musician said that one of the things he's learned about fashion since rising to fame is to let out his "darker side." Mendes explained, "For years I have never really dug into this. I think a lot of it is freedom to express yourself... New to me is [expressing someone you want to be for a day."
