Brooklyn Beckham and wife Nicola Peltz put on a much-loved show when they arrived at the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday.
The son of fashion designer Victoria Beckham and her football club owner husband David, showed off his edgy sense of style as he wore a semi-sheer black shirt that showed off his chest.
He wore a black jacket and matching trousers with a pair of chunky shoes in the same colour.
Aspiring chef Brooklyn, 24, stood arm-in-arm with Nicola, with the actress, 28, dressed in an off-the-shoulder white dress with an expansive, sheer train.
The pair both added a touch of sparkle to their outfits by wearing matching diamond and pearl necklaces as they posed at the star-studded event.

The 2023 Met Gala returns Monday night to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, where everyone from Kim Kardashian to Paris Hilton attends the annual fundraising event.
Since 1948, stars have ascended the majestic staircase to a very exclusive party where no selfies are allowed.
Traditionally, the event took place on the first Monday of May. It was scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM EST on May 1, 2023.
This year’s theme was Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was the creative director of Chanel for a long time. He passed away at the age of 85 in 2019.
His beloved cat, Choupette, was even invited to the festivities.

The decision to honor Karl has sparked controversy given the many offensive comments he’s made over the years, from criticizing the #MeToo movement to opposing same-sex marriage.
“I’m against it for a very simple reason: in the ’60s they all said we were entitled to the difference. And now they suddenly want a civilian life,” he said Shame of same-sex marriage.
‘It’s hard to imagine – one of the daddies at work and the other at home with the baby. What would that be like for the baby? Don’t know. I see more lesbians married with babies than boys married with babies. And I also believe more in the relationship between mother and child than in that between father and child.’
Although he eventually expressed support for same-sex marriage at his Chanel haute couture show in the spring of 2013, he still said he was “less enthusiastic” about adopting same-sex children, according to the AP.
Along with Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who directs and hosts the annual event, the 2023 Met Gala was also co-hosted by Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel and also Roger Federer.
While the show may be known for its glitzy and over-the-top red carpet — with details about what goes on inside that often remain mysterious — at its heart, it’s a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
Last year, the 2022 Met Gala alone raised a total of $17.4 million, reportedly Billboard.
This year, the entry fee has increased from $30,000 to $50,000, according to Page six.

Even if you have the money, that doesn’t guarantee entry to the party.
Every guest must be invited and there is a waiting list for the coveted golden ticket.
And status matters, according to The New York Timesmeaning the hottest stars are a shoo-in for an invite.
Paris Hilton was one of the big names in attendance this year, in what was her first Met Gala.
Meanwhile, Blake Lively, a frequent visitor, announced she would not be at the party.

As for Wintour’s role in the bash, Vogue’s editor-in-chief hosts the party and oversees the guest list and even the menu.
She has been the president of the Met Gala since 1994 and continues to stand guard at every event.
