I have two reasons for writing a second post on the Met Gala red carpet. (The first post is my best dressed list of the dazzling ladies, published yesterday.)

The first reason is kind of selfish. I liked Amber Heard’s Giambattista Valli dress. I was increasingly captivated by Emma Stone’s side-swept braid and her hot-pink Thakoon look. I secretly admired the gothic, noir feel of Beyonce in Givenchy. They might not have made my top 10 best dressed, but I needed another way to fit them in.

The second is that I couldn’t get over the pictures I was seeing of pure love. It started Monday night, as my Pinterest feed was blowing up with image after image of gorgeous gowns and dapper men in their black-tie best.

Among the bright colors and glamorous faces, I saw a handful of shots of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds looking perfectly in love. The blonde beauty radiated with a happiness that could have made any ensemble look spectacular. But she was wearing a beautiful dress — a shimmering, blush pink Gucci Premiere dress, to be exact.

Later, I saw a Buzzfeed article. Beyonce lost her ring, and Jay Z helped her find it. You know the joke, he liked it so he put a ring on it. The pair looked fabulous, giggling with each other in the middle of the red carpet, surrounded by a sea of photographers.

That was the final straw, I had to post more of my favorite looks. So this time, here are my best dressed couples from the 2014 Met Gala.
