But fashion’s big night provides a chance to turn the tables and this year’s pairings didn’t disappoint.
Taking the accolade for the night’s most devastatingly attractive couple were Rooney Mara
and gothic mastermind, Riccardo Tisci, pictured above.
Givenchy’s creative director recently told Grazia
that he and his label were “obsessed with her” – and their electrifying union certainly thrilled crowds.
Contrasting their smouldering look was fashion maven Sarah Jessica Parker
, who played vintage princess to Valentino
on the night.
Meanwhile, all-girl teams also made their mark, with Stella McCartney
flanked by rapper M.I.A and Hollywood star Cameron Diaz.
