Met Gala 2012: The Cutest Couples Face Off! (PHOTOS)

If the White House Correspondents' Dinner is Nerd Prom, then the Met Gala is Fashionista Prom. The dresses are way better than in high school, of course, but the couples are just as cute and the photo opps just as awkward -- and we totally love it.

At tonight's big event, there were the fabulous designer-gal pal pairs, like Alber Elbaz and Emma Stone and Jason Wu and Karlie Kloss. Then there were the real-life couples, like Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake and the ever-glowing Tom Brady and Gisele. (There were also those couples who were half missing -- Jay-Z, where were you??)

Despite the prestige and elegance of the event, our favorite couples were surprisingly laidback -- and publicly affectionate. Below, see the adorable Met Gala pairs who graced Monday night's red carpet. Who's got your vote for Cutest Couple?
