Hip-hop star and music mogul Jay Z staged a false proposal to his star-wife Beyoncé on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Costume Institute Gala after Mrs. Carter dropped one of hers.
The couple were among the A-list guests at the annual event on Monday, May 5.
Beyoncé wore a sheer black Givenchy dress with a veil headpiece, and when she dropped one of her Lorraine Schwartz rings, Mr. Carter was quick to pick it up and propose once again in front of many photographers.
The rapper wore a white grain de poudre jacket and black tux pants, also by Givenchy Haute Couture.
Lowering himself to a bent position, the 44-year old rapper took Beyoncé’s hand in his and lovingly put the jewelry back into place. She accepted, of course, with a beautiful smile on her face.
They were not the only important celebrity couple at the event.
Charlize Theron and Sean, Penn, Ryan Reynolds and his beautiful wife Blake Lively were there, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, Victoria and David Beckham, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, Johnny Depp and his new fiancee Amber Heard, and Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman, were all among the attendees.
The gala was overseen by Vogue U.S. editor and iron lady Anna Wintour, and it was co-hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper. It took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
