Victoria and David Beckham wore matching outfits to the Met Gala in New York City last night (05.05.4).

The 40-year-old fashion designer and her former soccer star husband, 39, both arrived at the star-studded charity event at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing cream-coloured outfits and posed happily for the cameras.

The former Spice Girls star - who has four children with her spouse - wore a stunning floor length gown, while her husband, who retired from soccer last year following a stint at French club Paris Saint Germain, paired his black bow tie and trousers with a cream suit jacket.

And the couple had a great time at the annual event, with Victoria later tweeting: ''So much fun tonight at the #MetGala Thank u team VB, amazing dress!!! I love u all x (sic)''

Meanwhile, 'Drunk in Love' singer Beyoncé was seen dropping a ring she was wearing on her right hand on the red carpet.

Her husband, 'Holy Grail' rapper Jay Z, swooped in to pick it up and stage a fake proposal, which the mother of his 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy happily accepted.

Other couples in attendance at the annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute included 'X-Men' star Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness, 'Gossip Girl' actress Blake Lively and her 'Green Lantern' star husband Ryan Reynolds.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West - who recently featured on the cover of Vogue magazine - were also guests at the prestigious event and posed for a photograph with the magazine's editor Anna Wintour.
