Met Gala 2022 ‘love square’: Jacob Elordi, Kaia Gerber, Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler attend

The 2022 Met Gala was packed with A-list celebrities dressed in their best for fashion’s biggest night of the year.

And while they certainly didn’t show it on the red carpet, some of the stars at the lavish New York event were actually involved in an awkward “love square” storyline.

Euphoria star Jacob Elordi, 24, arrived solo after previously attending the 2021 Met Gala after-party with ex-girlfriend Kaia Gerber, 20.

However, the couple – who went public with their romance in November 2020 – split two months later in November 2021, with Kaia moving on with hunky actor Austin Butler, 30 weeks later.

She and Austin have since confirmed their romance and stepped up the PDA on the red carpet this year while Jacob posed alone.

Jacob and Kaia are thought to have ended their romance amicably, with The Kissing Booth actor telling Men’s Health in December 2021: “She handles herself wonderfully in public.”

“I learned so much from her about how to deal with it, how to deal with it and just do anything about it, you know?”

Despite a few potentially awkward run-ins, Jacob, Kaia, Austin and Vanessa were all dripping with confidence as they posed up a storm on the red carpet.

Kaia, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford, worked the iconic staircase at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art like it was a runway as she posed up a storm in her elaborate dress.

The beauty really embraced this year’s theme – “golden glamour” – in a metallic lace dress that showed off her physique.

The stunning dress cascaded over her sculpted body and down to the floor.

One person who definitely seemed a fan of her looks was her boyfriend Austin, who looked completely loved up as the couple got ready for a sweet photo.

Meanwhile, Jacob exuded sex appeal in a stunning black Burberry suit adorned with sequins.
