Amal Alamuddin & George Clooney At The 2016 Met Gala Didn't Happen, But It Would Have Been Great

I like to think of this duo as Fashion's First Couple, if only because they clean up so, so well. Of course I'm talking about Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney, who skipped the 2016 Met Gala and were sorely missed on the red carpet. Clooney is pretty much never seen in anything other than a dapper suit, while Alamuddin sure knows how to rock a classic gown like nobody's business. So, what would these two have worn to the Manus x Machina Met Gala? I guess we'll never know for sure.

Alamuddin usually opts for very simple yet bold outfits and clean styling on the red carpet. At the 2015 Met Gala, she wore a strapless red dress with a ruffled skirt. She kept her long hair down in elegant waves that topped off the look flawlessly. Clooney, on the other hand, stuck to a tried and true classic with his dark suit and crisp white shirt and white bow tie. So, why did they skip out on Monday night's event? Neither the actor nor the lawyer are active on social media, so we have no clues as to where they were while the festivities were going down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

To ease the pain of missing them, let's look back at a few of their best moments on the red carpet.

Red is definitely Alamuddin's color.

Although I'm not complaining about this soft pink cocktail dress either.

She looks like a walking Academy Award in head to toe gold, while Clooney rocks his signature black.
