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

The Met Gala 2022 was filled 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 attending the lavish event in New York City were actually involved in an awkward ‘love square’ scenario.

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

However, the couple – who went public with their romance in November 2020 – split just 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 ramped up the PDA on the red carpet this year while Jacob posed alone.

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

‘I’ve learned so much from her about how to handle it, how to deal with it and just kind of be whatever about it, you know?’

Despite some 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 of the Metropolitan Museum Of Art like it was a runway as she posed up a storm in her elaborate gown.

The beauty embrace truly embraced this year’s theme – ‘gilded glamor’ – in a metallic lace frock which put her physique on full display.

The stunning gown cascaded down her statuesque body and towards the floor.

One person who definitely seemed to be a fan of how she looked was her boyfriend Austin, who looked utterly loved-up as the couple up for sweet photo.

Meanwhile, Jacob oozed sex appeal in a stunning black Burberry suit with sequin embellishments.
