‘A great evening with my wonderful husband’: Victoria Beckham tweets romantic picture with David at the Met Gala
David and Victoria Beckham looked every inch the power couple as they arrived at the Met Gala in New York on Monday night, hosted by Vogue editor, Anna Wintour.

She shared a picture of her looking adoringly at David, with the message: ‘So proud to share such a great evening with my wonderful husband x vb #MetGala #CharlesJames’.

Holding hands as they posed for photographs on the red carpet, the stunning couple were the main attraction in their matching white outfits.
Victoria, 40, looked lovely in a white column dress from her own collection and matching white vertiginous heels. She accessorised with diamond drop earrings and a matching bracelet and ring.
Despite the length of her gown and the height of her heels, she glided effortlessly up the steps into the Metropolitan Museum Of Art where the event was being held.

Wintour – who is co-hosting this year’s party with Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper – is charging $25,000 at ticket, $10,000 more than last year’s price.
The theme is White Tie And Decorations, an ode to Anglo-American designer Charles James.
Victoria and David have remained by each other’s sides all day – they were pictured leaving their hotel earlier in the day as they headed out for a spot of lunch together.
