Perhaps the most unexpected couple made their debut at the 2018 Met Gala. Elon Musk and Grimes appeared together on the red carpet.

The musician and the SpaceX CEO/Tesla co-founder have been flirt-tweeting back and forth for a while, and reportedly met when Musk discovered Grimes beat him to a “Rococo Basilisk” joke on Twitter.

The two were dressed in black-and-white for the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & the Catholic Imagination” theme, a topic which heavily contrasts to their interest in artificial intelligence and technology. See the couple below.
