Always on point when it comes to their fashion choices, the couple also showcased their undeniable chemistry when they hit the red carpet ahead of the event.

Crawford, 57, stepped out in a purple gown that hugged her 5ft9in figure, and helped showcase her long legs with a slit up the left side.
Before heading out to the event Crawford announced the designer of her purple number by spelling it out three times on Instagram: ‘Versace Versace Versace.’
In the video, the longtime covergirl did a mock catwalk through the hallway of the residence they are staying at while in New York City.
The legendary catwalk queen — who helped put the ‘super’ in the ‘supermodel’ term in the 1980s and 90s — would also get a lift in a pair of silver heels, all while holding on to a matching clutch purse.
Rounding out her ensemble, the Illinois native had her brown tresses styled long and flowing well past her shoulder with a part on the left.
Gerber, 61, held his own in the fashion department in a classic black suit and tie that he matched with a white dress shirt and black dress shoes.
The loved up couple, who just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary this past May, packed on the PDA with a number of loving touches while on the red carpet.
