Brooklyn Beckham and fiancée Nicola Peltz practiced for their walk down the aisle with a romantic red carpet moment.

The couple shared some PDA on Monday as they arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the Costume Institute Gala, putting on a dazzling display in their coordinated Valentino ensembles.

Peltz, 26, appeared to channel Marilyn Monroe from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, hitting the red carpet in a textured sparkling pink gown with spaghetti straps and a short train. She accessorized the look with some long blush evening gloves and a pair of chandelier earrings.

"Honestly, it was the first dress I tried on and I loved it," Peltz told Vogue of her look, as Beckham, 22, clad in a classic black tuxedo, added: "She tried this on and then I kind of... I matched it. That's how it goes."

Beckham announced his engagement to Peltz in July 2020 after they made their relationship public earlier that year in January. "Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes xx I am the luckiest man in the world," he wrote on Instagram last summer. "I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day. I love you baby xx."

They also chimed in on the benefit's theme, In America. "I'm trying to make him an American right now, I don't want him to go back," Peltz gushed of her husband-to-be, with whom she lives in Los Angeles.

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was delayed from its usual scheduled date on the first Monday in May after last year's event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
