How was your Memorial Day weekend? What did you wear? (Surely Kim wasn’t the only one wearing white!) Did you bust out the bikini, hit the trails in your finest yoga pants or finally debut your prettiest new sundress?
If the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala crowned a King and Queen each year, Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson definitely would have nabbed top honors (probably more than once). The couple has become a red carpet staple at the annual fashion fête, and seeing them is always a highlight for PeopleStyleWatch.com editors. (Note: If these two ever break up, we’re quitting life and retiring to our beds with unlimited Netflix and Cheetos.) Before the fashion-forward duo have what’s bound to be a repeat glam performance tonight, here’s a look back at their best moments from Met Gala’s past.

It all started in 2008, when Kruger skipped the floor-skimming gowns for a silver Alberta Ferretti cocktail dress featuring sequin embellishment on the shoulder. Jackson complemented his leading lady in a white tuxedo jacket and coordinating pants, also Alberta Ferretti. In 2009, the German actress went short once again in a white Chanel Couture mini with floral appliqués. And she didn’t walk the carpet with Karl Lagerfeld; instead, Jackson served as her her arm candy, looking dapper as ever in a classic tux. For their third straight Met Gala appearance, Kruger selected a simple, sleek white Calvin Klein gown, and Jackson ditched the bow tie for a scarf.

The couple’s most high-fashion moment came in 2011, when Kruger chose a nude embellished top and black skirt from one of her favorite designers, Jason Wu. Jackson selected a Dior Homme suit with white piping around the lapel. Then for last year’s party, the star selected a sheer, lace Chanel Couture dress and dip-dyed the end of her ponytail pink to match the Punk theme. Jackson didn’t rock any Billy Idol plaid, but he did mix it up pairing a red tie with his Dior Homme suit.
Sure Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and more stylish couples give us red carpet butterflies, but there is something just so freakin’ cute about Josh and Diane. Do you agree? Tell us: Are you excited to see the couple tonight? Any bets on what they’ll be wearing?
It might not feel like spring in NYC, but editors are pretty close to boycotting their boots and tights for the rest of the season. We’ve been bookmarking pieces for our warm-weather wardrobes for a while now (in hopes of willing the nice weather to happen), but one thing has just been added to the top of our must-haves list: a mint-colored piece of clothing.

From right, Diane Kruger teamed a mint Rebecca Minkoff dress from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection (which featured voluminous sleeves) with floral printed Peter Pilotto for Target slip-ons (still available and on sale if you want to nab a pair) while running errands in L.A. Next up, Rihanna selected a coordinating crop top (naturally) and mini skirt in the perfect pastel shade for an outing in New York earlier this week.
Across the pond, Pippa Middleton chose a satin coat dress for a friend’s wedding, sticking with the allover green theme by adding olive accessories. And lastly Rita Ora (pictured in NYC) went for the most unique ensemble in tweed cropped trousers and a wrap sweater (both Acne Studios) featuring a mint-green swirl print.
What do you think of the pastel trend? Will you be adding some mint pieces to your wardrobe? Share your thoughts below.

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw serpentine style, crisp collars and a neckline that’s just not picking up steam.
PEOPLE.com readers really can’t resist a good LBD. Proof: This week’s best dressed star. Reese Witherspoon trumped two celebs in floor-skimming gowns for the title, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.
Don’t get us wrong: The actress looks amazing in the long-sleeve Valentino design (worn to the Great American Songbook event in N.Y.C.) featuring an on-trend scalloped neckline. Our favorite part of the look is her textured waves and sexy smoky eye, but in general we felt it was a safe move for the star who earned close to 23,000 “Love It Votes” (a 90 percent approval rating!) to beat out the competition.
Trailing Witherspoon’s stylish footsteps, Elizabeth Hurley nabbed the No. 2 spot in a slinky dove-gray halter with interlocking rings at the neckline at the London Royal Portrait Gallery event. She completed her glam look with a white fur coat and earned an 81 percent “Love It” rating from readers. And rounding out the top 3 was our personal favorite this week, Diane Kruger, who stunned in a white Elie Saab gown with a sheer skirt at the Better Angels premiere in Berlin.
We want to know: Did Reese deserve the top spot? Or were you hoping for a more formal look like Diane’s white gown? Share your thoughts below!
You’re not the only one who can’t wait to get her hands on Target’s designer collaborations; celebs line up to get their hands on the coveted pieces too. And the latest collection, which featured Peter Pilotto‘s signature allover prints, was no exception. From left, Diane Kruger, Taylor Schilling and actress Dree Hemingway were among the stars who turned up to fête the launch Thursday.
