Justin Timberlake and fiancée Jessica Biel aren't exactly known for the public displays of affection, but anyone sharing a table with them at the Met Gala on Monday evening would have to disagree. The couple looked utterly besotted with one another as they shared an in-joke, tenderly leaning their heads towards the other's to touch noses.
The Illusionist actress and SexyBack singer beamed with Cheshire cat grins as they closed their eyes while lost in laughter, clearly oblivious to anyone else in the room at that moment in time. Justin, 31, looked handsome in his Tom Ford tuxedo and bow tie, which his fiancée Jessica, 30, looked incredibly graceful in her unusual Prada gown with jade stones - and of course, a rather large rock on her engagement finger which cost an estimated $130,000.
While the dress fit like a glove, it seems the 7th Heaven beauty had a little difficulty wriggling into it though. Earlier on in the evening, Jessica took to her Twitter account to tell her followers: 'I can't zip up my dress. Welcome to my world! #MetBall'.
Perhaps the champagne flutes and various wine glasses littering their table hinted towards why the private couple appeared to let their guard down. It was also their first official outing together since getting engaged last December, when Justin is believed to have popped the question at the luxurious Amangani Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The couple are believed to have already started scouting for wedding rings, after they were spotted trying on gems at jeweler shop Eli Halili in New York last Saturday. A source told People: 'They were extremely personable, comfortable and relaxed. They weren't holding hands or anything, but they just seemed comfortable with each other.'
Justin and Jessica, who have been dating on and off since January 2007, are reportedly looking at venues in Italy for their August wedding.
