Several of Hollywood’s finest joined forces at this year’s Baby2Baby Gala to honor Salma Hayek, the Giving Tree Award recipient, and help provide everyday necessities to impoverished children.
Aside from stars like Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, Alessandra Ambrosio, Hailey Bieber, Chrissy Teigen, and siblings Nicole and Sofia Richie, Hollywood’s hottest couples graced the red carpet. They turned the gala into a date night for a worthy cause.
1. Cole Sprouse and Ari Fournier: A Dashing Duo in Black
Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse, 31, and model Ari Fournier, 25, have been dating since 2021. They have shared several red-carpet appearances, the most recent being at the Baby2Baby gala, where they were pictured looking all loved up in matching black ensembles.
Cole had his arm wrapped around his girlfriend’s tiny waist and was handsome in a black suit with a crisp white shirt and a satin necktie. He finished his neat look with black dress shoes and his signature side-parted curly fringe.
His girlfriend of two years, Ari, looked glamorous in an archival Elie Saab gown with a structured pleated fan bodice and a waistband that accentuated her slim physique. The bottom part of her gorgeous dress featured a long black column skirt with a thigh-high slit to showcase her long, toned legs.

A pair of diamond earrings and a ring added a touch of sparkle to her look. Her shiny black clutch and matching black pumps featuring triple ankle straps and high heels rounded out her elegant head-to-toe black ensemble.

3. Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst: Contrasting Sophistication at the Gala
Jesse Plemons, 35, and Kirsten Dunst, 41, dressed to the nines for the charity gala, opting for contrasting outfits that exuded sophistication.
The Fargo actor wore a traditional tuxedo with a white shirt and a bowtie, finished with black oxford shoes. On the other hand, his beautiful wife looked elegant in a semi-sheer, sleeveless gown from Dries Van Noten’s Fall 2023 collection.
For $2,795 at Mytheresa, the feminine “Devona” dress features strikingly colorful floral prints highlighting the Belgian fashion designer’s green thumb. Its classic column silhouette, jewel neckline, and floor-sweeping hem perfectly clung to the actress’s slender form.
For some coverage, Kirsten wore a nude bodysuit underneath the see-through number.

She layered the Medium Classic Link Necklace in 18k Yellow Gold and the Small Classic Link Necklace in 18k Rose Gold around her neck and fastened a pair of the Pavé Halo Small Classic Studs to her ears.
Dunst’s glam team, composed of hairstylist Owen Gould and makeup artist Pati Dubroff, gave her look a radiant finish. Her blonde hair was pulled back into a ponytail, with a few strands left out to frame her gorgeous makeup, which included mascara, rosy blush, and red lipstick.
