These football stars scored some touchdowns with their looks for the 2019 Met Gala.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, of course, made an appearance alongside his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen for their 11th Met Gala together. The couple looked stunning in their color-coordinated outfits. Brady, 41, donned a velvet, maroon tuxedo by Tom Ford, complementing Gisele’s pleated, sustainable metallic gown by Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Brady shared a photo from the evening on his Instagram, jokingly writing, “No we are not your Mom and Dad. #MetGala.”

Last year, the six-time Super Bowl winner opted for a Versace tuxedo featuring a black turtleneck underneath a jacket featuring elaborate gold embroidering on the lapel, becoming a meme when jokes spread on social media about how his ensemble made him look like a villain and others likening his look to a magician.

When PEOPLE asked Brady to name his favorite part of the gala, he jokingly replied “the end.”

Odell Beckham Jr.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver didn’t play it safe this Met Gala.

Odell Beckham Jr. arrived at the event wearing Thom Browne kilt and sleeveless tuxedo jacket, but that wasn’t his original game plan, according to GQ.

“I told them no off the rip,” Beckham told GQ of the kilt when at Thom Browne’s midtown offices on Sunday night before the Met. “I was like, ‘There’s no chance I’m wearing that. On the way here I was like, ‘Can you make sure they bring it just in case? I might just do it just to do it.’ ”

And the kilt took home the win over regular tuxedo pants! Beckhman Jr. also shared a photo on his social media, alongside Brady and fellow football stars Julian Edelman and Saquon Barkley.
