Robert Pattinson and fiancée FKA Twigs chose the year's most interesting event to make their first red carpet appearance as a couple. Well, interesting because Met Gala has many (not-so-cool) memories attached to former lovers Robert and Kristen Stewart. And many believe that Rob chose the venue only to prove a point to his ex.

Those who have closely followed the Robsten romance may recall that Stewart was forced to attend the Met Gala event all by herself in 2013. Though she and Rob were still dating, their relationship was almost doomed and was going through a very patchy phase back then.

Many said that Rob possibly didn't attend the event in 2013 because he wasn't sure of his future with his 'Twilight' co-star. In fact, the two also split within days of the event.

Now, it seems Pattinson was sending clear messages to his ex by attending Met Gala 2015 with Twigs. The new couple haven't been shy about showing their affection for one another in public. And now that they have made it official, the duo looked happy and comfortable with each other as they posed for pictures.

According to reports, Kristen wanted to avoid running into her ex and his new-found love Twigs, and hence decided to skip Met Gala 2015. "The Clouds of Sils Maria" actress had a really good excuse to miss the event and justify her absence.

Stewart, who previously served as the face of Chanel, had to be in Seoul for the brand's annual resort show. Smart move girl.

Clearly, it seems both Robert and Kristen have left their rocky romance far behind.
