Best Dressed Couples
1. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
I am not in the least bit ashamed to admit that I have a big fat girl crush on Miranda Kerr. Step aside Orlando, I want to be your wife’s, um, wife? Well, not really, but if I could marry her clothes I would. She always looks so effortlessly cool, whether she’s strutting down a Victoria Secret runway or strolling around the streets of New York with the adorable baby Flynn. Together, Orlando and Miranda are the ultimate power couple – never putting anything less than a fashionable foot forward while they make their mark on the world. Here’s hoping these two last.
2. Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
What would a best dressed couples list be without the Queen of Fashion and her King of Rock and Roll? In a wedding that had almost more hype than the royal wedding, this couple’s big day was one of the hottest tickets on the fashion calendar. Ever. Kate’s style has really varied throughout the years; from junkie to boho, she seems to have settled on rock and roll groupie which not only is apt but is a style that suits her to the ground. Jamie’s style is cool, but at times can be a little generic indie rock. That said, being married to Moss is always going to get him on this list.
3. Olivia Palermo and Joshua Jackson
I used to hate Olivia Palermo. If The City was anything to go by, Olivia and Whitney needed to step away from the spotlight. Far away. But little by little, this socialite wheedled her way back into the spotlight with a much more favourable outcome; the furs, the immaculate hair and that quintessential New York style that has captured all our hearts since Gossip Girl graced our screens back in 2007. Who knew walking a dog in heels could actually look not that ridiculous and even quite a fashionable affair? Throw a smoking hot model boyfriend into the mix and you’re on to a winning team.
4. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Who would have ever thought a Kardashian would end up on this list? Well, it definitely helps when you have Scott Disick as your arm candy and baby daddy. Known for his outrageous behaviour and second-to-none ability to piss off Kourtney, this guy also oozes summer in the Hamptons style. He also owns a cane and pairs it with a smoking jacket and somehow pulls it off in a non-creepy Hugh Heffner way. As for Kourtney, well, there’s not a whole lot that can be said for her style credentials. She thought teaming up with Dorothy Perkins was a fashion-forward move. I mean, really? But despite that, this couple seem to make it work fashion wise and for that they’ve earned a spot on this list.
5. Victoria and David Beckham
This WAG was once scorned by fashion’s elite, but now she is not only celebrated but adored by many. Her collections go from strength to strength every season, and she is also the poster girl for every business-savvy yummy mummy out there. Always groomed and polished, this lady has finally made transition from Spice Girl to one of the most admired women in the world. I don’t think there needs to be too much of an explanation given as to why David Beckham paired with VB is on this list. Google his 2013 H&M campaign. Thank me later.
Worst Dressed Couples
1. Kim Kardashian and Kayne West
This couple is a fashion match made in hell. One doesn’t know how to dress for her figure and the other doesn’t know how to dress. Full stop. Every time these two step out together or separately, a little part inside of me dies. Kim is allegedly a size zero, which is hard to believe when her ass borderline needs its own post code. She is such a beautiful woman but gets it so, so wrong. I don’t particularly like Kayne – he would have ended up on this list with or without his disastrous other half’s help. For being a douche.
2. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.
I love these two. They are an insanely beautiful couple who both scrub up so well – separately. But something awful happens when these two beautiful people are out and about together; sweatpants happen and they are not a good look. Mila looks scruffy and Ashton just looks average. Maybe it’s to look inconspicuous and blend in with us non-celebs, but last time I checked not all of us ‘normal people’ feel it necessary to ‘casual it up’ on what feels like a never-ending daily basis for these two. For God’s sake – get yourselves back on the best dressed list, stat!
3. Britney Spear and Justin Timberlake
Now, I know this dynamic duo are far from being still together, but their fashion choices as a couple will go down in history as being the most bizarre and hauntingly ugly of all time. Was it really necessary to wear head-to-toe denim to a red carpet event? Head-to-toe as Justin wore a denim cowboy hat. I know – I can’t believe that exists either. Their outfits were so appalling that when you Google ‘Britney and Justin’, ‘Britney and Justin Denim’ is the second search item to come up. I kid you not. There may be a lot of bad couple outfits on this list, but this one hands-down takes first place. It may have been 2001, but that’s still not an excuse for this disaster.
4. Katie Price and, well, anyone.
Luckily a photo says a thousand words. I have none.
5. David and Samantha Cameron
This man is the Prime Minister of a country with just over 60 million citizens. Can someone please get him a stylist? The only thing worse than David’s office clothes are David’s out-of-office clothes. Do I really want to remind you all of the black-shoes-without-socks holiday snaps of the Camerons on Vay-Cay 2012? Oh, well, I just did. But poor David isn’t the only one to blame here. It takes two to make a badly dressed couple. While not all of Samantha’s outfit choices are mind numbingly boring, a good majority of them are. When pictured in 2012 with Carla Bruni and Michelle Obama, it was clear who won the most fashion forward first lady title. It was not Sam.
