Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the Grammys, All Over Press
The 10 best matching celebrity couples
Is there something in the brain that turns on a sartorial switch when you fall in love? More specifically, a penchant for matching outfits? If celebs are anything to go by, it’s a resounding “yes!”
1. KIM KARDASHIAN AND KANYE WEST
Since hooking up with the hip hop mogul, Kim’s style has morphed into line with Kanye’s, as evidenced by the well-coordinated, fashion-forward outfits the couple often wear, such as this all-black look with statement shoes.
2. JOHNNY DEPP AND WINONA RYDER
Can anything be more 1990s than the coupling known as Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder? Achingly cool boxy jackets, samey hair and a legacy of quirky roles made them the outsider celebrities of the decade.
3. KRISTEN STEWART AND ROBERT PATTINSON
Every time Bella and Edward stepped out onto the red carpet, millions ofTwilight fans’ hearts sighed. But as K-Stew and R-Pattz, they made for an equally brooding yet dashing couple, especially in dark blue.
4. DAVID AND VICTORIA BECKHAM
She may be known for her understated style now, but back in 1999 Victoria Beckham rocked up – literally – to a Versace party with her husband David Beckham in identical black leather ensembles by the label.
5. BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z
The current reigning couple of the celebrity kingdom did his-and-hers sultry at the Grammys earlier this year: Beyoncé in an “underwear as outerwear” get-up with Saint Laurent tights, Jay-Z in Tom Ford.
6. HUMPHREY BOGART AND LAUREN BACALL
This golden couple of the golden age of Hollywood had legendary on-screen chemistry and, judging by their matching white shirts – unbuttoned and tucked in – sturdy belts and pleated bottoms, similar wardrobes.
7. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND BRITNEY SPEARS
One of the most infamous matching incidents of all time, Justin and Britney walked into the 2001 American Music Awards in outfits that appeared to have been cut from the same bolt of denim, hat and bag included!
8. JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO
What to wear to public peace protests? If you’re John Lennon and Yoko Ono, pyjamas, of course. Staging their bed-ins in 1969, he wore a stripy number, while she opted for a nightgown. Both of them were very comfy.
9. PORTIA DE ROSSI AND ELLEN DEGENERES
When in doubt, wear the same majestic hue for a chic, coordinated effort. In the case of actress Portia de Rossi and comedienne Ellen Degeneres, who have been together for ten years, it was royal blue at the 2007 Oscars.
10. SERGE GAINSBOURG AND JANE BIRKIN
Known just as much for their influential bohemian style as their love affair in the 1970s, Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin were clearly not averse to matching, seen here in double-breasted coats.
