JAY Z AND BEYONCE
Jamie Hince and Kate Moss
Despite making some questionable personal choices, Kate Moss rarely puts a stylistic toe out of line. Moss has a history of dating men who are more Saint Laurent than Superdry – Johnny Depp, Pete Doherty and her daughter’s father, Dazed & Confused founder Jefferson Hack, and Jamie is no exception. Her and the Kills guitarist, a couple bound by a love of music and neckscarves, are the perfect example of rock-influenced dressing past your 20s. Hince’s wardrobe is built around a capsule of androgynous his n hers staples – skinny jeans, double-breasted coats, leather jackets, chelsea boots – the result being a penchant for effortless layering built around a small colour palette. As a couple they often complement each other rather than mirror – wearing differing shades of the same colour or focusing around a set piece, such as a biker jacket.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Perhaps a controversial choice, this couple doesn’t always get it right, but when they do, it’s a beautiful sight. Iit’s safe to say that both of them have come a very long way stylistically since their first steps into the limelight (especially Kim, who had…er…no clothes on). With a penchant for (Is That Jacket) Margiela, Rick Owens and Givenchy, both do their bit for diversity – Kanye proving that leather skirts and crystal facemasks have their place in an urban wardrobe and Kim proving that you don’t need to have a BMI lower than the inches of your stilettos to wear high fashion designers. Although his methods of wardrobe synchronicity may have most girlfriends running for the hills, (remember the Keeping up with the Kardashians episode where Kanye unscrupulously went through his beloveds closet, throwing out anything not to his taste?), they both prove that the couple that shops together, stays together. For now, at least.
James Righton and Keira Knightley
The Klaxon and the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit actress got married last year, her in Chanel, him in a navy suit with powder blue tie, both in Ray Bans. Whilst their coordinating formalwear is slick and on point, this couple also gets an A grade for just-threw-it-on relaxed casual outfits, managing to pull variations of ‘jeans and a tshirt’ out of the bag without looking perpetually hungover or like they’re late for college.
