Madonna & Guy Richie voted the best dressed celebrity couple
Readers of InStyle magazine have voted Madonna husband Guy Ritchie as the worldâ€™s best-dressed celebrity couple.
Over 3,500 readers, decided that Guy Ritchie â€” whether tuxed up or in Barbour jacket â€” is the perfect compliment to his glamorous wife. Brad and Angelina’s smoldering red carpet presence brought them in second and Posh and Becks, and their matchy, matchy designer outfits and his and hers hairstyles, have had to settle for third, nominated as the most co-ordinated couple on the list.
Couples which made the magazine’s best dressed list include:
Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes â€” It was felt that their red-carpet public appearances evoke the Hollywood glamor of a bygone era and the couple were deemed most Old School Hollywood.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale epitomize Best rock royalty, with individual looks that compliment each other. Both have their own edgy style but always end up looking fantastic as a couple.
Cutest are Kate Bosworth and James Rousseau who the team at InStyle felt lead the young Hollywood set by choosing highly coveted clothes, without being too edgy.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher â€” neither dress as though they are making a desperate bridging effort across their 15-year age gap. Instead both make age-appropriate wardrobe choices that compliment each other and are most complementary as a couple.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick â€” always immaculately well-dressed
Kelly Brook and Billy Zane â€” no one does an open-neck and three-day stubble quite like Billy, while Kelly can equally look amazing wearing Riviera chic, gorgeous tea dresses and curve-enhancing bikinis.
Kirsten Dunst and Johnny Borrell included in the list due to their laid back, not over-styled individual looks.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck â€” best all-American kids and role models to yummy mummies and thrusting business boys everywhere.
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise â€” Permanently glamorous, yet Tom is happy to let his wife shine in show-stopping gowns.
Liv Tyler and Royston Langdon â€” both are excellent at casual or more ‘done’ dress and are the perfect combination of UK/US style.
Kate Moss and Pete Doherty (before the bust-up) â€” together they had a cute way of stealing each other’s style â€” she’d turn his cast offs into Sunday morning chic or wear his trilby, and he’d borrow her bags, jewelery or dresses!
Not forgetting the all-time classics â€” here are InStyle’s list of the top original style couples:
John and Jackie Kennedy â€” all American and all-immaculate
Mick & Bianca Jagger â€” her white YSL wedding suit still inspires millions
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor â€” flawed marriages but spot-on wardrobe choices
David & Angie Bowie â€” They invented androgynous chic
Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin â€” French charm combined with British style. He proved that you don’t need to be handsome if you’re dapper
Johnny and Kate â€” before Brangelina, the original couple far too beautiful and stylish
Sid and Nancy â€” inspiration for the Doherty generation
Johnny Cash and June Carter â€” a bit country, a bit rock and roll
Trish Halpin, the magazine’s editor has said: “These days being part of a stylish partnership doubles your celebrity credentials. There’s no point looking fabulous if your partner lets you down and men today have to keep up. From Brad and Angelina to Demi and Ashton, a stylish partner is a woman’s ultimate accessory”.
