When one thinks of an iconic red carpet fashion moment, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s matching denim ensembles were unforgettable. Worn to the 2001 American Music Awards, their looks consisted of a patchwork floor-length gown, a light-wash denim suit, with matching hat, handbag and diamond jewellery.
Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z Carter
Attending the 2004 MTV Music Awards, Beyoncé and Jay-z’s gold-themed outfits were one of many memorable ensembles worn by the power couple, but easily they’re most iconic to date. Turning heads, Beyoncé effortlessly sports her trademark honey-blonde hair, with a jewel-embellished gold rompers. While Jay-Z made a statement in an all-white suit, with a gold tie and classic ’00s fedora.
Jennifer Lopez and Diddy
When it came to the early ’00s, Jennifer Lopez’s fashion moments were beyond iconic. However, one of her more memorable ensembles appeared at the 2000 MTV Music Awards, alongside then-boyfriend Diddy. At the event, Lopez kept her look monochromatic in a white crop top, jeans, studded belt and embellished bandana headband. Matching his date, Diddy donned an oversized white T-shirt, large cross necklace and jeans.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
When the pair were together, their red carpet looks were unforgettable. One of their best ensembles took place at the British Academy Film Awards in 2014. Wearing matching tuxedos, the couple kept it classy with skinny-fit, black suits and matching bow-ties.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
Making their red carpet debut, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez turned up to the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party arm-in-arm. And while their romance surprised some, their matching outfits made just as strong a statement. Gomez stunned in a red, floor-length gown, while her then-boyrfriend sported a classic, black suit with a pop of red on his suit pocket, we can only assume to match his date.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Showing up husbands all around the world, Will Smith’s infamous “here’s my amazing wife” red carpet moment at the 2007 Screen Actors Guild Awards, has gone down as one of the most iconic. In an effort to direct photographers to his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, Smith wore a simple black suit with matching shirt. The star of the show, Pinkett-Smith wore a bright pink, floor-length gown with matching metallic accessories.
Madonna and Michael Jackson
A couple many forget about, Madonna and Michael Jackson’s 1991 Academy Awards red carpet moment was anything but forgettable. Madonna went all out with Marilyn Munroe-inspired blonde curls, with an embellished silver gown and a winter white fur shawl. Jackson looked equally as imprressive in a monochrome tuxedo and statement gold belt.
David Beckham and Victoria Beckham
Primarily known for their impeccable style moments, David and Victoria Beckham are easily one of Hollywood’s most stylish couples. However, they outdid themselves while attending the 2014 Met Gala. The Beckhams matched in white ensembles, Victoria in a white strapless, floor-length gown and David looking sharp in a white, tailored tuxedo.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
While Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are red carpet veterans, their showstopping appearance at the 2016 Academy Awards took the cake. Teigen stunned in a sheer, low-cut gown, embroidered with roses, while Legend looked sharp in a full tuxedo. Most importantly, Teigen’s beautiful baby bump was on full display.
Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan
While every red carpet fashion moment gets us talking, Rose McGowan and Marilyn Manson’s appearance at the 1998 MTV Music Awards became one of the most memorable of all time. While Manson sported bright-red hair and an animal-print tuxedo, McGowan turned heads in a barely-there, sheer mini dress, minus her bra. And clearly, looked incredible as always.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Despite Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s lack of looking anything but incredible on the red carpet, their 2016 Met Gala looks were unforgettable. Debuting their relationship, the memorable moment had the pair matching in technology-themed gear, including robotic arms and a metal-embellished gown.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian
Debuting her baby bump, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s appearance at the 2017 Met Gala certainly broke the internet. Williams dropped jaws in a stunning emerald-green dress, while her husband kept his look sharp with a black tuxedo and the face of a proud father-to-be.
FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson
While FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson’s 2015 Met Gala looks seemed uneventful compared to their peers’, Twigs’ gown exhibited a gasp-worthy gown. Wearing a piece by designer Christopher Kane, her multi-coloured gown included discreet imagery of male genitalia. Pattinson, on the other hand, took a fashion risk through his obscure collar choice.
