The Top 8 Most Stylish Couples in the Fashion Industry
While some women have to help their better half in the wardrobe department, others have no problem because their partner can wear a mock turtleneck and man bun and still look like the coolest person alive (we’re looking at you, Justin O’Shea). This post is an ode to couples who share equal weight in their sartorial status, and who make us—we’ll admit it—just a tad envious! Click through to see the eight most stylish couples in the fashion industry.
The pint-sized Italian street style muse/stylist with a penchant for shoes and her handsome Dutch shoe designer husband, Louis Leeman, regularly rub shoulders with the fashion elite. The globetrotting couple met while in fashion school in Florence, and now focus on Leeman’s self-titled men’s footwear line beloved by male style icons like Jared Leto and Johnny Depp. The couple happens to be close friends with another insanely stylish couple on this list, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl, who attended their Capri nuptials this past July.
Known for their coordinating looks at formal events, the Beckhams make just about anything look good, matching sarongs included. Off the red carpet, Victoria sits at the helm of her successful eponymous label sold on Shopbop and Net-a-Porter and worn by countless A-listers, while David continues to dominate the male underwear modelling world as his side job. No big deal!
A fixture on the street style circuit, particularly during Fashion Month, Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner are the reigning creative duo behind MyTheresa. As the buying director for the global luxury e-tailer, O’Shea’s business is staying ahead of emerging brands and trends, and his personal style reflects an unapologetic approach to fashion. A fan of Prada, Acne, and Louis Vuitton, he isn’t afraid to wear a floral button-down and cowboy hat with a bespoke tailored suit. His equally stylish girlfriend and the site’s senior fashion editor, Heilbrunner is known for her mixing of high and low pieces, like a Prada pencil skirt with sport socks and tennis shoes.

If you’re a style icon with a striking male model husband who has his own crisp look, you continue to inspire and break hearts everywhere you go. It’s hard to deny the sartorial appeal of Palermo and Huebl, who rarely hit the fashion party circuit without one another and always look impeccable, even when running errands. Stars—they’re not just like us.
Fashion photographer Arthur is the super-stylish, laid-back counterpart to The Blonde Salad blogger’s bolder, playful sense of style. Arthur, who accompanies Ferragni on her many travels and frequently shoots her editorial campaigns with high-end brands, favours cool minimalism in the form of monochrome black with edgy details.
Shopbop’s style director and her fashion photographer husband are a style powerhouse. Strauss, who formerly worked as senior fashion editor at Lucky, spends her days styling shoots and discovering new brands to bring to the online shopping destination, while her husband shoots celebrity ad campaigns for brands like Marc Jacobs and Levi’s.
What do you get when one-half of the founding duo of menswear line Shipley & Halmos joins lives with half of the founding duo of cult indie label Vena Cava? One really good closet. The Brooklyn-based couple were friends for years before they began dating, and now turn heads with their unique his-and-hers style that has a polished yet playful vibe.
Though Lynd isn’t technically in the fashion industry, his place as an emerging designer and creator of innovative restaurant experiences, favorited by the A-list fashion crowd, has him frequently straddling the worlds of fashion, food, and design. As the boyfriend to fashion blogger Kelly Framel of The Glamourai, he holds his own amongst the style-minded with killer suits and perfectly tousled tresses that somewhat match Framel’s in an enviable way. Seriously, can we talk about their hair?
