The year of the matching celebrity couple
In the "post"-pandemic resurgence of red carpet events, "couple coordination has taken over pop culture yet again," writes Escher Walcott for Nylon. "Clashing ensembles between romantic pairs faded away and were replaced with complementary looks, as romantically linked stars merged aesthetically to create a tantalizing new bout of power couple imagery." Walcott cites Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker and Rihanna and A$AP Rocky as key perpetuators of the trend's revival in the last year. {Nylon}
