Like chic fairy tale characters or something.

Style-wise, he’s just about perfect. We’re a bit bored with these monochromatic menswear trends on the red carpet, but in this case the blues are such brilliant shades and they play up his eyes so well that we can’t disagree with the choice. If we want to get really nitpicky (and when do we not?) his pocket square looks like a napkin at a child’s birthday party. Other than that, he is, as we said, just about perfect.

As for her, well… we’re not in love with this at all. The bustline is distractingly overdone, the waist sits too high and the skirt’s a bit too short. The only reason she doesn’t look bad is because she’s so pretty and because she clearly chose the outfit to show off her legs, which it’s doing nicely. But that thing is doing her no favors.
