Pairs Division: Smith and Lowe

Posted on September 07, 2011

We’ve featured Matt here a few times now because we absolutely love his street style, but many Bitter Kittens thought we were nuts for featuring him and nuts to think his ’80s-inspired casual looks were anything to get excited about. To which we say…

Shut your big face. He’s fabulous.

What a chic little alterna-couple they make.

HE: As we said, looks fabulous. Love the cut of that tuxedo and love him for not wearing something standard but not veering too far off the style reservation. Love the vest (yes, Brits: “waistcoat.” Happy now?), love the huge lapels, love the shoes, love the hair, and the hem on his pants isn’t perfect, but it’s damn close. Score: 9/10. The only reason he didn’t get a 10 is because he’s standing for pictures with his jacket open. Tsk.

SHE: Is breaking all of the rules. Well, our rules, anyway. See, we don’t love lace and we REALLY don’t love mermaid dresses, but somehow this looks chic and head-turning on her. Maybe it’s the relative lack of accessories; maybe it’s the messy hair (another choice we don’t normally love, but works here), or maybe the fact that she’s standing next to him and they make such a good pair (visually, at least). Maybe it’s just the big smile. Whatever the alchemy is, it’s working. Score: 9/10. We couldn’t live with ourselves if we gave a black lace mermaid gown with JBF hair a 10.

Combined Score: 9/10. Well done, Britlebrities.
