Celebrity couples might just be the most talked-about topic in the entertainment sphere. Who's shacking up with who? Who's getting hitched? Who just got engaged...the questions surrounding the relationships of people we don't even personally know never seem to end. And for some reason, we just can't get enough of their love.

Well, as much as we're obsessed with the following 18 duos and their romantic love stories, we're even more in love with their personal style. Individually and as a unit, these couples prove that having an S.O. who dresses just as well as you is the key to relationship success. From pairs that complement each other perfectly to ones that highlight the notion that opposites truly do attract, we've rounded up (and ranked, for an added element of fun) the New York power couples whose coupling (and style) we've fallen head-over-heels for.

18. Lauren Bush Lauren & David Lauren
Lauren and David may both come from famous fams, but when the latter's dad is one of the greatest fashion designers ever, you know they've got that whole low-key, classic Americana aesthetic down pat. She's a fan of white button-downs, sleek blazers, and stunning cocktail dresses (oh, and FEED tote bags, obviously), and he knows how to rock a suit and super-preppy sweater-and-button-down combo like it's nobody's business (and looks to the king of cool, Hugh Grant, for style inspiration). Basically, they both prove that a sensible approach to getting dressed in the morning can go a long way.

17. Allison Williams & Ricky Van Veen
Hey, newlyweds (We can still call them that, right?)! The Girls star has undergone quite the style evolution over the years, but its her penchant for killer cocktail dresses and gowns by Giambattista Valli, Ralph Lauren, and Oscar de la Renta (the label's designer, Peter Copping, even created her wedding dress) that have made her a favorite on the red carpet. And though her husband isn't as flashy when it comes to his sartorial selections, the College Humor co-founder has stepped things up in the suit department, proving that tech guys can trade in their hoodies and tees for something a little sleeker. (Plus, there's no denying he has an enviable tie collection).

16. Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner
Regardless of how outspoken her father may be, Ivanka Trump is one classy lady. And it's no surprise that she and her real estate mogul husband (and their adorable children, for that matter) have impeccable taste when she's designing some seriously popular shoes and handbags (and encouraging women to get their hands in business, too). When you think of the ultimate New York City couple, these two are it. The real style feat is looking just as good at a gala as at the park with your kids, and they nail it like it's no big deal.

15. Tommy & Dee Hilfiger
A well-dressed fashion designer seems like an obvious statement, but when you've been around in the biz for so long and are still killing it, you know you're doing something right. The Hilfigers are all about practicality, which means that their outfits don't just look on-point — they're attainable, too. From blazers to leather jackets to full-on tuxedos, Tommy's wardrobe is the epitome of well-styled menswear. And Dee, now a designer in her own right, is the perfect sartorial complement to Tommy's classed-up style: "I have clothes that are more boho, but I also like chic and stylish pieces from Zac Posen and Valentino, and comfortable and sexy dresses from Cushnie et Ochs," she told Harper's Bazaar of her personal style. "Think classic beauty meets disco sexy. My perfect style icon would be a mix of Grace Kelly and Lauren Hutton."

14. Peter Godwin & Joanna Coles
A power couple that loves a good power look. Pair a media mogul (she's completely overhauled Cosmopolitan magazine and is a total powerhouse at Hearst) with a world-renowned author and journalist (Godwin is best known for his war coverage and foreign correspondences), and, well, it should come to no surprise that they're two of the best dressed in the publishing biz.

13. Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff
These two are the ultimate Brooklyn pair — and their individual senses of style reflect that perfectly. With Antonoff's hipster aesthetic (round glasses, flannel shirts, the works) and Dunham's daring adventures in dressing (see: her Emmys looks) they're quirky and cool in all the right ways. Plus, it doesn't hurt that his sister is fashion designer Rachel Antonoff (who claims her brother is way more stylish than she is), and Dunham's former babysitter-turned-BFF is Zac Posen, both of whom dress the actress/writer/famous feminist on the reg. It never hurts to have friends (and fam) in the right places, no?

12. Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick
I mean, they're basically Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big in real life, right? Is there really that much more to say? But really, Parker has one of the most enviable closets ever and Broderick complements her with his sleek, understated suits. The best part about these two, though, is that they look towards practicality amongst all other things when getting dressed in the morning: When you're toting kids across the city all day, comfort is key — this professional mom and dad know how to do it right.

11. Hilary Rhoda & Sean Avery
Supermodel meets ex-hockey pro is pretty much how every fairy tale begins, right? She's got tons of campaigns under her belt (and legs for days) and he was an intern in the Vogue fashion closet, so it's obvious that the way they dress is — for lack of a better word — really damn good. The world may be infatuated with the seemingly flawless model-off-duty look, but these two prove that dressing up (and to the nines) will never get old (or go out of style).

10. Barry Diller & Diane von Furstenberg
When you're both running multi-million dollar businesses, it can be difficult to maintain a successful personal relationship (let alone an extremely stylish one). But this couple's best accessory is the love and support they have for one another (on top of knowing how to take a red carpet or Fashion Week event by storm). Never forget DVF's motto: "Love is life." That clearly shines through in everything they both wear and do.

9. Brendan Fallis & Hannah Bronfman
The couple that DJs together, stays together. We don't just love Bronfman and Fallis (who have been dating for nearly four years now) for their coordinating careers — we love them for their power couple status, their cutesy public displays of affection, and, of course, their eye for style. There are only three things in life that are guaranteed: death, taxes, and the fact that this it couple will be the best dressed duo at any party.

8. Lauren & Andrés Santo Domingo
If you're wondering who actually wears couture, look no further than Moda Operandi founder and socialite L.S.D., whose Vogue articles and Instagram snaps are guaranteed to give anyone a serious dose of closet envy. And while she's a style showstopper on her own, when she steps out with her husband, they're a match made in sartorial heaven. Every ball gown needs a perfect tuxedo to match it, right?

7. Chelsea Fairless & Lea DeLaria
When fashion is your life (Fairless is a fashion editor, DeLaria is an actress), your style choices have to be on-point. These two are a prime example of how opposite looks can mesh so perfectly together. The former loves a good maxi-dress or oversized frock, while the latter knows how to take any menswear-inspired look and make it her own. The juxtaposition makes them a killer red-carpet couple — they always have us waiting to see what they'll come up with next.

6. Jay Z & Beyoncé
You know those couples that just look and seem so perfect you're convinced they might not even be real? Well, when you're basically the king and queen of the world, it's hard to imagine that Jay Z and Beyoncé don't have it all. Both are always dressed to the nines, treating every single moment like the world's biggest photo op (Who hasn't seen her perfectly styled looks while doing something as simple as grabbing lunch?), making them the hottest couple on the New York City block (or, in Los Angeles, too). As Queen Bey herself would say, "Bow down, bitches."

5. Courtney Crangi & Jenna Lyons
If there's anyone we'd say has nailed a signature look, it's Jenna Lyons: The J.Crew creative director has a long list of sartorial savvy-ness, whether it's wearing wild, printed suits or sequins with sweats, and always accessorizing with thick-framed glasses and a bold red lip. The thing about dating someone who always looks so damn good is that it can be hard to keep up. But Lyons' partner, Courtney Crangi, holds her own in the most laid-back, downtown cool way with a slew of flowing blouses, tailored trousers, and fitted blazers.

4. Simon Doonan & Jonathan Adler
We're all for a power couple who loves bold colors and prints, and who could be more pattern-obsessed than home designer Jonathan Adler and his spouse, creative ambassador-at-large for Barneys, Simon Doonan? The duo has sported some of the quirkiest looks in the book, from floral button-downs and geometric blazers to brocade jackets and playful ties — you may say it's a bit too much, but we say it's just right.

3. La La & Carmelo Anthony
Before athletes were flooding fashion events and front rows, Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony and his former-MTV VJ wife La La were the best-dressed sports couple on the block. They're OG Fashion Week staples and have seriously led the pack when it comes to off-the-court style: 'Melo isn't afraid to break any style rules (think printed dress shirts, fitted blazers, tons of pricey athleisure, and a staggering hat collection), and La La has, like her BFF Kim Kardashian, ditched her signature body-con dresses and sky-high heels for cool matching sets. Really though, is there anything better than a couple in coordinating Opening Ceremony? Didn't think so.

2. Olivia Palermo & Johannes Huebl
What do you get when two of the best-looking and best-dressed people in the world get married? Pretty much the most gorgeous couple, ever. Aside from the fact that both Palermo and Huebl are so damn attractive, the couple knows a thing (or two, or 20) about style; they're a front row fixture at Fashion Week, have gotten steamy in an array of photo shoots, and have the ability to transform even the most daunting of tasks into an excuse for a serious sartorial moment. #TheyWokeUpLikeThis.

1. Jenny Shimizu & Michelle Harper
Let's preface this by saying the model and brand consultant have totally different aesthetics when it comes to personal style; Shimizu leans more towards androgynous looks while Harper is the ultimate street-style peacock, parading down the sidewalk in couture. But opposites attract, right? And that's exactly why we love — and admire — them. They're the perfect fashion dichotomy, a duo who complements and collaborates to make the ultimate (and seriously chic) love story.
