Meet The Toledos: The World's Coolest Couple, Ever

Call off the dogs. We've officially met the world's coolest couple—seriously. So, who are they, you ask? Meet Isabel and Ruben Toledo, partners in love and business. She made fashion history with Michelle Obama's stunning inauguration gown and his colorful art can be found anywhere from the Nordstrom catalog to ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton. But despite all of those big moves, Ruben's favorite project is sketching the latest designs from his numero uno lady, obviously.
In town for a lecture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the dynamic duo spent the morning with us and chatted all things style, art, and well, Toledo. From finishing each other's sentences to messing around with hats in the Fashion Resource Center, the pair makes it clear that the honeymoon stage is far from over for them. They even share some of the same clothing—like a pair of Ruben's hardware-store painting pants. Read on for the ultimate love story, filled with a whole lotta happiness—and no ending in sight.
