Couple Up: Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas

image

How psyched was Disney about these two holding hands, do you think? But when they broke up—well, Miley says that’s what sparked her teenage rebellion (which led straight into her early 20s rebellion, obvs). Get into their adolescent power couple look below—and here, too. —erica

Miley Cyrus: A beaded Shashi bracelet, a striped tee from NSF, and washed-out Siwy cut-offs.

Nick Jonas: A blue Brooklyn Tailors suit, a Stock Manufacturing Co. oxford, and a tie by John Varvatos.

Get all the “Couple Up” you can handle.

Of a Kind

Lately, I’ve been really feeling the idea of a blue suit—not navy or royal, exactly, but something between. Basically exactly what Shades of Grey is doing here. —erica

Couple Up: Tom Green and Drew Barrymore

image

These two were supposed to get married on Saturday Night Live—mmmhmm, really. Apparently, Drew got cold feet, married Tom anyway in July 2001, and then filed for divorce 163 days later. It was all very confusing, even for those of us not intimately involved. —erica

Tom Green: A classic Neil Barrett bow tie, a Brooklyn Tailors tux, and Duncan Quinn lace-ups.

Drew Barrymore: A shiny Lauren Merkin clutch, a green-and-blue Anna Sui kimono, and teardrop earrings from Alexis Bittar.

If you’re looking for more duos you nearly forgot existed, we have a whole bunch.

On-again, off-again for nearly all of the seventies and eighties—so much dramz with these two. And so much good style. Can we get a primetime cable-TV movie about them? Please? —erica

Jack Nicholson: A Rag & Bone knit tie, a cotton-and-linen Billy Reid blazer, and Raen sunglasses.

Anjelica Huston: An easy-breezy Cook & Gates tote, a button-front Shaina Mote dress, and a simple K/LLER necklace.

Next Level: Shocking Pink

image

Think pink! No, like, REALLY pink. Here are four ways to do bubblegum with a bang. —erica

LEVEL I: Oooh, so polished with a pair of jeans, Amanda Uprichard!

LEVEL II: Antiqued brass keeps the bright-as-they-come stones in these Dannijo studs from looking too Barbie. 

LEVEL III: What do you call this Jenni Kayne dress besides perfect, really?

LEVEL IV: 3.1 Phillip Lim delivers the most serious, double-breasted cut in the most fun-lovin’, look-at-me hue.

Want four more? Have at it.

Couple Up: Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Katy Perry: An armor ring from Eddie Borgo, a gunmetal sequin dress by Milly, and cheeky-as-they-come Charlotte Olympia pumps.

The best kind of suit is the one for women who really don’t have to wear a suit, it you ask me. Take this Suzanne Rae one, for instance. —erica

Couple Up: Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley

image

These two? So much dramz. There’s the prostitute thing, obviously—and then there’s the fact that he’s her son’s godfather. But nevermind all that. It’s straight-up impossible to see a picture of Liz and Hugh together and not get nostalgic. —erica

Hugh Grant: A crisp Duncan Quinn shirt, a pinstripe Comme des Garçons suit, and Sanders & Sanders lace-ups.

Elizabeth Hurley: A silky Alice + Olivia slip dress, a beaded bag from Khirma Eliazov, and serious gold Charlotte Olympia sandals.

More couples of yesteryear are hanging around here.

Couple Up: Lyle Lovett and Julia Roberts

image

Of Julia Roberts’s wedding to Lyle Lovett in 1993, People mag said—in a story titled “Lovett First Sight,” mind you—”It was the biggest thing to happen in Marion. Ind., since the high school basketball team won back-to-back state championships in the mid-’70s.” Well, the marriage only lasted 21 months, but their couple’s style survives. —erica

Lyle Lovett: A gingham tie from Alexander Olch, a Seize Sur Vingt suit that feels right for a long, tall Texan, and Nocona cowboy boots.

Julia Roberts: A double-breasted Societe Anonyme blazer, a pleated mini skirt by Christopher Kane, and black Jeffrey Campbell wedges.

More of this! Here!

Marriage Material: See Just How Erica’s Wedding Went Down

Major 2013 milestones? A big one for me was getting married to the straight-up wonderful dude who would probably rather not be pictured here. It was a low-key affair—is it weird to use the word affair when talking about weddings?—at Manhattan’s City Hall (technically the City Clerk’s Office, but you know) with just our fams…and some goodness from a few up-and-coming designers, obvi. Here’s how we made it official. —erica

image

The amazing Kaelen made my dress! It’s WHITE LEATHER. (Thought that warranted use of the caps lock key.) It’s the same cut as this one from her fall 2013 collection, and it fits like a GD glove. (The shoes are coming later—don’t worry.)

image

Custom suit, what, what. The savvy crew at Brooklyn Tailors whipped this sucker up for Thomas—it’s charcoal and super-timeless and has bells and whistles like hand pick-stitching that suit freaks die over. That *adorable* polka-dot bow tie? His grandfather’s.

image

Our rings were masterminded by the lovely Blanca Monros Gomez.They’re rose gold, a metal that—as the designer taught me back when—looks good with pretty much any skin tone. My engagement ring has black diamonds (cause I like ‘em), and my wedding band has sapphires (cause they’re Thomas’s birthstone). 

image

Ok, so the accessories: I wore a Lulu Frost bracelet (something borrowed!) that felt appropriately retro-cool for the venue and Alexandre Birman shoes (something very blue!) along with Thomas’s great-grandmother’s wedding ring and earrings that were my grandma’s (somethings old). And I carried a blush Clare Vivier fold-over clutch that’s been my go-to for weddings, mine or not—so, something new-ish?

image

After we got our paws on that marriage certificate (and had our pictures taken by our Ann Street Studio pals), we walked over to the awesome, festive Blaue Gans for lunch—Claire sent flowers by Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm for the tables!—and then booked ourselves a sweet room at the Bowery Hotel for the night.

image

Next up: a big ol’ party at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago to celebrate. The unreasonably talented Lisa Hedge of Venamour made our invites. I sweat them so much that I wanna get one framed.

Looking for more wedding madness? Ok, then.
