Obviously, we have no idea what these two are like in their private lives, but they always give off this faint sense of oddity when they're in public. She's always way less vivacious when she's with him and they both always look uneasy, as if they're afraid the longer they stay in front of photographers the likelier it becomes that something catastrophic will happen. Is that just us? Or do any of the minion think they're, well, kind of an odd couple? Just look at them. She looks like a mother trying to calm a nervous child. He looks, in turn, like a nervous child. This is how they always seem to look when they're together.

Oh well, consider that your Monday morning topic. Now let's get to the clothes.

SHE: Looking good. She took an eye-catching dress, hemmed the skirt, and paired it with an equally eye-catching coat and KILLA shoes. It's a perfect urban, springtime, honey-let's-go-to-a-Broadway-premiere kind of dress. We even like her hair, for once. She needs to keep it that soft all the time (although she really should take more than a couple inches off it). 9/10

HE: We admit, it's a little hard to look past the stiff posing and goofy facial expressions, but he looks as he pretty much always looks when he gets dressed up: awkward. The jacket doesn't appear to fit him very well and that bow tie sends him rocketing past middle age and well into his seventies. Pants hem looks okay; not great, but okay. Even though we think he looks, well, kind of bad here, we can't really point to many elements as wrong. It's more about how he's wearing his clothes than what he's wearing. Still, he scores unexpectedly high based mostly on the technical details. 7/10

Combined score: 8/10, which is probably a little high, all things considered. Like we said, there's little to criticize here. Except his goofy faces.
