With Valentine’s Day approaching, we’ve been reflecting on our favorite fashion couples. Because when it comes to dressing, a pair of style aces is always better than one. Naturally, power duos like Brangelina or Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom made the cut; those genetic jackpot winners could make even burlap sacks look good. Still, you won’t find most of our matchups in the pages of Us Weekly. Model sweethearts Sheila Marquez and Christian Brylle look like they share a single closet. And we love Leelee Sobieski in a suit of her husband Adam Kimmel’s design. But André Saraiva and Annabelle Dexter-Jones take our top honors for their coordinating varsity jackets and jeans.

Last night at the Sunshine Landmark Theatre, at the debut of his new Mark Ruffalo-directed film, Sympathy for Delicious, Orlando Bloom revealed a hidden talent: singing.
Bloom stars in the rock-music-meets-faith-healing (yes, really) flick as The Stain, a self-absorbed, Russell Brand-esque rocker. And though the English actor takes to the stage throughout, he never actually had to test out his vocal chops to get the part. Luckily, it turned out they’d been there all along. Bloom impressed his cast mates, Laura Linney, Juliette Lewis, Christopher Thornton, and Ruffalo—not to mention himself—when it came time to record the live concerts. “Singing was a happy surprise—that was a big one, especially since my character does a lot of it in the movie,” he said. Before now, his performances were mostly of the private variety. “I sing in the shower all the time,” he admitted. “My wife thinks I am pretty good.”
Mrs. Bloom—a.k.a. Miranda Kerr—was on hand at the DeLeón-fueled after-party at the Mondrian Soho to confirm. “He has got an incredible voice and I’m really proud of what he did with the role; it was something different for him,” Kerr told Style.com. As for her preferred role at the moment? New mom. “I just started back working a little bit, but not too much because my priority is being a mother—it’s a magical experience.”
While Alexander Wang has done just fine, thank you, without advertising up to this point, he’s entering the arena next month with his first-ever billboard and, in March, his first-ever print campaign. The ad—Wang prefers to call it an “image piece”—was shot by Craig McDean and stars up-and-comer Aymeline Valade. Look for it on the corner of Lafayette and Great Jones and in the March issue of Interview. [WWD]
The first pic of Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s 13-day-old progeny is out. If little Flynn is ready for his close-up, does that mean his Victoria’s Secret mom will snap back to her top shape in time for the Fall runways? Here’s hoping. [Us]
Lady Gaga’s stylist extraordinaire, Nicola Formichetti, will unveil his first men’s collection for Thierry Mugler in Paris today. Gaga, naturally, will provide the soundtrack. Here’s hoping she’ll be on board (and in the front row) at the women’s show come February. [WWD]
No sooner has one gorgeous child been born—that’d be the new baby son of Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom—than another’s on the way. David Beckham took to Facebook this weekend to announce that he and Victoria are expecting their fourth child. [Vogue U.K.]
Words we thought we’d never have occasion to write: Hedi Slimane photographs Robert De Niro and produces some of the best portraits of the actor we’ve seen in years. [Hedi Slimane]
