Celebrities With Matching Outfits: 10 Fashion Faux Pas

We all know those couples who are so inseparable that sometimes they seem to be almost the same person. They spend every waking (and sometimes sleeping) hour together, they finish each other’s sentences, and occasionally…they even start dressing the same. Celebrities aren’t immune to love crazy obsession, whether it be with their partner or with their friends. Check out some outfits that are a bit too matchy-matchy, but entertainingly funny.

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake

The chambray shirt trend has definitely made denim fashionable in many styles, but I think Britney and JT took it way too far. A denim hat and purse? Maybe it’s for they better this couple didn’t stay together.

Victoria and David Beckham

Wait, is this the same British fashion icon, Posh Spice? How did she miss this huge fashion faux pas? Alone, the leather-on-leather look might not have been horrible for the 90’s, but it becomes a lot with two of them decked head to toe in leather. Luckily, they’re both still drop dead gorgeous.

Prince William and Kate Middleton

I love the royal family just as much as the next person and I would do anything to raid Kate’s closet. But matching purple sweaters with white collars? Unless I’m missing some European fashion trend, they should have probably checked on the other’s outfit before out.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Baby, Baby, Baby….no!! This couple gets a slight redemption because at least the color of their shirts are different, but that still doesn’t take away from the fact that they are wearing the same shirt…and it looks like the same size too! Maybe Selena needed an extra shirt so she borrowed one of Justin’s. Or…did he borrow one of her shirts?

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

This relationship was every Twihard’s dream, but hopefully their fans didn’t take this fashion cue of matching outerwear. Good think Kristen is a lot smaller that Robert or they might have just mixed up their jackets!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Their age difference doesn’t stop their love, or the ability to dress the same. I can understand coordinating outfits for a special occasion, but this goes to the extreme (not to mention the shades of brown really clash). This certainly show that they definitely belong together.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

There are a few things I have to say about this. One, individually this pair looks steallar! But two, this is another example of poor communication. And three, what is that thing on Brad’s face?

Backstreet Boys

When performers have matching outfits it’s completely understandable and acceptable. But…this? I don’t really need to say more. It certainly makes me miss the boy band era, but who knows what their manager was thinking?


JT makes his second appearance on the list, but this time with his guys. Please note the facial expressions, the awkward hand gestures, and five too many oversized vests with oversized pockets.

Destiny’s Child

From the looks of this, not only were these ladies the queens of the music industry, but they were also queens of the jungle. With this outfit combo, they would definitely win a game of hide and seek in the forest.
