Marilyn & Dita: Mourning The Loss of Fashion's Fiercest Couple

01/05/2007 at 02:34 PM ET

When the end of Dita Von Teese & Marilyn Manson’s marriage was confirmed today, those of us obsessed with fashion sobbed, “oh no!” Irreconcilable differences aside, no couple has worked the red carpet with more flair than these two the past few years. Always decked out in perfectly coordinated couture attire — just look them here in Technicolor glory at a Marc Jacobs’ store opening in Los Angeles! — they made Ashton and Demi seem like frumps in comparison. Something about her 1940’s Marlene Dietrich-glamour complimented his dandy Goth getups just perfectly. (On their wedding day, Dita wore a purple Vivienne Westwood gown, while Manson opted for a John Galliano frock coat). How many couples wear matching red lipstick? But, alas, style is not everything and fashion cannot replace happiness. We can’t help but wonder who will take over their extreme fashion throne. Perhaps Christina Aguilera and hubbie Jordan Bratman?

I think Christina and Jordan dress VERY well, but not really “extreme” all the time. I’d say (as much as I dislike them) Posh and David are extreme. That sweater he wore and that craziness she wears every day of her life? That’s extreme – not so much in a good way, though. :)

I’m happy Marilyn is free again. Yummers!

I love the way Posh & Beckham dress, they are my favorite fashionable couple! Dita & Marilyn..sniff sniff…who would have thought?! They are to the extreme with everything! Jordan & Christina dress good as well.

i loved Dita Von Teese & Marilyn Manson, its a shame they were awesome together, and i myself being a manson fan am extremely disappointed, but i guess it just wasnt meant to be… :(

she’s SO cool looking… anyway, i think jada and will always look very good on the red carpet together, as do michael and catherine. i think coordinating attire is a must for couples at big events!!

These two are just plain WEIRD!

Can you just imagine what his hair must look like when he wakes up in the AM? He might be a really nice guy but he is just too weird for me. I think Will and Jada Smith always look wonderful together!


Dita Von Teese is SO gorgeous.
I remember when their wedding photos were in Vogue, she looked absolutly stunning. I love her style, and she and Marilyn looked great together. There’s more to it than that though, and I hope they both find happiness wherever it may be.

ahh. they look so strange.

They both look like the “walking dead” to me :( There’s no fashion in looking like that.

Another Hollywood marriage down the tubes, heck divorce is so much easier than actually trying to make a marriage work. Thank goodness there were no kids involved.

Now Christina & Jordan, that is a marriage I could see lasting, she seems like a smart girl who was cautious with giving her heart away and saved marriage for someone special. I also think since meeting Jordan, Christina has toned down her attire and appears to be carrying herself as a lady with great self respect…just my opinion, though.
