We're only half way through the year and Spy has already covered more than 100 events in 2016. So we decided to look back over the months and celebrate our favourite red carpet couples.
Note: Some are not actual couples but look so pretty together, we couldn't resist.
Antonia Prebble and Gareth Williams
At the Tickled premiere at the Civic, Westside actress Antonia Prebble and fellow actor and longtime boyfriend Gareth Williams cut a stylish figure. Prebble’s red jersey dress is sexy and sophisticated while her black patent accessories juxtapose nicely against the tan leather worn by her man.
Adam Thomson and Jessie Gurunathan
At the Stonyridge Larose party, International rugby player Adam Thomson managed to give us his best angle, even though he had suffered a gash to the head on the field the previous week. Thomson looks like he has picked up some nice threads in his travels and his girlfriend, former reality TV star Jessie Gurunathan looks as elegant as ever in black, with nude studded Valentino shoes.
Michael Guerin and Amanda Schlegel
At the Lamborghini party at the Birdcage, sports and racing guy about town Michael Guerin looked handsomely casual in a camel cashmere coat with scarf, while his bride-to-be Amanda Schlegel looked beautiful and snug in a three-quarter length white cashmere coat.
Kieran and Bridget Read
At BMW Derby Day at Ellerslie, only the captain of the All Blacks and his wife can pull off all black with style. Kieran and Bridget looked sartorially elegant as they mixed and mingled as the new leading couple of the nation’s leading sport’s team.
Yvonne Bennetti and Damian Chesterman
At the recent Trelise Cooper Theatre of Fashion show, fellow fashion designer Yvonne Bennetti looked fiercely fabulous in tassled leather, with her partner Damian Chesterman in a three piece suit, which added to the modern power couple look.
Jaime Ridge and Josh Bloxham
The Denizen Heroes’ party at St Matthew-in-the-City featured one of the best rooms of the year. Jaime Ridge was the belle of the black tie affair in a custom-made white Grace Millicent gown. Boyfriend professional basketballer Josh Bloxham, scrubbed up admirably in a double breasted tux.
Jerome and Di Kaino
All Black Jerome Kaino cut a dashing figure wearing Working Style at the Working Style catwalk show at St Matthew-in-the-City. His wife Di was the perfect match in a forest green, silk wrap dress.
Alex Tarrant and Luci Hare
These two exuded joy at the launch of Filthy Rich at Mantells on the Water. Filthy Rich actor Alex Tarrant was proud as punch of his girlfriend Auckward Love star Luci Hare, who wore a fierce looking Sass and Bide dress and studded cape.
Erin Simpson and Ben Boyle
At the Eddie the Eagle premiere, TV presenter Erin Simpson looks simple and chic in a black chiffon dress, the pattern of which tones in nicely with her boyfriend, sports agent, Ben Boyle’s coat.
Colin Mathura-Jeffree and Chrystal Chenery
Also at the premiere of Eddie the Eagle was Colin Mathura-Jeffree and former Bachelorette, Chrystal Chenery. Colin was looking dapper in combination of polka dots, bow tie and cuffed jeans. Chrystal kept it casual in a striped T and blue jeans. Both posed up a storm, with a throwback move from their time on Dancing with the Stars.
Max Key and Dylan Thomas
Max Key began his media blitz, before the release of his Remix shoot and his new single Paradise, with a social appearance with his best mate Dylan Thomas at the recent Joseph Parker Fight Night. The boys keep it simple in single breasted suits and Key was barely a week into his new peroxide look with no regrowth or bandana needed.
Elizabeth Marvelly and Tame Iti
Another great pose at the Taite Music Prize, where songstress Elizabeth Marvelly helped her leopard print camisole purr, pairing it with a black tuxedo jacket and smiling alongside artist and activist Tame Iti.
