Greatest celebrity love stories

From the royals to the rebels, the social media marriages to the musical moguls, we've whittled down the greatest celebrity love stories of all time.

Hedonia Lottie Dress, £70, Joy Everley Pearl Studs, £49, The Paula Bolton Collection White Pearl Necklace and Bracelet Set, £48.

WHO John and Jackie Kennedy WHY Whilst they may have not been the most faithful of husbands and wives, the Kennedys were idolised and for many symbolised the American Dream. They became the most cherished President and First Lady the world had ever seen, until his tragic assassination in 1963. With great responsibility came some great fashion choices too; him in his signature suit and her a champion of the LBD, classic twin sets and full, feminine dresses.

WHO Victoria and David Beckham WHY Ever since Posh and Becks walked out in matching Versace leathers back in 1999, they've been the nation's favourite it couple.

She pouts, he puts his foot in it, and we still love them just as much as they seem to genuinely love each other.

WHO Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie WHY She's had her fair share of men (and fashioned the first one's blood into a necklace!) and he allegedly did the dirt on sweet Jennifer Aniston with Ange during the filming of Mr & Mrs Smith. Now the Hollywood couple have settled down but even that isn't conventional what with their flesh-flashing red carpet moments (that's mainly Angelina, sadly) and their brood of six children still questioning when Mum and Dad will tie the knot. WEAR Get the femme fatale look a la Angelina Jolie in Elliot Claire's classic bustier style black ball gown, £255, and vampy black high heels.

Spanning over two decades, they were married for 12 years from 1964 to 1976, with two divorces in between! WEAR Slip into a curve-enhancing prom style dress and look-at-me jewellery to channel the lady who won many a heart in the swinging 70s.

WHO Michelle and Barack Obama WHY Whilst Sam Cam slips into another navy shift dress to stand next to David, across the pond Michelle Obama always dresses to impress in something bright, bold and seriously chic. Never ones to shy away from a PDA (that's a personal display of affection), this is one presidential couple who seem incredibly solid and so in love (sigh!). Our all time favourite look had to be the one above for Barack's second inauguration. WEAR If you can't afford a custom made Jason Wu like Michelle, then feast your eyes on this gorgeous ball gown by Elliot Claire, £255, complete with accessories worthy of the White House. THE POWER COUPLE BlingDeenie Black Split Maxi Dress, £72, Zoe & Morgan Gold Cobra Earrings, £217, Byrogue Stud Knuckle Ring in Gold, £145. WHO Beyonce and Jay Z WHY Both incredibly successful in their own right, they've been together since 2008 (a lifetime in celeb land) and have worked closely together in the music industry throughout their lengthy relationship without any hiccups. Last year the diva and her leading man welcomed baby Blue Ivy to the family and the chart-topping duo are stronger than ever with Beyonce about to embark on her next tour, Mrs Carter, in homage to her hubbie.

WHO Dawn O'Porter and Chris O'Dowd WHY One of the most famous couples on Twitter, TV presenter Dawn and actor Chris don't take themselves too seriously, support each other fervently and they've both got wardrobes fit to bursting with some sensational sixties style stuff. When it came to their own wedding day, or 'Wed Fest' as the couple dubbed it, they ditched the white dress and stuffy ceremony for a long weekend of drinking, partying and wearing onesies. Soon after Chris tweeted a picture of his new Mrs in her honeymoon lingerie and instead of taking Chris' name Dawn Porter became Dawn O'Porter. That's love in the modern age for you. WEAR Want to bag a man like Mr O'Dowd? Make like Dawn and invest in some retro shift styles and sassy accessories. We love this monochrome number with PU pockets by Scarlett Black, £165.
