Iconic couples of the past we will miss this year on the Oscar red carpet

Reminiscing iconic Oscar couples who graced the red carpet in love and vogue but they aren't going to do it again.

Many a red carpet romances have beamed the most during the Oscars. While we gear for the 90th Annual Academy Awards to be held at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on March 4, we woefully look back at some of the most remarkable couples who will not be seen hitting the red carpet together anymore, sigh! 

They may have moved on but their iconic turn up together will always be remembered on the Oscar red carpet and also on the internet. Here are their iconic look and the reason why we'll miss them, incredibly!

One thing Brangelina knew better than any other celebrity couple was how to work the red carpet. Labeled to be the king and queen of The Carpet, they coordinated their looks and who can ever in their right mind forget the 84th Oscars where Angelina Jolie executed her skinny right leg in a black strapless Atelier Versace that went viral on the internet. 

There are many reasons why we'll miss this A-list power couple on the red carpet but mostly because ever since their first appearance together in co-ordinated leather at the 2005 premiere of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith', they have given us the couple looks to remember and aim for. In short, it had always been #couplegoals before their divorce turned ugly and they went on separate ways, never to be spotted in the red carpet again. Their last appearance as a couple on the red carpet was in 2015, a decade after their first debut, at opening night gala premiere for 'By the Sea'. It's 2018 now and the red carpet is going to miss its once glorious king and queen.

Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts

Remember the "aww" red carpet Oscar moment when it was discovered that Liev Schreiber picked his then-wife Naomi Watts' Oscar dress? Good taste makes for an eye-pleasing couple so when the couple arrived arm-in-arm for Hollywood's biggest date night on the 88th Annual Academy Awards, they dazzled jointly and Naomi Watts rocked the embellished strapless navy gown by Armani Prive that her Oscar-winning husband, so keenly selected. The X-Men actor was recently spotted with his younger girlfriend, a former beauty queen, who fan's say look a lot like his ex-wife. So we are not sure if there will be a red carpet De-Ja-Vu but we know for sure that it will not be the same. 

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

The duo hit the red carpet together for the first time in 2003 at the Los Angeles premiere of their movie, Daredevil. Ever since, till 2013, they graced each other company for the red carpet walk. When they announced their split, Hollywood knew there would be no more matching baseball caps looks and most important of all, the much appreciated red carpet coordination. At the 2013 Oscars, Affleck won Best Picture for his film Argo, and during his acceptance speech, shouted out his marriage to Garner. "I want to thank my wife who I don't usually associate with Iran," he said. "I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work." We aren't getting these moments again.
