When Robert Pattinson and Candice Swanepole first announced their engagement, we were completely floored. Not only was it the year’s biggest celebrity news story, but we were also treated to a front-row seat at the wedding of one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors and one of its most adorable and romantic young couples.
The wedding cake alone made for one of our favorite Instagram posts of all time. And let’s not forget about the gorgeous dress worn by the bride, which made an appearance in the film Room. Not to mention that fact that both weddings were completely private and only invited guests and family members were able to attend.
But, as much as we enjoyed seeing these two truly happy together, we had to wonder: who is the better looking of the couple? We compared their looks side by side and came up with a score based on our findings. Let’s take a look.
At 6’2″ and 20 years old, Robert Pattinson is the older brother of English actor and musician Chris Pattinson. So, not only is he an accomplished and well-bred man, but his good looks must have been passed on to him by his famous father, David. Thanks to his mother’s side of the family, he is also connected to the famous fashion designer Victoria Beckham.
While we applaud Robert Pattinson for looking so dashing as a bride’s bachelor, we have to say that his gorgeousness pales in comparison to that of his talented and popular fiancée, Candice Swanepole. Born in England, Candice was raised in New York and Los Angeles. She started her career as a fashion model at the age of 15 and today is considered one of Hollywood’s most promising up-and-coming stars. With her bubbly charm and playful manner, along with her statuesque figure, Candice is a woman whose good looks will never go out of style.
It’s been said that when it comes to good looks, opposites attract, and that couldn’t be more true when comparing these two beauties. While Robert Pattinson is considered a good-looking man, with his chiseled jawline, piercing blue eyes, and classic features, Candice Swanepole is breathtakingly beautiful. Even when she wasn’t working, Candice enjoyed taking care of her appearance, and continued to do so even now that she’s pursuing a career in acting. As the actress puts it,”I don’t ever feel that my looks cross the line between being classy and being vulgar. I like to dress in a way that makes me feel comfortable and happy, and I think that’s what makes me attractive.”
Perhaps one of the reasons behind Robert Pattinson’s enduring good looks is his ability to exude a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that his fans find so appealing. In the beginning of their romance, Robert Pattinson and Candice Swanepole were often described as a ‘couple of misfits’, and indeed it seems that they had more in common than just their good looks. While Robert Pattinson is a well-bred man, raised in a house full of women, and Candice Swanepole is the classic free-spirited woman, who enjoys dressing up in costumes and getting into character, their shared sense of humor and irreverence for authority is what ultimately drew them together.
In a 2012 interview with Glamour magazine, Candice Swanepole described their attraction to one another as “instantaneous” and “mutual”, adding that they share a “mischievous streak” and have a “desire to annoy”. And just a few years later, in an interview with PAPER magazine, Robert Pattinson echoed those sentiments, commenting, “We have this really awesome mutual respect for each other. We’re always having a laugh over things that one of us thinks is funny. There are no bad language or mean things. We just have a good time with each other.”
If you’re familiar with the writing of English author Roald Dahl, you’ll know that he had a wonderful way with words, and it seems that he had a hand in writing the fairy tale that these two boys would later marry one another. In the story, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sweet, which was later turned into a movie with the same name, Dahl wrote:
“There was once a girl named Elsie Peddler who married a prince named Henry Sweet. When he asked her to sign a disclaimer before the wedding contract was executed, she wrote: ‘I, Elsie Peddler, do solemnly swear that I will never eat sweets in any form, especially those made with chocolate or those delicious pastries with cream inside.’ The prince was so grateful that he made her a princess and gave them both a home full of toys.”
We can definitely see why these two would want to keep the gifts that their parents and friends have given them over the years. The diamond engagement ring that Robert Pattinson gave Candice Swanepole is one of the most valuable and largest diamonds in the world. Similarly, the £850,000 ($1.2 million) that Candice spent on purchasing the ‘perfect dress’ for her big day is something to behold.
These two are definitely an adorable couple, and we hope to see more of them as they embark on their life together, whether they’re walking down the aisles of a grocery store or holding hands as they walk down the street. We’ve ranked the various looks of Robert Pattinson and Candice Swanepole side by side, from most to least attractive, and although he may not possess the physical beauty that his fiancée does, it’s clear that Robert Pattinson is the more attractive one. The best-looking pair by far are Robert Pattinson and Victoria Beckham. Here’s a look at how we did the ranking.
Ranking The Looks
Out of all the celebrities spotted in the 2019 wedding season, these two were perhaps the most adorable and romantic. While we’re always partial to a good old-fashioned celebrity wedding, it’s rare that we get to see two such beautiful and promising young couples tying the knot so soon after dating for so long. It seems that luck was on our side, as the celebrity couple we’re ranking today are a testament to modern love and its endless possibilities.
We started by ranking the looks from most to least attractive. For this ranking, we considered a number of factors, from physical appearance to personality. We wanted to find the best combination of qualities that would make for a beautiful and healthy offspring.
Overall, we ranked Victoria Beckham and her partner, the tennis player and entrepreneur Mathew McLean, as the most attractive couple. The English fashion designer Victoria Beckham is arguably one of the most influential women in the world of fashion and style. Not only is she the creator of the fashion house Victoria Beckham, but she is also responsible for designing countless celebrities’ outfits, including that of the bride on our list. Besides sharing a good pair of genes with her famous father, David Beckham, Victoria has also inherited his athletic prowess, which she enjoys flaunting at official matches and events, as well as casual occasions such as yoga class and Pilates with friends. And let’s not forget about the designer’s signature sneakers and handbags, which have become famous in their own right.
Top 5 Most Attractive Celebrity Couples
1. Victoria Beckham and Mathew McLean — 7.5/10
2. Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber — 7/10
3. Hailey Stewart and Morgan Stewart — 6.5/10
4. Kate Middleton and Prince William — 6.5/10
5. Naomi Campbell and Guy Ritchie — 6/10
As we mentioned, the birth of Robert Pattinson’s and Candice Swanepole’s baby daughter should grace us with an endless supply of gorgeous pictures, given the couple’s affinity for posing for the camera. What better way to celebrate the arrival of a new baby than by posing for a family photo? We can already see that girl’s debut as a toddler in a beautiful dress having a blast in the playground.
While there are many beautiful celebrity couples out there, this year’s wedding season was particularly stunning, with countless famous faces tying the knot. Out of all the celebrity weddings this year, these two were undoubtedly one of the most stylish and romantic. Even now, six months after getting hitched, the image of the bride in her beautiful wedding dress still makes us smile. The best-looking celebrity wedding this year was without a doubt that of the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore a stunning white dress by the designer Clare Waight Keller.
