Zadie Smith and Nick Laird Make a Dashing Duo at Natural History Gala

Is it possible to be casually glamorous? Because that's exactly what these two are.

Plenty of well-turned-out couples were in attendance at last night’s American Museum of Natural History Gala, but British writers Zadie Smith and Nick Laird stick out as the night’s best-dressed couple.

Ms. Smith’s signature turban’s apricot hue perfectly coordinates with her gold accessories, without being too matchy, while Mr. Laird looks distinguished in his tailored tux.

This photo of a glamorous and put-together literary couple is perfect to whip out next time someone repeats the old cliché that writers are schlubs.
