Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have long been the subject of divorce rumors, but the married couple of seven years looked very much in love as they shared a bit of PDA in New York City on Thursday.

The couple held hands--and even dressed quite similarly--in celebration of Ellen DeGeneres's new clothing line, ED. Now prominently featured at Bergdorf Goodman, Ellen and Portia wore pieces from the line to laud yet another of Ellen's successes. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian showed up for the launch, lending their support to Ellen DeGeneres.

The talk show host wore a tuxedo-type ensemble, featuring a crisp white button down shirt with slim black pants and a fitted jacket. Portia de Rossi wore a similar style in her pants and jacket. She paired hers with a ruffled blouse and sexy high heels.

Earlier in the day, Ellen DeGeneres and the Scandal actress were spotted hand-in-hand, strolling through NYC. While not dressed in haute couture, the couple was still dressed alike. Ellen DeGeneres wore a blue plaid button-down shirt, with Portia de Rossi wearing a similar one in red.

It's wonderful to see Ellen and Portia together and happy. Rumors of a rocky marriage plagued the couple for months. On Thursday, however, they appeared comfortable and very much in love.

"We're kind of flattered [by the breakup rumors], because for a while no one cared about us, and we thought 'Oh, lesbians aren't worthy of tabloid stories!'" Ellen DeGeneres joked while she was a guest on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show this past week. "We're kind of flattered that they even care about us."

Congratulations to Ellen DeGeneres on the launch of her new Bergdorf Goodman clothing line--and on taking all those rumors about a rocky relationship in stride.
