Vintage Valentines: Super(model) Couples from the Past

In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to take a look back at some of the most famous couples in fashion history. Each couple below has one thing in common, that being supermodels. Despite the unfortunate outcome of each relationship, these couples are just too cool to forget. 

Kate Moss and Johnny Depp

I am not really a big Johnny Depp fan but I do love he and Kate Moss as a couple. Both of their careers were skyrocketing in the 90s, making them the ultimate super(model) couple. While the relationship did not last, a never-ending gallery of the couple caught in chic poses and clothing will fill Pinterest boards forever. 

Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere

Talk about an All-American couple! Women were swooning for Richard Gere post-Pretty Woman so one can imagine that he could have dated just about anyone in those days. In 1991 Gere married supermodel Cindy Crawford, who was 25 at the time. Crawford's face, mole, and curves made her one of the sexiest supermodels of that era. Their marriage lasted four years, not too shabby by Hollywood standards.

Naomi Campbell and Mike Tyson

This relationship was doomed from the start. We all know that Mike Tyson has quite the temper, and Naomi is not much different. The did not last as a couple but starred in an amazing Vogue editorial, one where Naomi laid topless on top of Tyson in the middle of the Atlantic City boardwalk. These images remain the favorite of Vogue's Executive Fashion Editor, Phyllis Posnick. 

Claudia Schiffer and David Copperfield

A model and a magician, to me this is the ultimate in cool couples. Schiffer and Copperfield were engaged for five years, but eventually their relationship was cut in half (haha!) when Copperfield's work got in the way of things. While they were dating, Schiffer would appear in shows, the ultimate magician's assistant in my opinion. 

Helena Christensen and Norman Reedus

Nowadays Norman Reedus is battling zombies on AMC's hit The Walking Dead, but in the 90s he was dating mega-babe Helena Christensen. Reedus was once a model himself so it was simply fate that the two would meet. For those of you who don't recognize her name, she is the girl rolling around topless in the sand in Chris Isaak's Wicked Game video. If any of the couples made it the furthest along, it would be these two. They had a baby in 1999 named Mingus and remain friends today. 

So many super(model) couples, so little time. Who did I forget? Tell me below!
