Couples We Love

 

We generally like to spotlight our favorite style icons–those who teach us how to travel, dress and live well and for ourselves. With Valentine’s Day approaching, however, we’re feeling the love and dedicate this post to relationships that go beyond the surface–that not only inspire us to live well, but to love well and right. Cheers to these and all iconic couples, past and present.

 

Joanne Woodward & Paul Newman

Of course, Paul Newman tops our everything list–his classic and effortless style is unrivaled, and he remains an inspiration to us as the epitome of timeless chic. But as they say, “Behind every great man…” is a Joanne Woodward. Showbusiness marriages are not uncommon, of course, but the love between Joanne and Paul was certainly unique as the two remained together…married for fifty years until Paul’s death in 2008. Paul credited the success of his union with Joanne to the “equal parts lust and respect” that they had for one another. If pictures are worth any words at all, then we believe him…

 

 

Johnny & June Cash

Another great love story born from the entertainment industry, Johnny and June Cash were partners in every aspect of life. Not only did the duo win two Grammy awards for their duets, but June also inspired “Ring of Fire”, which is easily one of Cash’s most famous songs. Beyond a successful career together, June is credited for helping Johnny conquer his addiction to drugs and alcohol. The two were married for 35 years and Johnny was holding June’s hand when she died in May of 2003 due to complications during heart surgery. He died only 4 months later and his family released this statement: “We also take solace in the knowledge that he is again reunited with his dearest companion, June.”

 

Amelia Earhart and George Putnam


Amelia Earhart is one of our favorite style icons–her iconic leather travel hat and jacket were a small representation of her future as a style icon, endorsing luggage and eventually creating a label for women who lived active lives. But before her success as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia was interviewed by American publisher/author George Putnam–assigned to the task of finding a woman pilot to sponsor–and soon thereafter the two began a relationship that, like Amelia’s spirit, was permeated with adventure. The two traveled the world, and after Putnam’s 6th proposal, Amelia agreed to marry him with the insistence on marriage as an equal partnership, which appeared a successful approach for the two. She described their relationship as ” a reasonable and contented partnership; my husband with his solo jobs, and I with mine; but the system of dual control works satisfactorily and our work and our play is a great deal together.”
