Supermodels Who Married Rock Stars
Through the years, supermodel and rockstar couples have become more and more common. What made the opposite worlds attracted to each other? There must be a charm that guys in a band have that attracts women, including models. Is it their bad-boy attitude that makes girls swoon or their intense masculinity that made the girls go crazy? Anyway, here are the famous rockstar and supermodel pairings that deserve some kind of credit for bridging the world of music and fashion.
