While there are many reasons why interracial couples are beautiful, we love that they show the world that race means nothing more than a difference in skin color when it comes to love. That’s certainly the case for our very favorite interracial power couples in this list.
These featured couples have achieved so much both on their own and together. Through their actions, they have shown the world that it isn’t about two races coming together, but two people and two cultures that are being shared. By highlighting these power couples, we are celebrating everything that they have accomplished, and we are recognizing the influence that Asians are slowly but surely having on society.
NICOLE WARNE and LUKE BOLT
Nicole Warne, also known as Garypeppergirl, is not only being a successful model, creative director, stylist, blogger, ambassador and entrepreneur, she also gets to add the title of wife to her very impressive credentials. Engaged to Australian professional photographer Luke Bolt, Nicole and Luke continue to remain a powerhouse couple both professionally and personally.
TERRANCE HOWARD and MIRA CRISTINE PAK
Academy award nominee and the star of a new series, Terrance Howard now gets to welcome a baby boy into his family. Being biracial with African American and European American heritage, Howard’s son will also be part Korean thanks to his wife. Mira Pak has both beauty and brains, owning her own restaurant while handling a modeling career. Even though this couple wed only after a month of dating, they continue to prove skeptics wrong by being a beautiful and happy family.
LORDE and JAMES LOWE
James Lowe and singer Lorde were pushed into the limelight in 2013 when they were the victims of racist cyberbullying. Thankfully, the incredible couple was able to shake off the haters and focus on their beautiful relationship. With no motivation for fame, Lowe and Lorde are clearly just two offbeat kids in love.
MAGGIE Q and DYLAN McDERMOTT
Maggie Q has been a recent powerhouse, both representing women and Asian culture throughout the media. The amazing actress met The Practice‘s Dylan McDermott who is her equal in both talent and success. They balance each other out in a way where neither of them overpower the other. Instead, they uplift and support each other’s success.
JOHN LEGEND and CHRISSY TEIGEN
Every girl secretly dreamed that John Legend’s “All of Me” was for her. But that beautiful ballad was written for his gorgeous wife Chrissy Teigen. Chrissy, having a Norwegian father and a Thai mother, is a biracial bombshell. Aside from being a model, she works hard as a writer and cook, and she devotes her love to her husband. Even though Legend’s silky voice and emotional ballads have swept the hearts of millions of women, he only has eyes for Chrissy.
JENN IM and BEN JOLLIFFE
Jenn Im, also known as Clothesencounter, rose to fame through YouTube and has been dominating the fashion and blogging scene for years. Recently getting together with member of English Rock Band’s Young Guns, Ben Jolliffe, Jenn and Ben have been the dream team. Not only are they interracial, they are an international couple as well. With Ben living in England and Jenn in America, they prove that long distance relationships can work and that time apart only makes the heart grow fonder.
MARK ZUCKERBERG and PRISCILLA CHAN
Maybe one of the most literal power couples out there, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan are ironically the least talked about. Even though– thanks to Facebook– they are one of the richest couples in the world, this married pair keeps a very low profile. Modest in their success, they enjoy each other’s company and quietly continue to dominate the world.
