Cristen Chin Barker and Nigel Barker have certainly been the targets of Cupid's arrows. We spotted them at the premiere of "The Face" yesterday and, boy, they were getting into the spirit of Valentine's Day early! Here's a look at this couple's red carpet, red-hot history.

In front and Behind the Lens

Love was most definitely in the air for the power couple, Cristen and Nigel Barker, who were smooching and striking a few Tango poses on the red carpet. You might not know from the photos, but Nigel Barker is the hot-shot photographer who was a judge on "America's Next Top Model". He began his career modelling after becoming a finalist on the "Clothes Show" televised model search. Mr Barker worked in London, Paris, New York and Milan for several major brands over a ten-year period.

Nigel branched out into photography and, in 1996, opened his own studio and shot campaigns for several massive brands including GQ, Lexus, Ted Baker and Sony, all before working on "America's Next Top Model" for ten years.

Cristen's Cover Story

Cristen is also all kinds of awesome. She is an ex-cover girl and has appeared on the covers of Glamour, French Vogue and Cosmopolitan. The couple met in Milan through Cristen's agent and, for Nigel, it was love at first sight.

"That night, I called my mom and said, 'I've met this girl, and I'm gonna marry her.' The ground moved. As beautiful as she is on the outside, she's also got an incredible heart," he told "Page Six Magazine".

In 1999, after several years of chasing her, Nigel finally got Cristen to say "I do." They have been together 18 years and have two children. Judging by their lovey dovey poses, it's safe to say they are still very much in love.

It's going to be a smoking Valentine's Day!
