With a marriage that has lasted over two decades, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon are a poster couple in Hollywood. Both have booming careers (he has starred in big-screen films like "Footloose," while she rules the small screen, including her award-winning role on TNT's hit crime series, "The Closer.") But like many other celebrity couples, their marriage has not been without controversy -- during a 2011 appearance on the PBS ancestry show "Finding Your Roots," the pair learned that they are distant cousins -- er, interesting?
In this 1988 photograph, the engaged couple were spotted at the "Long Day's Journey Into Night" opening party. Bacon wore an all-black suit, with slicked-back hair (surprise, surprise), while Sedgwick looked cute in voluminous curls and a belted maxi dress. We love their relaxed look and think it would make the perfect Valentine's Day ensemble for those whose plans are a little more low-key.
