He Said, She Said: Olivia Palermo & Johannes Huebl

In honour of our Love & Lust Issue, we asked cover stars Olivia Palermo and her husband Johannes Huebl to sound off (separately!) on their early days as a couple, date-night essentials and what item of clothing their significant other looks best in. Their answers? Predictably adorbs.

First Impression
Olivia: Charming and intelligent.
Johannes: What a cute ball of fun she is.

Initial Highlights
Olivia: For our first date he picked me up from The New School in the pouring rain. I had my massive golf umbrella, and I was in Converse and skinny jeans. He was quite the gentleman.
Johannes: On our second date we played tennis, which I thought was very cool, especially because she can return pretty strong.

When You “Knew”
Olivia: I think from the beginning we had a lot of respect for each other.
Johannes: I had a feeling that she would be The One from early on. Six years later, I finally asked her to be my wife.

Ideal Date Night
Olivia: Either hanging at home, justnthe two of us, or out for a nice sushi dinner.
Johannes: At home cooking dinner, enjoying good wine and just being by ourselves with Mr. Butler [the couple’s Maltese terrier].

Sexiest Wardrobe Item
Olivia: Probably a three-piece suit.
Johannes: Lingerie. But she also looks ravishing when she dresses for a night out!
