Whether it’s running through Central Park or hitting the beach, celebrities everywhere are embracing the summertime and loving their naturally sun-kissed or porcelin skin.  But despite the fact that it’s now August the cast of Jersey Shore is getting their “GTL” on, these five celebrity couples are determined to love the skin they are in without fake and baking at a tanning salon.  If you think you’re pale and were considering getting a faux glow, think again!  Take a look at these five celebrity couples, because they’re sure to make you feel comfortable and confident in the skin you’re in!

1. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson: Having pale skin isn’t just perfectly acceptable in Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight world, but in Hollywood as well.  Stars like these vamped up hotties are embracing the sun, but in a healthy way.  While traveling the world to promote their upcoming movie, Breaking Dawn Part I, Stewart and Pattinson have kept to their procelin roots even though the bronze trend is becoming a huge sensation.

2. Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied: This adorable couple has that new parents glow after welcoming their baby boy into the world this month.  Portman, who is known for her light skin, looks ravishing everywhere she goes without having that orange tint that so many celebrities are after this season.  Maybe it’s time for us to take a tip from Portman and realize a natural glow is much better than a fake one.  Fiance and baby daddy, Benjamin Millepied, seems to agree, as he’s adored Portman ever since they met on the set of their film, Black Swan.

3. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban: It looks like this couple knows just how to play it safe in the sun!  The two Aussie’s are no strangers to the sun, but when they hit the clear waters and beaches of Sydney, like they did for their 2006 wedding ceremony in North Sydney, they are careful to put on some SPF and cute shades.  What better way can these two love birds embrace their culture, than in a conscious and healthy way?

4. Dita Von Teese and Louis-Marie de Castelbajac: The sexy pin up girl and French aristocrat have caused  quite a stir since they started dating in 2010, but one thing these two don’t have to worry about is damage from the sun’s harmful rays.  Being the ex of vampire-esque Marilyn Manson may have rubbed off on Von Teese, and she’d rather be fair-skinned than brown, which we love.  Who knows – maybe this is the season to give pale skin a shot.

5. Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton: The Hollywood starlet is certainly gorgeous and breathtaking, and one of her claims to fame is her porcelain-like complexion.  While having healthy skin is most certainly in, knowing how to carry it makes all the difference.  Blanchett’s clear complexion makes her a stand out on the red carpet, and husband Andrew Upton definitely seems to approve.
