An Ode to the Coolest Football Wives and Girlfriends

Truth be told, I had no idea who was playing in the Super Bowl up until about noon today (am I the only one?). However, something I do know about is strong women that make great wives and girlfriends. Therefore in honour of this weekend's festivities, scroll down to brush up on the leading ladies of the NFL, and don't forget to share which one you most admire in the comments.

Jessica Simpson's $1 billion empire—built upon the simple foundation of making women feel beautiful and confident—is undeniably one of the most impressive celebrity business successes of our time. "I have been every size on the planet, and I understand women." Amen!

Boyfriend: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers

We describe the Mortdecai actress in the office as the personification of a girl every guy would want to date. She's funny, hot, and goes to Comic Con.

Husband: Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler

The shelf life of a reality star's fame is usually short-lived, which is why we were pleased to see the Laguna Beach star's unexpected step back into the limelight. Not only does she make one stylish mum (have you seen her collection for Chinese Laundry?), she's even writing a book (dubbed "Balancing in Heels"), expected to debut in Spring 2016.

Where do we begin? Whether it's her chic coat game on Scandal, or her bold, colourful red carpet risks, Washington is always on our radar.

Sigh. Perhaps the first woman you think of when you hear the words "football wife", the mogul mum's accolades extend far beyond her marriage. Not only did she look stunning in Chanel's S/S 15 campaign, she's also got killer yoga moves.
