I came across a picture of Cher and Gene Simmons from the late 1970s that reminded me of the paparazzi pics of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, the joking way the couples dealt with the press. This was before the craziness of late-80s aggro paparazzi.
Back then Gene Simmons did not appear in public without is KISS makeup on. So when the couple went out or did publicity, Gene would have to obscure his face or hide behind Cher.
In this snapshot, Cher is obscured but seen to be joining in the game of wearing a handkerchief.
Which reminded me of this shot of Christie and Billy (I actually remembered this pic from seeing it in the 1980s!):
