Apparently it's common knowledge that I am minority obsessed with River Viperii. I mean look at him... even Paris Hilton jumped on that bandwagon (but don't tell him- the last thing that boy needs is another reason to talk about himself and how great he is. I say that with love, but I mean come on. I spent a good six hours with him and he asked me maybeee two questions about myself.) But, this is why, late one night, my friend called and asked if I wanted to work on a shoot the next morning featuring Viperii?
Pulling up to Root studios in Willamsburg at the (very generous by industry standards) hour of 8am, the stylist (one of my favorites and such a sweety –David Gomez-Villamediana), the other fashion assistant, and I went through the normal set-up routine of unpacking all the clothes and laying out all of the accessories, ect.
Then, around 9am or so, this absolutely stunning boy walks into the room wearing that stupid red hat he always seems to have on, and it’s really hard not to stare at him. I’m not normally one to be interested in someone whose attractiveness is quite so all-up-in-your-face about it, but holy mother of pearl! This was a beautiful boy. At first I did put a little effort into trying not to notice; after all I do value professionalism rather highly… but let’s all give me a break. I’m still an 18-year-old girl at the end of the day.
It took me about two hours of standing next to him (even putting him in a skirt) to work up the nerve to actually speak to him. When I did,
I wish I hadn’t he was actually surprisingly
pleasant. Apart from his I-hate-Brooklyn-rant, his obsessive hitting on the
older model- Maryna Linchukhe (blehhh))- (he and Harry Styles should talk), and
his attempt to make everyone on set believe that I was not actually working
there, but was, in fact, a random stalker who walked in off the street, he was
really sweet. actually no, that was it. You just look at that
smile and he could literally be insulting you (as he did on many occasions) and you will still fall in love with him! Honestly though he is a really cool guy. He did
carry a heavy box down the street for me once and probably got me some new twitter
followers with this (on a separate occasion):
Overall the day was a breeze, I think we were able to get out of the studio by 7 or 8.pm Considering that most of the shots took place outside, it was very fortunate that the weather was as beautiful as it was that day. In addition to the cloudless sky, I don’t know if any of you are familiar with the geography of Brooklyn, you could pretty much see the entire skyline of lower Manhattan from where we were shooting and I just had one of those “Is this seriously my life?” moments of disbelief when you realize and appreciate how completely blessed you are.
Givenchy twins- imagine all the places this nose ring has been? It was tried on no less than everybody on set. And that's only in the span of 12-hours.
