The lips! Those eyes! That hair! For our latest installment of ‘Male Model Moments’, we caught up with River Viiperi. We first met the mod at Marlon Gobel’s show a few years ago, and he told us backstage about his movie star ambitions. We believed him. You’ve likely spotted him walking for Versace, Dolce  & Gabbana and Jeremy Scott, and in campaigns for CK One, Tommy Hilfiger, or Ralph Lauren Rugby. While we await that first feature, he was nice enough to answer some burning questions about himself. Check him out socially at @RiverViiperi

How would you describe your current state of mind? Peaceful
