Barcelona, Jan 30 (IANS/EFE) Celebrity Paris Hilton is currently accompanying her boyfriend, Spanish model River Viiperi, as he takes to the runway to show off designer collections at 080 Barcelona Fashion.
The millionaire turned up as just one more fashionista at Barcelona’s new DHUB Design Center to preview the designers’ new looks “backstage”.
More discreet than usual, Paris Hilton went Monday night by surprise to the Mango runway show to see her 21-year-old boyfriend strut the new styles, without passing “photocall” where all the famous front-row guests had their pictures taken.
In fact, the rich American heiress ensured her anonymity by arriving when the lights were already turned down and the fashion show was about to start, and slipped into a row where the youngest guests were seated, taking a place beside Jonathan Andic, the son of the president of Mango.
Dressed in a red suit, she watched each time River Viiperi passed by, with whom she has been going out since September 2012, and who has worked with the likes of Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and H&M, and has been photographed by Mario Testino for the most prestigious fashion magazines.
Viiperi, son of a Spanish father and a Finnish mother, has lived in Ibiza, where he was born, as well as in the Canary Islands, Finland and Madrid, and according to the authoritative Web site models.com, is one of the 50 best-paid models in the world.
