I went backstage after yesterday afternoon’s Animale spring/summer 2012 show and guess who I met? Raquel Zimmermann! She flew in from New York specifically for the show.

She’s the ultimate. I always think of her as the model’s model — a complete thoroughbred with major staying power and has been around for quite some time. She’s very warm and friendly. I saw her taking photos with fans so I decided to approach her. Before I said a word, she asked if I was Bryanboy so I said yes, and she told me she reads my blog. SMH smacking my head. I DIED.
