Golden Iris Awards

River Viiperi: Reader's Choice Winner for Fashion Model of the Year

By: Michael Matson

River Viiperi made Golden Iris history today.

With 49% of the vote, Viiperi is the winner of the Reader’s Choice for Fashion Model of the Year. But the Spanish pupcake also won the Golden Iris (the award chosen by the editors), an honor he shares with Andrej Pejic. This makes Viiperi the first person to tie for an award along with earning an award from both the staff and readers. Of course, we would expect nothing less from the charismatic cutie!
