Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, River Viiperi, were in Barcelona, Spain this week for the Spanish model's fashion gig.
The high profile nature of Viiperi's fashion job this week at Barcelona's DHUB Design Center shows just how in demand he in, but as for Paris, she reportedly was happy to just hang out in Spain and stay in the background.
At Monday's Mango fashion gig, where her boyfriend was featuring, Hilton remained almost anonymous, staying well out of the spotlight.
According to reports Hilton refused to push herself out into public spots where, no doubt, she would have been picked up by numerous eager photographers.
Hilton even avoided the "photocall," which is where most of the rich and famous can be seen and photographed. Instead, Hilton sneaked in late after things were already getting underway and the lights were down. However, she made sure she snuck into position in the front row to be able to see her boyfriend take to the catwalk.
When she was seen, Hilton appeared in a red suit, and fitted into the crowd almost incognito-like.
Hilton has been dating Viiperi since September 2012. He is a male model who has worked for designer fashion labels such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and H&M. He has also famously been photographed by Mario Testing for the most prestigious fashion magazines.
Viiperi is the son of a Spanish father and a Finnish mother. He was born in Ibiza, and has lived there as well as in the Canary Islands, Finland and Madrid. According to models.com he is also one of the top 50 best-paid models in the world at present.
