Viacom’s Next Top Model: How VH1 Surprised Employees to Celebrate the Season Premiere of America’s Next Top Model

When you work at Viacom, it’s good to be camera-ready. On Monday, Dec. 12, the lobby at Viacom Headquarters transformed into a fashion show featuring our own employees as models.

Employees at Viacom Headquarters pose for paparazzi on Monday, Dec. 12, 2016.

The morning surprise was in honor of VH1‘s series premiere of America’s Next Top Model, which aired later that night.

I ascended the elevator to a frenzy of flashbulbs, momentum, and swagger. VH1 staff members passed out pairs of trendy sunglasses and directed us towards the pink runway flanked by paparazzi waiting to snap our photos. With the professional photographers, star treatment, and chaotic energy, Viacom headquarters felt more like a Fashion Week tent.

We handled the impromptu shoot with the grace of natural supermodels, putting on our new shades and strutting down the runway. I was trying to find my ID card and juggling a bottle of water, but posing when you’re caught off-guard is just part of the celebrity lifestyle.

Take a look at our model employees. We think Tyra would approve.
