LE: This guy we don’t even know just gave them to us!
LE: We made this dinner for, like, twelve people, and this guy we don’t even know came. He’s a chef, and he’s on TV. His name is Rocco. Anyway, he was asking us what we were going to do the next day, and we said, “Rent bikes.” He said, “Oh, that’s so sad,” and the next day, he came over with these bikes!
As a gift?
LE: Yeah. I wish I could say it’s an unusual situation, but stuff like that happens not infrequently. CIARA: We don’t usually get gifts like that! We mostly get offered trips, because they want to have girls around. LE: Last weekend, we went to Croatia. We went to Sardinia the weekend before that. We went to the Bahamas six or seven times this winter. But the bike is a first. It’s cute, you know? Not presumptuous or lech-y.
Did you thank him?
LE: We exchanged texts. We said we’d take him out to dinner, but I don’t know.
Do you live together?
LE: We do everything together. Everything. We met in a model’s apartment and have lived together ever since. We’re very co-dependent.
Do you like modeling?
CIARA: It’s basically the easiest job that anyone can have. LE: I love it—you meet interesting people, you travel a lot. You have a lot of free time to ride your bike and drink margaritas.
Are you into fashion?
CIARA: I’m not that into what they put me in for magazines and stuff. LE: I’m very ungroomed. Very lazy.
