I can't get over these dark-romance vibes and you can't tell me the connection these two have isn't giving you chills. Here's a behind-the-scenes fact for you: our Models Alan and Abbey are professionally trained aerialists and totally slay some trapeze on the regular. Their chemistry during their performance is just as fiery in real life. Okay, can you tell I'm head over heels for them yet?
