Models hang out and relax in Bernard Smith's Modellounge.

Is it too early in the week to play a little word association? *pauses for response* Am I still going to try it even if you object because I can't actually hear you over the whirr of my desktop computer? YUP! *prepares to shove ice-breaker game down readers' throats* What do you picture when you think of models off-duty? Is it street style shots of loping gazelles of women walking expertly on stiletto Louboutins across cobble stone streets? Seemingly impossible cheekbones hovering over effortless high fashion ensembles? While that's still all pretty true, there's a totally other side that we don't typically get to see — models just being regular girls, hanging out, practicing their walks, and playing video games and stuff — and there's actually a place in NYC where all that off-off duty action goes down: Modellounge X Microsoft.
