To celebrate their spring/summer collection, Valentine's Day, and the fact that male models exist, XOXO has enlisted a handful of "Hot Cupids" to stand around semi-shirtless in Herald Square today. They're appropriately stationed between Macy's and Victoria's Secret, passing out Valentine's Day survival kits that consist of a thong, breath mints, chapstick, a compact mirror, and Hershey's Kisses.
We swung by this morning to check
them out the scene, and found that the weather was a little too nippy for them to be bare-chested, as was the original plan. Instead, you can find them clad in red robes, white angel wings, and little red bow-ties until 1pm.
