He has been in several advertising campaigns, including those for Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani Exchange, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Moschino, Blumarine, Versace for H&M, American Eagle, Bershka and Calvin Klein,.
At the age of 18, his modeling career took off. He has since booked international campaigns for brands such as Versace, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Bershka; and walking for Social Primer and Calvin Klein shows.
In 2016, Viiperi was named a "supermodel" by Glamour for his "social-media power," by Out for his cover shoot for Attitude,
and by GQ for his work with Polo Ralph Lauren, stating that he "has become one of the most sought-after faces in the [modeling] business and is thought of as very much the next big thing."
Viiperi was born in Ibiza to a Spanish father, and Riitta Viiperi, his mother, a Finnish model. He grew up between Helsinki, Finland, and Madrid, Spain. Viiperi speaks fluent Spanish, Finnish and English.
To his fans, Viiperi is perhaps best known for dating the socialite Paris Hilton in about 2012-2013; his "partying with Paris Hilton" and over-sleeping the morning of an important photo shoot gained him notoriety during New York Fashion Week in 2012. Viiperi has acknowledged his reputation as a "douchebag, cocky, arrogant model," but says that when people meet him, it's "nice" to change their minds.
