IF MODEL Heidy De la Rosa weren't a model, she could probably make a living as a professional best friend. Unfortunately for the rest of us that privilege has already been claimed by SI Swimsuit 2014 Rookie Chanel Iman.) The Puerto Rico-born model exudes the kind of positive energy that stays with you long after you meet her. So I knew she wouldn't mind if I bumped some Chris Brown and Drake and had a little fun with our impromptu photo shoot. Can't say the people in the surrounding offices appreciated the dance party as much as we did, but to all those people I say "Sorry I'm not sorry."
