Celebrities are used to be in front of camera lenses at events, and Fashion Week is no different — but a meeting with one photographer left Victoria Justice starstruck and speechless.

As Justice recalls for EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told video series, she became a fan of famed New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham after seeing a documentary about him, and told her mom she hoped to see him the next time she attended Fashion Week in New York.

Sure enough, as she was heading to attend the Diane Von Furstenberg show, she saw him — and immediately freaked out.

Watch the video above to see what she said when she met Cunningham, and how he responded.

Justice’s latest movie, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List, is available now to buy or rent on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
