We're mere days away from the March 17 premiere of The Fabulist on E!, and needless to say we're pretty pumped for the first episode.

In honor of the premiere being just around the corner, we're treating you to some exclusive behind the scenes scoop! Hosts Kristin Cavallari and Orly Shani will be joined by panelists Nigel Barker (host of Oxygen's The Face) and supermodel Jessica White for the premiere episode.

Nigel and Jessica will discuss the latest hot trends with Kristin and Orly, deciding which trends are here to stay and which ones should go back from where they came, never to return again. 

Watch: Nigel Barker's Tips for a Perfect Selfie

In a moment of downtime during filming, fashion photographer Nigel gave us a super informative (and hilarious!) demonstration of how to take the perfect selfie. There's a science to it, people! "First and foremost, don't hold your camera high in the air! It gives you a really gigantic head," warned Nigel. "Bring it down, shoulder length—that's what us fashion photographers do."

Nigel also explained that taking a perfect selfie isn't just about how you look; it's about how you feel, too. "If you can't think of something really cool and emotive, maybe think of a piece of chocolate melting in your mouth," advises Nigel. "Or think about who you have a crush on, or play some music in your head. All those things will make your picture come alive." Got it? Good! Watch the entire video for Nigel's full selfie demo.

Speaking of cell phones and Nigel...while Kristin and Orly got primped and prepped for filming, the topic came up: During all his time working with the legendary Naomi Campbell, did Nigel ever have a cell phone thrown at him? "No, I never have! Naomi is so gracious, friendly and sweet," he said. "That's the part of her you don't hear as much about, because what gets reported is the cell phone throwing and the craziness, and people focus on that. But you don't get to stay at the top for that long if that's the only side to you."

With Nigel and Jessica on board as the first guest panelists, you definitely don't want to miss the very first episode of The Fabulist!

Be sure to tune in and watch The Fabulist premiere on Monday, March 17 at 8:30/7:30c on E!
