With his contract status still in limbo and July 1 fast approaching, Sean Avery is consuming himself with more pressing issues.
Global warming? The sagging economy? No, silly, making sure Angelina Jolie wears the right shoes to the Golden Globes!
Thanks to reader Lauren for this link to a People.com item about the Rangers left wing/Vogue intern “branching further out into the world of fashion”:http://offtherack.people.com/2008/06/09/hockey-star-sean-avery-turns-celeb-stylist/, with a new venture as celebrity stylist.
â€œWe want to get it back to the point where girls donâ€™t worry about what US Weekly says. Itâ€™s about expressing individual style and just wearing whatâ€™s cool. Iâ€™m totally consumed by fashion. We want to help them bring their individuality back.â€
OK, so I may lurk at the opposite end of the fashion spectrum, with everyone from my wife to Rangers players this season feeling the need to point out my glaring lack of style. I respectfully disagree—my current T-shirt, shorts and flip-flops outfit is to die for!—but I actually give Avery credit for daring to venture outside the hockey player mold.
And who knows? I’m not quite the A-list clientele he’s after but maybe he’d be willing to help a rumpled sportswriter channel his inner Calvin Klein (which I believe is good. I don’t know).
