Today Forbes released their list of the top 15 best dressed athletes with Sean Avery and Henrik Lundqvist making the cut…
The NHL star agitator surprised everyone when he announced he would be interning at Vogue, where he maintained the men’s fashion closet, guest-edited the blog for now-defunct Men’s Vogue and attended the couture shows in Paris. Since his internship ended Avery has acted as a muse/consultant for fashion label Commonwealth Utilities and penned a biweekly style advice column for AskMen.com. Among his most prized fashion possessions: a pair of patent leather Yves Saint Laurent high-tops.
This dashing Swedish goalie is easily the National Hockey League’s most elegant dresser. Lundqvist never wears T-shirts, likes skinny ties and counts Dior, Hugo Boss and Tiger of Sweden among his favorite brands. Teammates have admitted they are a bit baffled by his “European” style and “tight pants.”
…just another reason why Avery deserves to be in the All Star game.
