Why won't anyone invite Michael Vick to Fashion Week?

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 2:04 PM

Page Six reports that former dog fighter Michael Vick's people have been "sniffing around" (cleverrrrr) for an invite to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC in February ...

Making a play for the front row at New York Fashion Week: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. A source tells us that a publicist for the NFL star “is asking around for Fashion Week invites.” It sounds like Vick is keen to develop links with the fashion world by following in the footsteps of Amar’e Stoudemire, who sat front row at Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2011 and later inked a deal to design a fashion line with Rachel Roy. But we’re told Vick, who isn’t known for his sartorial sense, hasn’t quite been besieged with invites to sit with Anna Wintour and company. One Fashion Week insider told us [they're] “curious who will have him.”

I quick Google image search indicates that Michael Vick is no Amar'e Stoudemire, that's for sure. Still, athletes and fashion do occasionally together like dog fur and a cheap, department store coats.
