Lance Armstrong: Fashion and Bridal Guru?

05/20/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Dating fashion designer Tory Burch is definitely rubbing off on Lance Armstrong. The first thing the seven-time Tour de France winner did when he encountered his friend Daniel Boulud on the red carpet at last week’s Modern Bride Trendsetter Awards in N.Y.C. was straighten the chef’s collar and tie. He shared that his pocket square was added by Tory, but, “She doesn’t like it when I wear T-shirts – especially my ratty T-shirts.” Armstrong, who is spending quite a bit of time in New York these days, has been on a social whirlwind that is very different from his Texas get-togethers. “Texas is very relaxed,” he said. “We don’t have events like this and certainly nothing like the [Costume Institute Gala at the] Met,” which he attended on Monday with Burch. “It was quite the scene,” he said of the Met. But the athlete was actually picking up tips at the Modern Bride event. “I’m having a wedding at my house in like 10 days [for his stepsister], so I’m a little nervous, but we had a party for 500 last week, which was a good trial run.”

Tori Burch is a dead ringer for Katie Curic!!

faith on

well, they both look nice, and she is very pretty, but for some reason i still can’t get past the way he ended his relationship with sheryl crow. and before that his wife. he just kind of seems like a dog.

j on

lance definitely has a ‘type’–his ex wife, sheryl crow, and tory burch all look SO similar…thin little blondes with very similar features. faith–i don’t think he’s a dog, just a man. lol!! ;)

I just think it’s interesting that Tory doesn’t like him in t-shirts. Doesn’t he totally seem like a t-shirts and jeans kinda guy?

faith on

i agree skeddy. he’s a professional athlete— is he supposed to wear a button down oxford while biking?

and very funny j :)– sad but often true! i’m just glad i have a good one!

Modern Bride Awards, huh? I hope he remembers the bridal dress Sheryl had designed, and the matching dresses his little girls had already fitted. The dog will only ever love himself.
