Hockey Star Sean Avery: From Vogue Intern to Guest Editor!

Looks like hockey star and Vogue intern Sean Avery is climbing the publishing ladder with remarkable agility, advancing from lowly intern to guest editor at in just a few short weeks. In an online diary for the site, the New York Ranger gets shirtless in the Vogue fashion closet and dishes about his unlikely passion. “To me it’s simple: I like clothes. Always have,” he says. “I don’t watch sports. I don’t read about sports… Over breakfast in hotels when the Rangers are on the road, I read the Style section in The New York Times.” And Sean, who swapped his million-dollar Rangers salary for minimum wage (for the summer, at least), reveals that money’s not everything, waxing philosophical about the creative reward he experienced assisting on his first photo shoot. “As I watched the shoot progress,” he writes, “I had to wonder: Was the feeling this designer had — the pride of having his creations shot for the pages of Vogue — anything like the feeling I had after we beat the Devils in round one?… Was a young woman’s anticipation of a night on the town in her favorite new dress just a different version of a 12-year-old boy watching his favorite player No. 16 dominate New Jersey in five games? The world may never know — but that’s what I think.” We have to say, we’d never thought of it quite that way — but Sean might be onto something.

I wish Hockey Star, Sean Avery, all the best for being a Guest Editor, after he was a Vogue Intern, etc.

I like that picture. Jonathan Bodack is an idiot.

He is a loser and a disgrace to the NHL. He should stick to fashion and stay away from the skates because if he thinks that anyone has any respect for him, he’s crazy.
Screw Sean Avery.

sean you are the man, i love the comment in vogue… “If you feel like teasing this hockey player about an obsession of his that you might think is a little unusual, go right ahead. Just know that you may get your ass kicked by a very expensive pair of shoes — and that they’ll probably match both my belt and my shirt.” ughh you rock my socks.. congrats on going for all your dreams, your beautiful!!

I agree with Jenny. Does Sean Avery actually think that this will help his hockey career. Everyone in the NHL will think he is gay…and hockey guys dont like gay guys!!
