We figured the hoopla surrounding Sean Avery’s Vogue internship died down because he returned to his day job as a hockey player. But though he’s presumably spending less time with Anna Wintour these days, he apparently still loves hanging around fashion magazines. The New York Post reports Avery was spotted last week “schmoozing with editors” at (gasp!) Marie Claire’s offices!
“He was perusing the racks in the fashion closet with editor in chief Joanna Coles,” said our spy. “He was promising to take her two boys to a hockey game.” Avery, who stayed a few hours, was in plaid shorts and carrying a huge garment bag stuffed with clothing from The Row, the Olsen twins’ line. “He had the fashion editors actually trying on the clothes and modeling them,” laughed our spy.
Perhaps he was practicing his styling services and trying to drum up buzz for his new celebrity styling company? Or maybe Vogue’s mad at him for missing the couture shows and he’s trying to score a new gig? If that’s the case, we could probably come up with an extra large athlete’s cube for Seany in our offices. No workplace is complete without a famous intern, after all.
