Chicago Bulls guard Ben Gordon, one of the standout players in the NBA, goes from making some rather suggestive moves on-the-court to making some moves behind the scenes in the fashion industry. Gordon is well-known for his tasteful fashion aesthetic and gets his fashionista on for ESPN: The Magazine. The baller spends the day and camps it up with Simon Doonan, the Barney's creative director and husband to designer and Bravo personality Jonathan Adler.
"I have a European fashion sense," Gordon tells Doonan. "I love the fine tailoring and the fit."
AFTER THE JUMP, via Rod 2.0 reader FF, watch the video and a few more photos. And despite the many stereotypes, how freakin' cool is it that a black professional ball player appreciates fashion and can glam and camp it up with fashion's power gays?
Simon Doonan tells ESPN: "Ben has a good eye and an attention to detail, so I'm sure he could make the transition. Just tell him to quit trying to steal my job."
