Wintour, who put LeBron James on her cover a few years back ... personally invited Stoudemire to last night's Fashion's Night Out runway show at Lincoln Center, and word is he'll join editor-at-large Hamish Bowles at the Tommy Hilfiger runway show on Sunday. "Amar'e wasn't planning on going out last night, but he changed his mind after getting the invite from Anna," said a pal of the athlete.
Hopefully Stoudemire won't be "styled" in the same King Kong-inspired "fashion forward" aesthetic as LeBron James, when he posed with Gisele Bundchen in March 2008 to become the first Black man to cover Vogue in its 115-year history.
In related news: Halle Berry covers the current September 2010 Vogue. Berry is the first non-white person grace the publication's all-important September issue in more than 20 years. "The last—and first, it should be noted—was Naomi Campbell’s in 1989," reports Styleite.com. "[Berry] is part of only a small handful of black cover stars ever. There have been a total of 14 in the history of the magazine and all its international editions."
Those numbers speak for themselves, no?
