athletes invade the costume institute
We've all heard that the theme of the upcoming Costume Institute exhibit is Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy. But now, according to this bit from the Daily, we're hearing that there will be some special guests at the party of the year: today's superheroes - athletes. Some of the sporty guests are obvious choices, like Anna's favorite tennis boy-toy Roger Federer (above) and this month's Vogue stars LeBron James, Michael Phelps, and Apollo Anton Ohno. Lance Armstrong used to date Tory Burch, so he's in with the fashion crowd, Andre Agassi scored himself a Louis Vuitton campaign not long ago, and didn't Andy Roddick just get himself engaged to some model? Kelly Slater and David Beckham are total babes, so there's that...
But what is golfer and otherwise normal guy Phil Mickelson going to do with himself?
