Sean Avery for Vogue
Isn't it funny how pro-hockey players are granted fast-track status when it comes to Vogue internships while there are tens of millions of fashion-obsessed kids willing to fight tooth and nail (or perhaps kill) just to get a whiff of precious Conde Nast oxygen?
Sean Avery, hockey player, got an internship at Vogue just by writing a letter.
Earlier this year — just before the playoffs, actually — I wrote to the editor in chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, and expressed my desire to intern for the magazine once
my team won the Stanley Cup. After just a couple of days I got the
answer I was looking for.
I don't know about you but that internship smells of Eau de Publicitestunt to bring sports-readers to buy Men's Vogue! Hahaha *wink* Now where's Carine Roitfeld, Cecilia Dean or Janice Min (HALE YES!!!) when you need them most?
PS. *hyperventilates* OMG OMG OMG I LOOK LIKE A DOUCHE (or as someone online said, I look like a "twenty-nine year old four year old" haha) BUT I'M ON TEEN VOGUE! Thanks guys for the mention. Teen Vogue is the best! Where were you when I was a child? Back in the dark ages, all we had was friggin Teen Beat, Tiger Beat and YM!!!
Kids these days eh? They have everything!
