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, Vogue Internship

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!!!

    It pisses me off that someone who has already found success in their field turns around and steals an oppurtunity they do not deserve from those who do deserve it and truly want it. What can he possibly know about fashion, aside from sleeping with Vogue executives?
