This isn't the first time Fashion Week has coincided with the Super Bowl, but the Tom Brady–Gisele Bündchen connection and the presence of the Giants in the big game make choosing what to watch a little tougher this year. We asked the tough question: Football or fashion?
Tyson Beckford: "I’ve got to work. I actually had a Super Bowl ticket, which I had to give up. I’m really mad at Bravo right now. I’m going to bring my Giants flag to the shows. I live right next to Jeremy Shockey and Amani Toomer."
Philip Bloch: "Both. I’m definitely going to be watching football somewhere between Angel Sanchez and Miss Sixty. I know where the cute guys are. And they're not on the Giants."
Robert Verdi: "Fashion. I'm working. But, in general, that’s a booty question, and then it's football, of course. I mean, I wish the pants were pink, but they are tight."
Miss J. Alexander: "Fashion! If I'm watching football, I'm watching their asses."
Rose McGowan: "I’m watching the Puppy Bowl. Do you know what that is? It’s on Animal Planet. The puppies are in kind of a football field, and it’s just watching puppies roll around in the whole thing."
Jaime King: "Fashion. With capital letters."
Ally Hilfiger: "I am so torn! But I can’t deal with the anxiety. So I would just rather go to Diane, see the beautiful clothes, and just find out the score when I get out.”
Becki Newton from Ugly Betty: "Definitely fashion in this little family. We’re not really sports people."
Husband Chris Diamantopoulos: "I’ve been vetoed."
Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: "Both! We’re going to the Adidas Y-3 show, and then straight home to watch the Super Bowl. It’s a very serious day."
Michael Ball: "Football. We’re going to have a sleepover, as usual. As many models as want to come."
Victoria Silvstedt: "Football! I love the Giants. But I prefer looking at Tom Brady. I don’t want anybody to tackle that pretty face."
Sophia Bush: "I think I’m going to go to a show in the morning and park it on the couch tomorrow and watch the game. Pizza, chicken fingers, French fries, beer — that’s my football food. But no wings for me."
Nicky Hilton: "I haven’t decided yet. But I really want to watch the Super Bowl. I'm rooting for New York."
Vivica A. Fox: "I’m rushing back home. I’m getting off the plane at noon. I’m cooking by 1 p.m. It’s going to be taco Sunday at Vivica’s house. Go, Giants!" —Jada Yuan, Bennett Marcus and Amy Odell
