Where in Paris is Sean Avery? The Vogue celebrintern was supposed to attend the couture shows with Anna Wintour, André Leon Talley, et al, but he's nowhere to be seen! Turns out he wasn't able to attend because of hockey. You know, that extracurricular activity he does from time to time. He's in negotiations to renew his contract with the New York Rangers so he couldn't steal away for fashion's most glamorous few days, which also would have been prime sucking-up time for him. Lame excuse, we know. He told Style.com, "I'm sad. I spent three days packing." Hell, this hurts us. No one — even the most spoiled of interns — should have to turn down a trip to the couture shows with the crème de la crème of Vogue. Especially for sports.
