Video: Sean Avery Talks About Playing With Dolls As a Child


ESPN's amazing video profile of ex–Vogue intern Sean Avery explores his double life as a fashionisto and professional hockey player. It begins with a fantastic montage of Avery playing hockey and sitting front row at the Marc Jacobs spring 2009 show. We don't know anything about hockey, but apparently Sean Avery "revels in being the most despised man in his sport." His fashion interest began as a child when he would steal dolls from his babysitters. ESPN goes shopping with Avery, who wears a shirt from one of his favorite stores Blue & Cream. "I certainly admire a nice purse — no question," he says, fondling a bag. He also discusses his Vogue days, dragging his teammates to Neiman Marcus, and brags about already having met a few gays in Dallas, where he recently moved to play hockey. The video's eight minutes long, but we recommend you watch every second of it.
