For any of us who have been following Sean Avery’s trajectory from hockey player to Vogue intern to celebrity stylist, his recent contract with the Dallas Stars seemed like it might throw a wrench in his fashion plans. The Big D may have birthed Neiman Marcus, but there aren’t too many starlets there looking for professional help getting red-carpet-ready. And today, brings the news that Avery’s business partner, Lauryn Flynn, has signed on to be the head of Burberry’s VIP services, ending the speculation on their styling business. Well, hockey’s gain is fashion’s loss — at least we’ll always have his Gap ads.
