Pete Wentz is one busy man these days — between becoming a dad with wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, working with his band Fall Out boy and his Clandestine clothing line, the rocker is not having a slow summer. But he took time out from DJing MTV and Sunkist’s end of summer bash on the rooftop of the London Hotel in West Hollywood to talk to PEOPLE about his passion for fashion. While he’s not positive he’s going to make it to New York fashion week, he’s thinking about Paris and their avant-garde set. “I’m always excited, there’s like certain designers that I always want to see. I think I might try and go in Paris, in the fall, actually, and see the stuff out there, but I don’t know if I’m going to make it. My top, top one that I’d like to see go down the runway is Victor & Rolf because it’s just so bananas, like the time the models went down and each was a mini fashion show, they all had speakers and lights on them, or the one where they were green screened. And then I really like Dior, because I feel like I can really wear a lot of their stuff.” And of course, Pete continues to support his hometown fashion scene in Chicago. “It’s called Fashion Focus this fall and we’re going to be involved in that. We’re pretty excited about that because sometimes it’s nice to bring a little attention to in between the coasts, and I’m proud to be a mid-west kid.” Looks like there is no slowing down for this multi-tasker!

I always guessed he was more of a fashion man than a music man

He is such a waste of time (and he couldn’t look more gay if he tried).

Seriously. I hate to use the word tool, but could he be any more of one??? If what he wears is considered fashionable then I will take uncool any day of the week.
