Fashion's Unlikely Fans: Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony

06/22/2011 at 06:00 PM ET

Milan Fashion Week

They’re all-stars on the courts, but this week, basketball standouts Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony were both sidelined — at Milan Fashion Week, that is. The unlikely friends — Wade plays for the Miami Heat (and dates PEOPLE StyleWatch cover girl Gabrielle Union), while Anthony (married to LaLa Vazquez) shoots hoops for the New York Knicks — made the rounds at a series of shows, including Armani and DSquared2, Tweeting as they went. The guys posted pictures of themselves dressed to the nines, shared links (a photo of Wade with stylist Brad Goreski and George Clooney‘s ex-girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, ended up on Tumblr) and gave their input on the runway presentations (Anthony called Armani “EPIC”). But the dapper dudes weren’t the only stars in town: at the Versace show, they were joined in the front row by Glee‘s Darren Criss (in bright pink socks!), Zachary Quinto, True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford. Our invitation to join them must have been lost in the mail … –Kate Hogan

[...] Not only is he a Knicks player, but the above photo was taken when Carmello Anthony attended a Versace fashion show. That’s how we know he has good taste. If that doesn’t prove it, check out his arm candy. It seems like he does a good job at matching his accessories to his wardrobe. We like that. We like that a lot. (Image via [...]
