Gronk on the runway.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski lent his statuesque good looks to a charity fashion show held at Neiman Marcus in Natick, Massachusetts, Thursday night. He might even be better at modeling than Tom Brady — though he won’t contest that the quarterback is his most stylish teammate. “He’s always got his Ugg boots, his jeans on, his tight little shirt or whatever,” Gronk said at the show, which raised money for the Art beCAUSE Breast Cancer Foundation. “He’s always fashionable, no matter what day it is.” Gronk acknowledged that his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen gives him an edge: “He’s always got fashion showing.”
Gronk walked the runway to Jill Sobule’s “Supermodel,” which you might best know as Cher Horowitz’s theme song. The 23-year-old, a viral video favorite thanks to his infamous “Yo Soy Fiesta” declaration, wore a navy Ermenegildo Zegna sport coat, a Robert Graham Gerard Paint-Print Sport Shirt, white Nikes, and Hudson Jeans.
Gronk was surely thankful that he didn’t have to do his walk in heels. “High heels get me sometimes,” he said. “They look beautiful, yes, but at the same time the girls walk one mile per hour, and they can’t move. They’re always complaining, so they need to come out with something different.”
He added, “They need to invent a shoe or something that gives a good look, but is comfortable enough that you can walk around in, not walking one mile per hour.”
Well, there are always Uggs.
