For the second time in a week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s name has graced the pages of the New York Post‘s Page Six. First, it was the gossip about his “iron fence” of security at the Super Bowl, and with the second occasion, it now means we have confirmation that despite his tough exterior and gruff personality, Goodell is truly now one of the beautiful people. And thank goodness for that. Attending Kimberly Ovitz’s Fashion Week show on Thursday with his wife Jane Skinner, the Commish rubbed elbows — literally — with Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, and took in the sights, sounds, colors, materials, catwalk struts and splendor that I assume is part and parcel of any fashion show, especially one that “featured innovative clothing inspired by nature and insects, plus the debut of Kimberly’s first collection of exoskeleton-inspired jewelry.” Wait. What? Anyway, Goodell summarized the experience as follows: “This is my first fashion show. I don’t really know much about fashion, but I think it was great. When will we start to see the first reviews?” Oh, that Rog. If you ask me, I think Goodell probably believes that he should single-handedly be able to determine the quality of a fashion line and have sole authority to bring down his iron fist upon anything that doesn’t suit his fancy, effectively holding the future of careers of all designers in his hands. But maybe that’s just me. But how about Rog and Wintour? What a duo. The Devil Wears Prada? Hardly. More like The Devil Wears Nike. Or is NFL with Reebok now? It gets so confusing.
