Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City kicked-off last night with the 9th Annual Style Awards held at The Stage at Lincoln Center. The awards were organized by Style Media, IMG Fashion and Penske Media Corp. and honorees were chosen by the Style Awards’ Nominating Committee, made up of individuals in the entertainment and fashion communities. This year’s “Most Stylish Athlete” honors went to New York Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist. Lundqvist and his Rangers teammates enjoy making a fashion statement off-the-ice (as seen in this New York Post fashion shoot) but he leads the pack as the team’s best-dressed. With an impeccable sense of style marked by elegant, perfectly-tailored suits, he’s always turned heads when his hockey gear is replaced with designer duds. The evening’s festivities had Henrik dapperly-dressed in a navy suit from Calvin Klein, as he accepted the fashion award from NASCAR driver, Jeff Gordon.   Among the other sportsman in attendance were New York Knick, Amar’e Stoudemire. With Fashion Week in full force, fans can expect to see all three guys lining show front rows. The Style Awards will air on The Style Network on Friday, September 14th at 8pm ET/PT. In the red carpet interview below, Lundqvist discusses his award, the best style advice he’s received and the Rangers’ uniforms: watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nxemahisiJg
