DREAM TEAM: What do you get if you put together three basketballers, an American football player and a soccer goalkeeper? The front row of the Lanvin men’s show in Paris on Sunday.
Nick Young, Dwyane Wade, Serge Ibaka, Victor Cruz and German soccer player Loris Karius joined guests including Max Irons, Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis, Xavier Veilhan and Bouchra Jarrar, Lanvin’s new women’s designer.
Irons revealed he is about to shoot “The Wife” opposite Glenn Close and Christian Slater. Before then, he will star in “Terminal,” which sees him playing against type. He described his character in the black comedy as a “nasty piece of work, for once, which is fun — a hit man, actually.”
Karius confirmed he was likely to skip the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, in which Germany will compete, in order to join his new team Liverpool for the pre-season. “We’re holding talks now,” he said. “At the moment, it looks like I’m going to stay with Liverpool.”
He was upbeat about the transfer, despite all the uncertainty linked to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. “I can’t change what’s happening out there, so I don’t worry about it too much. We’ll see what’s going to go on there, but football-wise, I’m really excited to go,” he said.
Expect to see the chisel-jawed blonde become more involved in fashion, too. “We’re working on some things,” he teased.
