Carmelo Anthony to Grace Pages of Vogue Italia

Standing at a looming 6ft. 8 in. tall, Carmelo Anthony may have the stature to model.  Perhaps that’s why the New York Knicks player will grace the pages of Vogue Italia, New York magazine reports.  The hubby of La La Vazquez told the website that he shot a multi-page spread and expects to be in the magazine’s July or August issue. 

According to the website, editorial photographer Mark Seliger shot the basketball star in his New York studio.  Among the outfits Anthony wore for the shoot were a Versace tuxedo and a John Varvatos suit—he added that he hopes to break some barriers for male athletes in fashion.
