Some of the brightest stars in the NBA, including Houston Rockets all-star guard James Harden and Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons will face off against each other and six other NBA players in a three-round competition to settle it all, once and for all.
The competition? Yep, you guessed it – a fashion show. No, really.
The first-ever NBA fashion show, NBA All-Star Style, is set to take place during all-star weekend on Friday, Feb. 13 and will be televised the following day, Saturday, Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT on TNT.
It will feature a runway competition, consisting of three rounds – dressing for the boardroom, a night out, and attire worn to the game. Each player will team with a stylist and model as they walk the runway. The first round will consist of eight players, with four players advancing to the second round and the top two competing in the finals.
The list of players also includes Sacramento Kings all-star forward DeMarcus Cousins, Golden State Warriors all-star guard Klay Thompson and Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine and will be judged by Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith from TNT’s Inside the NBA, along with designer John Elliott, WNBA star Elena Delle Donne and GQ Style Editor Will Welch, while Shaquille O’Neal serves as the emcee.
IMG models participating in the show include Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman, Rachel Hilbert and Shanina Shaik. Just so you know who to look for, here are the aforementioned models.
