Rumors flew in anticipation of today’s Versace men’s show that hotties Chace Crawford and Darren Criss would be WALKING and maybe, just maybe, modeling UNDERWEAR!!! Ajakfhdlkagjfhdjffffffff *over-heating and minor stress-induced stroke* Alas, our girlish dreams were squashed when we learned the boys would just be sitting by the runway, observing from the front row. But hope was not lost because the ever-generous eye candy gods bestowed upon us even more boys to ogle alongside Chace and Darren: Ryan Kwanten, Zachary Quinto, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony.

Attractive men who care enough about fashion to travel across the pond for it?! *mega swoon* Our weak little hearts almost couldn’t contain all of the joy mounting within them. How prettily they sat all in a row. Smiling, laughing in each other’s company. Wearing suits of the finest weaves and cuts, and their every hair expertly groomed. It’s the kind of stuff every girl dreams of (and a lot of publicists, too). Blue, black, grey, and white seemed to be the unwritten color palette code for the man-crew, though Darren may have broken it a little wearing those neon pink socks. *sigh* When we were finally able to tear our eyes away from the celeb smorgasbord, Donatella’s collection was breathtaking: a smattering of throwback prints, tropical hues, easy tailoring and buttery leather details. But wait. Pump the brakes here for a sec… We looked at the front row. Then back at the runway. Then back at the front row. Did we really believe these guys would ACTUALLY wear this stuff?

It’s a little hard to say. While we’d love to envision Dwyane or Carmelo showing up at a postgame press conference in this fuschia deep-vee number, still dewy from the court, the chances of that happening IRL are slim to none. I mean, I don’t even think Blaine or Nate Archibald would be written rocking a piece as loud as those yellow printed pants on Glee or Gossip Girl. And the one blouse-wearing man who this all does seem fodder for was mysteriously absent: the one and only Kanye West. We don’t know about y’all, but these buckled pants just scream “YEEZY” to us. The sandals and socks look on the other hand? That’ll have to grow on us for a while. Maybe if Ryan sports it on the next season of True Blood we MIGHT consider it a good move, but we make no guarantees.
