Richard Johnson - Page Six - May 27, 2008 -- NEW York Ranger Sean Avery spent last week saturated in the world of couture. "I wanted to immerse myself in fashion," Avery told Women's Wear Daily. "I couldn't think of a better place to do it than Vogue." Avery - who has dated the likes of Elisha Cuthbert, Mary-Kate Olsen, Rachel Hunter and Charlotte Ronson - started his internship last Monday, and presented a FiFi Award (from the Fragrance Foundation) to Vera Wang the next night at the Park Avenue Armory. WWD previously reported he would attend the couture shows in Europe next month with Vogue editrix in chief Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, Hamish Bowles and Sally Singer. There is also speculation Avery will appear like LeBron James on the cover of Vogue, or like Roger Federer on the cover of Men's Vogue. The special treatment won't be reflected in his paychecks, however. Vogue reps were firm in stating he'll be paid the same minimum-wage as the other interns.
