Fashion News Roundup: Tim Tebow Could Be Coming to a Front Row Near You, Proenza Schouler to Open NYC Store, and Tyson Beckford Forgets to Check His Ego

NYC PR Reps Weigh in on Tim Tebow: New NY Jets Quarterback and former Florida Gator star Tim Tebow (Ed. note: I'm a proud member of the Gator Nation!) has become NYC’s hottest commodity. The openly Christian sports star has certainly seen his fair share of media attention, and PR guru Lizzie Grubman seems to think he belongs on red carpets – the Met Ball, even – and front rows. As with his athletic abilities, however, his NYC presence is not without controversy; Kelly Cutrone told The Times she doesn’t see Anna Wintour chasing after Tebow anytime soon. {New York Times} Proenza Schouler Plans Expansion: The beloved boys at Proenza Schouler are quickly rising to the top of American fashion with no signs of slowing down. First on the agenda: their first ever boutique in New York City, on Madison Avenue no less, where construction has just begun. "For us, it's weird to go to stores and see a watered-down version of the collection," says designer Lazaro Hernandez about seeing their collections split up by buyers. {LA Times} Tyson Beckford's Ego is Showing: Remember Tyson Beckford, World's First Male Supermodel? Well, Tyson does. Apparently, Tyson is to thank for girlfriend Shanina Shaik's career. "When I found her she was a regular girl. I helped place her with the right people, get her teeth cleaned, her body toned up," Tyson claims. He also says he would give up sex before giving up racing. Yikes. {Telegraph}

While PETA said the flour bomber acted alone, they are now saying that they will pay for the perp's legal fees if she needs them. {Celebuzz}
