LeBron: Style icon?

Sports and fashion collide!

Who's on the cover of the April 2008 Vogue? NBA star LeBron James with model Gisele Bundchen. LeBron is only the third man in Vogue's 116-year history to grace the cover (Richard Gere in 1992 and George Clooney in 2000).

LeBron makes an appearance in the March 24 issue of ESPN the Magazine, celebrating the mag's 10th anniversary. Sports celebs (including Dale Earnhardt Jr.) are decked out in designer gear, posing with a hat featuring a jewel-encrusted Lorraine Schwartz logo.

I was ready to be indignant at the lack of female representation, then I saw the Williams sisters -- Venus in Emanuel Ungaro, Serena in Donna Karan. Who are your other favorite stylish athletes?
