Weebles wobble . . . and so do male models

Models stand like sentries at the DKNY Men

Just a few hours into the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and we already have a casualty — and no, it’s not a Marchesa model (they usually drop like flies — at least one per show — perched on their ridiculously high heels).

Nope, this time it was a dude! The Centurion-style soldiers at the DKNY Men's presentation last night on Fashion Week Eve stood rigidly at attention — and this must’ve taken some energy, because one poor model about halfway through the event started to wobble…wuh…wuh-wuh-wobble…then his knees buckled and he would’ve pitched forward onto the floor if two of his buddies hadn’t noticed, broken formation and caught the poor bloke. (They quickly ushered him out to get some much-needed air.)

As for the clothes? Well, stay tuned — our menswear feature runs Monday, Feb. 27.
