“Um, excuse my throat — I kinda lost my voice at the parade,” said Cruz, as shouts of “Go Giants!” came from a pack of photographers.
The wide receiver, who rode up the Canyon of Heroes in Tuesday’s ticker-tape parade in honor the Super Bowl-winning Giants, appeared reserved and soft-spoken at the opening of Fashion Week, which starts tomorrow and showcases the fall collections of top designers.
“It has been a big week for New York,” announced Peter Levy, SVP and managing director of IMG Fashion, which runs the event. “It’s great to have a huge star like Victor,” Levy said, adding that he hoped to see Cruz sitting front row at a few fashion shows.
“It’s always been my dream to be here,” Cruz replied.
