Penalty Kicks: Front Row at Y-3

Since Y-3 took inspiration for its its show from the 2010 World Cup, it seemed appropriate that the most unforgettable player of the last World Cup took part.

Since Y-3 took inspiration for its show from the 2010 World Cup, it seemed appropriate that the most unforgettable player of the last World Cup, France’s Zinedine Zidane, took part. At the end of the show, a net dropped down and six female models took feeble shots on goal before Zidane, joined by Yohji Yamamoto, showed them all how it’s done. Applause! Backstage, the retired player (of head-butting notoriety) said he had no plans to get involved in soccer again. Asked to predict the World Cup winner, he gave the safest possible answer: “Je ne sais pas.” Rufus Wainwright and Russell Simmons also dropped by the show, where the models included Madonna’s pal Jesus Luz.
