Collections, schmollections. Who cares about the clothes when there's hot cops patrolling the tents at Lincoln Center? DNAinfo has made an astute observation by pointing out that the police officers at Fashion Week are pretty good looking this season. They report: "The well primped cops has led many to believe the department has adopted a policy of assigning stylish officers to strut their stuff at the event."
A veteran fashion photographer—who chose to keep his name out of the gawking—said, "They [the NYPD] do this every year. They put the good-looking ones near the front of the tent." So the overall consensus seems to be yes, these are attractive cops. Another fashion photographer, James Tawfik, confirms with a "hell to the yes."
For a group shot of some of NYPD's finest finest, head on over to the article, where you can have another look at Officer Jones of the 20th Precinct, above, and his "well-defined arms." Also included: Officer Leonardo who's "showing off good bone structure," "girl-next-door" Officer Ferrara, and Officer Toumanidis, "who bears a resemblance to baseball star Derek Jeter."
