DATELINE: La Dolce Vita
Duke & Duchess of Foxboro Smooching like Marcello & Anita
The ashes and embers of the late Aaron Hernandez from cremation have not even cooled off for Tom’s dead pal and occasional murderer.
Yet, Tom Brady is running up and down the grand staircase at the Met Gala, dressed in a nattily Tom Ford designed dinner jacket with matching bowtie.
Brady is single-handedly bringing back the concept of metrosexuality. As for Hernandez, let the dead bury the dead.
Together with his wife Giselle Bundchen, the New England Patriot power couple appears like a New York power couple, not our suburban couple from Foxboro, Glendale, or Brookline. You’d almost think Tom played for the Giants.
Staying at their Manhattan co-op apartment, they fit right into the New York art scene. Tom and Gisele can play the Duke and Duchess of Windsor until they’re in their 70s.
Why mingle with the hoi polloi like Julian Edelman and Gronk when you can hobnob with the swells at the Met?
Indeed, the mighty Brady couple are playing together like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, over a decade younger than the Boston power couple. Of course, pretension in the society pages is a great deal more fun than eating buffalo wings at the Super Bowl.
Tom and Gisele are posing like Young Love for the adoring fans and cameras. You almost have to ignore the onset of middle-age when they show up.
We almost felt like they were turning the clock back to the 1950s single-handedly. Where is Federico Fellini when you need him? We expect Tom and Gisele to stroll fully clothed into the Fountain of Trevi in Rome as their next publicity stunt.
