The Dallas Mavericks may have snatched another NBA championship away from Dwyane Wade, but they will never take away his reign as the league's leading style MVP. The fashion-forward guard is in Italy for Milan Fashion Week, taking in the men's shows by Versace, DSquared2, and Armani. Maybe he's scouting new postgame press conference outfits for next season? [Updated: Now with pictures of Wade with Donatella Versace!]
While LeBron James has kept a low public profile since the finals loss, Wade has decided it's time to get on with things and flew to Milan for the fashion shows. Apparently he showed up and randomly ran into Carmello Anthony before heading off to the Versace show, where he sat in the front row alongside the likes of Hollywood pretty boys Darren Criss and Chace Crawford.
He then sat next to George Clooney's girlfriend at the DSquared2 show before heading off to Armani and Gucci.
"Coach Riley would be proud," he noted on Twitter after attending Armani.
We wonder what kind of looks Wade will bring home. Perhaps this silk, eye-melting print pajama getup or this latex v-neck and leather man-skort from Versace? How about this mesh tank and briefs or pink-pantsed sailor suit from DSquared2? Perhaps a nice smoke-screen suit from Armani?

Ever conscious of his fan base, though, Wade wants everyone to know that just because he's attending fancy fashion shows and hobnobbing with Donatella Versace doesn't mean he's taking the finals loss lightly.
Reads his Twitter feed: "2 all the Heat & My supporters..I just wnt yall 2 know I'm not ovr R loss... it still burns inside everyday..but U have 2 move on 2 the nxt day."
Update: We just got some pictures in the mail.
