Connick's style still in fashion

Crooner Harry Connick Jr. was a presenter at last year's VH1 Fashion Awards, but as he sees it, the invite had everything to do with his model wife and very little to do with his sartorial style.

"They probably invited me this year in hopes that we come together," Connick joked, again referring to the allure of his better half.

This year, Connick will attend again, as co-host, with actress Ashley Judd.

Actually, Connick said in a chat last week, his wife, the former Victoria's Secret model Jill Goodacre, will be on hand. But she will be in the audience, and there's no plan to have them do something together on stage.

There was, however, plenty of competition in the "VH1 Fashion Awards," taped Friday before a star-studded, great-looking crowd at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The show, the music channel's ode to style, design and fashion, with a modicum of music tossed in, will air tonight at 9.

Presenters include the likes of Demi Moore, Jimmy Smits, Kim Delaney, Linda Evangelista, Farrah Fawcett and Sarah Jessica Parker.

The music was supplied by the Rolling Stones, Fiona Apple, Jamiroquai and En Vogue.
