Di Luca readies for catwalk debut

Danilo Di Luca will don the threads of Italian designer Byblos at 11:30 today when he takes to the catwalk as a star model on the closing day of the spring/summer 2008 Fashion Week in Milan. The Italian, whose favourite clothing item is believed to be the Maglia Rosa by Gazzetta Dello Sport, signed a one-off deal with the Versace-inspired designer to appear at today's event.

"The key of this agreement, singular but funny for me, stays in the common denominator - the passion for the modern art," explained Di Luca. "I like Byblos collection because its lively and sprightly spirit, inspired by art and sport. The perfect alliance."
