Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz modelled at New York Fashion Week earlier this week.

The bassist made his debut on the catwalk during a show at the much-publicised fashion festival on Monday, appearing for designer Philipp Plein’s marquee event.

Wentz joined fellow musicians-turned-models Desiigner, Young Thug and Fetty Wap on the catwalk, in an event that Plein termed as ‘Make New York Fashion Week Great Again’ – referring to President Donald Trump‘s victorious campaign slogan.

Wentz sat down with NME late last year around the release of Fall Out Boy’s live concert film, Boys Of Zummer Tour: Live In Chicago.

Wentz agreed that the Chicago show had completed the band’s comeback, saying: “We thought we’d be able to come back and play clubs and theatres, so to be able to come back and play a big outside show was pretty cool, especially in our hometown. It felt like the culmination of a long process.

“To play in front of 25,000 people in your hometown, it’s an intense feeling. We were playing in front of a lot of kids that didn’t know us, about half the crowd were far more familiar with Wiz [Khalifa], so we went out and tried to throw a knockout.”

Fall Out Boy last released an album, ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’, in January 2015.
