Move over, Tyson Beckford. There's a new male model turning heads at New York Fashion Week.

Spurs legend David Robinson used his tall frame to model looks during a NYFW show on Wednesday. The show was made up of athletes and celebrities and benefited The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which uses "the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage."

Instagram users shared videos of Robinson wearing a formal suit as well as a relaxed outfit with a striped shirt and a sweater tied around his waist.

And because he's a nice guy, he posed for photos with fans at the show.
