I’m writing this post from my phone… Since I won’t be able to get back to my computer anytime soon. I started a “Best of 2008″ post, but I won’t be able to finish it before 12. So I just wanted to make a quick unedited list of what I thought was the best styles and stuff in 2008.
Skinny ties. There was nothing more refreshing than seeing guys hitting the red carpet in a skinny tie. Zac Efron is one of the best examples of a star that who rocked this trend very well.
Damn, this is such a hard one, but ummm let’s see. Ralph? Sean? Marc? Thom?…. I feel like DSquared did a pretty bang up job in 2008, but really guys this is a hard one, hmmm for the sake of giving you one answer I’ll say Marc Jacobs- since he basically designs like 3 lines- Marc by Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton… I just feel like that’s such a cliche’ response. So I’m open to your opinions on this one…
Best New Designer:
Why Bejamin Bixby of course. I’m sorry, but no one ever quite does it like Andre 3000. I am confident in his ability to continue to create classically stylish clothing.If he keeps it up and pushes a little harder, he should be designer of the year in a few years.
Best Dressed Athlete:
David Beckham. I don’t even have to expound on this because its so obvious.
Best Dressed Young Star:
Chris Brown. C-Breezy is a young stylish guy and I’ll just leave it at that.
Urban Prep. This style is the signature Urban Gentleman look… The modern man must learn to mix the classics with modern trends and following this look is an easy way to get there.
Best Dressed Male All Around
… well from the looks of the survey on the top left section of the site– Kanye West still seems to dominate. And I agree, he’s one stylish dude.
Best Moment in 2008:
Barack Obama becoming President… November 4th 2008 will forever be one of the best days of my life.
Person of The Year:
C’mon that’s an easy one. Barack Obama. America and this world just won’t be the same. He gives hopes to so many people, and… well, you guys know the deal.
Which stars you liked and didn’t like, what styles you liked and didn’t like, etc.
HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! Be safe tonight and don’t drink and drive.
Would you rock it?
Photos of President Elect Barack Obama from Time Magazine... he was spotted by an up and coming photographer in his 20s and did an impromptu photoshoot. My goodness this dude simply gets cooler by the hour- I don’t think there’s ever been a President this flyy.
I think 2009 is gonna be the year of the bow-tie, seriously… it’s like thats the only option.
This is one of the looks for 2009, one of my looks anyway, that I haven’t really seen any stars rock until now- I call it monochromatic (I may come up with a better name later), but I’ll expound upon it more in January.
2. Blazers/Sport Coats
3. Leather jacket
4. (if you’re a business man) slacks and dress-shirts
