Celebrity Style Update: Kanye West, Zac Efron, Q-Tip, Adam Lambert, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and more

A few recent photos of celebrity style from the past week, month, etc…
George Clooney in Toronta, Canada
Clooney always manages to portray such effortless easy style. If he’s not attending a black tie event you can count on him to leave 1 or 2 buttons open on his shirt to show a little chest hair, after all– it’s a man world.

Zac Efron at the David Letterman Show
in New York City sporting perfectly polished ankle boots.

When it comes to dress shoes most men opt for the lace-up oxford, some go for the slip-on loafer, but if you’re a truly stylish guy and in need of new dress shoes, look into purchasing a pair of dress boots. Robert Wayne carries some of the best styles at reasonable prices.

Everything he wears fits exactly how it is supposed to for his body type– the cut of the suit, the break in his pants, Mr. Efron is definitely leading in style these days.

Both Q-Tip and Kyser look fresh. Kyser keeps it classic with black Adidas shell-toes while Q-Tip sports a pair of Nike Dunks High Premium East Edition


Diddy’s 40th Birthday Party in New York

I may not care for his attitude, but Sean Combs is a mean dresser.
No one does cocktail attire quite like Diddy.

Adam Lambert on CBS’s The Early Show

Believe it or not, I’m loving this look. I don’t think I’m a usual fan of Adam’s style, but the styling on this ensemble, atleast from the waist up, is pretty great. Obviously I’m not saying this look is for everyone, but if you’re going to do goth– do it like this. I think it’s the hair, the placement of the scarf, and the gloves that really bring it all together… hmm, I don’t even mind the metallic finger nail polish.

UPDATE: So after a few request, I found a similarly shaped jacket, it’s now available in our store check it out here.


Question: Where art thou Yeezy?
Answer: In Paris!!!!

The paps finally found our beloved gent, in Paris, doing a little retail therapy at Cavalli and Marney. I’m so glad he’s laying low, chilling, and just generally getting his ish together. Let’s hope he comes back revitalized, humbled, and more creative than ever. And remember Ye’ no more turning hoes into housewives, lol.


Kanye West indulging in retail therapy

Ye’s in mourning… maybe that’s what the all black is about. Both he and Rihanna have been sporting ALOT of black over the past few months– and both of them have been through some pretty traumatic situations. Either way it goes the black looks good on them both, but I’m sure once they’re inwardly happy again we’ll start to see more color in their day to day ensembles. (he’s wearing Acne House VPatch SB shirt,  Martin Margiela regular painted pants, and Hermes crocodile hi-tops)

Kid Cudi and Drake


Pharrell Williams at a Miami Art Basel event

I love how he ONLY rocks BBC jeans, which only makes sense. If you have a clothing line you should wear you own clothes, otherwise it will send a clear message that you’re not passionate about the line and you’re solely doing it for profit. (wearing black Christian Louboutin sneakers from their SS2010 collections)

Pharrell performing on the North American college arena tour. He’s sporting a Billionaire’s Boys Club heart and mind zip hoodie, BBC jeans, and classic New Balances.

I likee Christians’s scarf and Zac’s blazer
A heather grey blazer is a must for men and women
this year, and next, and just in general.

Que from Day 26 at a Gillette Fusion event

Que definitely has the best style in group Day 26,
he loves to rock the hoodie and leather jacket look.

Sooo, this is Pete Wentz

Yea, I didn’t recognize him either when I first saw the photo. I’m loving his new look, seriously, whoever is styling him- keep up the good work.


Pete Wentz
The profile is so sick… the jacket, the boots, the overall swag.


Day 26


Tristan Wilds


Columbus Short at Planet Hollywood promoting movie Armored

Now I hate to do this, because Columbus is a good-looking guy and he’s buddies with one of my close friends, but gentlemen this is a perfect example of how not to dress. Okok, let me back up, there are great components in his outfit– the pea coat, white slight v-neck tee, grey trousers, textured grey scarf, but the fit the FIT is sooo off and he looks sloppy.

… and speaking of Grammys, Maxwell received 6 nominations– very well deserved. What’s the deal with his shirt? Looks to be an upscale re-invention of the “tie-shirt”. Hmmm, it could just be fabric on the placket, but I have a feeling if he buttoned the shirt up it would look like a skinny tie.

That was alot of celebrity style to take in in huh?

The one thing that they all had in common was color– everyone was wearing black or grey with a little blue here and there. But that’s mainly because its winter and blacks, greys, and navys are the most popular colors for wintery clothing.

So whose recent style do you like, dislike, sorta kinda like….

Urban Gent Poll: Whose Style Do You Like Best

The results from the latest Urban Gent Poll are in… this was sort of a mini poll since it didn’t run for that long:

The Question: Whose Style Do You Like Best?

Zac Efron
20 (17%)
Nick Cannon
3 (2%)
Channing Tatum
10 (8%)
Kid Cudi
53 (45%)
John Legend
25 (21%)
Robert Pattinson
5 (4%)
Votes so far: 116

1st place goes to Kid Cudi, 2nd John Lengend, and 3rd Zac Efron.

I’m not surprised at Kid Cudi winning first, the Winter/Fall Fashion Guide has been posted front and center for the past month or so, and he’s posted as my example for Assorted Swank. Plus, alot of Urban Gent readers are big fans of artist like Kid Cudi, Lupe, Pharrell, etc etc. I’ll look into doing a more in-depth Kid Cudi style article later.


Zac Efron at UK premiere of ‘Me and Orson Welles’, Nov 18th

I honestly thought Zac Efron would get 2nd, if not 1st, but he got 3rd. He’s been pretty consistent with his style for the past two years and he constantly updates his looks; sometimes its a big update while other times it’s subtle. Zac’s perfectly polished look from the beginning of 2009 was, well, perfect. And his messy, swept-over hair do from mid-2009 was oookay, not one of my favorites, but I appreciated the update and experimentation. His current look is pretty great as well. Hmmm, I guess when I think of Efron’s changing styles I think of his hair. But besides his hair his attire is always perfect… his jeans fit well, as do his button downs. He and his girlfriend always look flawless on the red carpet.

John Legend always look nice. His suits are usually custom-fitted, he wears trendy bow-ties, and just keeps himself well-groomed (hair, skin, clothing) like an Urban Gent should.

G.I Joes Have Style: Marlon Wayans & Channing Tatum

2 weekends ago I had a chance to see G.I Joe… and the beginning was good, I just wasn’t able to finish it. Not because it wasn’t a great film, but because we went to the drive-in theater and had already watched two movies before then, so we fell asleep towards the beginning-middle of G.I Joe. Nevertheless, I enjoyed what I saw mainly because the stars were just so hot…Marlon Wayans has always been cute to me and he added on some muscle for the role (niiiice) and Channing Tatum, well, (sigh) he’s probably one of the hottest guys on earth- yeah I said it- he’s like the equivalent of… hmmm of a Megan Fox to guys but just hotter. Geeez, I’ve had a crush on him since… I guess since Coach Carter, buuuut I digress, I know you guys don’t want hear all that.

Check out a few pictures of the two (and other GI Joe crew members) at interviews and premieres:

I love Channing’s hair here- edgy yet simple and stylish.
And his facial hair- low and perfectly trimmed.
(being well-groomed is SO important guys)

For some reason the first thing that sticks out
in this picture to me is his nails. Weird?
Yeah perhaps, but that’s one of the first things I notice on a guy.
Marlon’s nails are JUST how Urban Gentleman
should have theirs- clean and short.

Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, and Marlon Wayans

These guys are HILARIOUS
(ps- you KNOW this was Marlon’s idea, darn 7th grade poses)

on another note- I’m really diggin’ the boots, they sort of remind
me of the Jeffery Campbell tattered “war-boots” from last winter.

Lol, I love it.

Gentleman, take a good look at Marlon’s and Channing’s jeans
are you looking? Okay, great.
Now THAT is how your jeans should fit.
It still saddens me when I see guys wearing pants 8x too big
and its getting to be QUITE disturbing to see guys in jeans 8x too small
I really need for you guys to pull a Goldilocks and wear the pair
that fits just right :-)

More of Marlon’s and Channing’s Style:

I’m not too keen on the suit choice, but I think it looks good on Marlon
So this is an example of successfully “doing you”- not everyone
can pull this suit off though.

Sienna Miller and Channing Tatum
I love her dress and I love his jacket

What do you guys think of their style?
Has anyone seen the whole movie? How is it?

Seeing Double: Kanye’s Black Blazer…. and possible Timberland Comeback?

When I first saw Kanye’s picture from the Serpentine Party, I immediately thought about his ensemble from the Vanity Fair Party earlier this year… so I checked the Urban Gentleman Archives and voila- Kanye’s rockin’ the same perfectly fitting shawl collar jacket. And I must say Ye’ I ever so do approve. If you look at the ensemble it looks almost exactly the same- black pants, black on black herringbone blazer w/ the slanted pocket, and solid shirt. Why do I like the fact that it’s a repeat? Well because a repeat is so un-kanye, as he’s admitted he’s innately flashy and always raps about designer duds. So for him to repeat a distinctive jacket at an event, well that’s cool, practical, and it shows that Mr. West is growing up a bit. But I guess the real question is, will he wear it again, when or if he ever gets words of this post- who knows. But nevertheless I’m digging it… his style is progressing quite nicely, now if he could just relax with parading around with the chick that he sung about in “Stronger”… (because Ye’ the time is No longer right, lol).


On another note, he’s been rockin’ the Timbs pretty heavy. And, maybe its just me, but I actually think it’s the appropriate time for a Timberland comeback… I remember rockin them hard as a freshman in high school back around 2002) my boyfriend and I had matching pairs… he played football I was a cheerleader, so we’d wear them with jeans and our varsity jackets- it was cute stuff, lol.

Besides, a few designers had timberland-esque boots in their winter and spring collections (including Dean and Dan Caten of Dsqaured2). So maybe it’s time to dust off your old Timberlands…

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.
