Style Icon: Kanye West


Last week, I posted the Best Dressed Men in Hollywood. The list included ten of Hollywood’s finest from Brad Pitt to T.I- it was a very diverse list. As promised I will also be covering each person individually- so let’s start with numero uno- Mr.Cocky himself. . .

1. Kanye West: I know he’s one cocky dude, but whose flyer than Kanye West- ummm, no one. If there were one guy’s style I recommend anyone, who is trying to “step his style up”, copy- it would be Mr. West. He bases his style on mixing retro with modern, very much like the Urban Gent-Style. With his wide variety of threads, he can easily fit in at a hip-hop club or a bow-tie only red carpet affair. I really want to thank Kanye’s ex girlfriend, the stylist, Alexis for enhancing Kanye’s look- men, its always great to have a savvy fashionista girlfriend in your life.

Alexis and Kanye

They were such a haute couple.

So now some of you may ask, “How do I get Kanye’s Look”- well unless you’re balling it will be hard to get his exact look- he wears the designers that he raps about. . . you know designers like Louis Vuitton. . . but it’s easy to get his style. The key is combining prep and hip-hop and maybe a little couture or vintage. . . in layman’s term: combine brands like Lacoste (prep) & Ecco (hip-hop), and don’t be afraid to mix it with a jacket or vest you found at the thrift store (vintage) and some shoes you painted yourself (couture). . .any variation of the looks will give you a Kanye-esque vibe.


“That that that, that don’t kill me, can only make me stronger. . .” Believe it or not that song helped me through a rough situation last year, lol, . . . but that song also made many people want the shutter shades Kanye rocks when performing the hit song. Now-a-days you can find them anywhere, almost all hip-hop/rock or trendy stores carry them. You can also find them online at Shutter Shades Online or you can buy them for around 8 bucks at Urban Boundaries.


The Best Dressed Men in Hollywood

No men’s fashion blog would be complete without a list of the best-dressed men in Hollywood. I based my list off People, Esquire, and my own personal preferences.

There are many guys that shine at award- shows or in videos, but there are only a few that are notable fashion gurus on and off the camera. Many of these guys have completely different styles, but they look good and wear their clothes well:-)

1. Kanye West
2. David Beckham
3. Andre Benjamin
4. Brad Pitt
5. Pharrell Williams
6. George Clooney
7. Johnny Depp
8. Fonzworth Bentley
9. Terrence Howard
10. Clifford “T.I” Harris Jr.
