Top Ten Most Stylish Men

It’s been quiet a few years now that we’ve had an influx of metrosexual men. Some are too obsessive to the point of feminism. But some metros have the right balance of sexiness, chic-ness and masculinity. With that said, I would like to discuss the latter.

Here are my Top Ten Stylish “Hollyweird” Men (not listed in order of influence):

1.     Kanye West:
Yes the man is the poster boy for narcissism and in need of a big piece of humble pie but at the end of the day he sure knows how to put an outfit together. Plus he’s not afraid to set trends (yeah I know you’re thinking why would he be…he’s egotistical Mister West…but nonetheless). The original preppy college dropout has evolved from the Louis Vuitton backpack look to a more edgy sophisticated visage
       2.    Adrien Brody:
The Academy Award winner is the face of Zegna for a reason. He exudes style even while riding a bike. The native of Queens takes a New York approach to international jetsetting adding a sharp street edge (along with his sharp nose!) to tailor suits and fitted jeans by incorporating hats and scarves.

3.     Jude Law
The English actor has been tangled in many scandals regarding his intimate relationships and we can see why the ladies love him; he has the two Ss…Sexy and Stylish. He brought masculinity to scarf wearing. He has a classical English look.

4.     Common
Common always had a savoir-faire approach to fashion, long before rappers put those horrific baggy jeans and oversized jerseys in the inferno. Mixing sweaters with t-shirts or a sophisticated blazer with jeans, the baldhead beau is the representation of mature sexy.

5.     Andre 3000
The avant-garde of the hip-hop community, Andre Benjamin 3000, has never been tied to any trends; he sets them. You see the past, present and future with Andre. One day he looks like a polished shared cropper, the next day he is a dapper Harlem Renaissance man and than he is the future in a poncho and minnetonka boots or wearing jeans shirtless with a scarf and beret.

6.     Scott Disick
The perpetual party bad boy is known for a lot of things controversial but no one can deny his impeccable style. He has a fresh take on dandy, wearing well-tailored suits in striking colors with a touch of preppy in every attire.

7.     Pharell
One phrase: sexy skate boy chic. Pharell has major sex appeal in a subtle way. His signature look is a graffiti t-shirt with fitted jeans. He does the “I just throw this on” look but we all know there is a meticulous process to his a la mode.    

      8.     Lapo Elkann
In his powder blue Ferrari with the custom denim seats, Lapo Elkan, is the creme de la creme of men’s fashion. The heir to the Agnelli and Fiat cars has been featured on many international best-dressed lists.  With a brazen fashion sense, he’s not afraid to wear zebra print loafers or a pink fedora. Check out his new line Italia Independent that features both men’s and women’s pieces.

      9.     David Beckham
Dare I use the term “style icon” to describe the metamorphosing appearance of Mr. David Beckham. From his ever-changing hairstyles, to the immaculate clothing style, Beckham is the poster boy for metrosexuals. He wears a level of confidence that allows him to look good in almost anything

10.    Lebron James 
Yes it might seem a bit premature to list Lebron James in this category and I am still   heartbroken as a native New Yorker in his choice of the Miami heats BUT putting sports aside, he’s developed his own dernier cri. Lately he’s looked crisp and clean in tailored suits, vest paired with printed shirts and perfectly matched glasses.
