GQ is entering the market of sexiest/most fashionable compilations with its very first Most Stylish Men Alive list. The magazine hand-picked 20 men who know the fashion rules and have made a style statement all their own. Pharrell Williams and Kanye West appear on the list, and we can’t say we’re surprised. While West’s own foray into the fashion industry has been met with negative criticisms, you can’t deny that he can piece together an outfit that will get everyone talking. And it’s clear that fashion is just a giant game to Williams, who’s had better success with his clothing lines and collaborations, in addition to evolving his funky style.
Other male style icons on the list include A$AP Rocky, Jaden Smith, Russell Westbrook, Jay Z, soccer star Mario Balotelli and LeBron James, who answered a few questions on his layering techniques and the importance of properly fitting clothes.
Hundreds of celebrities were appraised for GQ’s 2015 list, but its editors didn’t turn to red carpet events, in which stylists would be obviously employed to make each star shine bright. Instead, they looked through thousands of street style photos to see each candidate in his element.
