Probably not. But GQ has gotta sell magazines, so they just declared that he is.
Just how did they come to this conclusion?
“This is not about the celebrities who spend the most cash on designer clothes or hire the best stylists. Instead, we were looking for guys who carry themselves through the world with confidence and originality,” GQ writes.
But if there was a list of who spends the most cash on designer clothes or who hires the best stylists, Kanye would top that one, too.
Kim Kardashian’s husband is joined by a list of predictable gents who are, more or less, internationally beloved both in general and for their swag (Pharrell, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, A$AP Rocky, Harry Styles, Brad Pitt, Jay-Z etc.), a handful of stylish athletes (LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Christiano Ronaldo – it is GQ after all) a single spectacular wildcard (Jeff Goldblum), one man who apparently owns an absurd collection of tibetan robes (John Mayer), and one man who isn’t even a man yet (Jaden Smith).
Don’t get me wrong, Kanye undoubtedly carries himself with more confidence than any man on earth, but selecting a fellow drowning in custom Balmain and Givenchy seems plain lazy. Who do you think is the most stylish man alive?
