The UK edition of GQ Magazine has released their list of the 50 most stylish men in the world and given Drake the number one spot. No duh.
The mag stated that Drake is able to pull off looks that others wouldn’t dare to wear, saying, “With Drake’s latest looks trending away from bright yellow top-to-toe tracksuits and towards customised sports luxe, he’s proving that it’s possible to look cool in an outfit that, in a cheaper guise, might otherwise never leave the sofa.” Drake’s affinity for a variety of designers, including Italian menswear line Stone Island, as well as his own fashion label with OVO merch are also cited as factors in making Drake the most stylish in the world.
Other names that cracked the top 10 for the list included Jared Leto, Benedict Cumberbatch, James Corden, Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne. Fellow musicians Troye Sivan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, A$AP Rocky, and Pharrell were also included in the top 50, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also making the list for the first time, coming in at an impressive #14.
The magazine also included the 10 worst dressed men in the world, a list that featured Adam Sandler, Tyga and Nick Cannon. Enough with the turbans, Nick.
Of course, Drake topping the list comes as no surprise to anyone who has been watching the budding fashionista try new looks over the course of his career. In 2016, Drake showed off a number of fashion-forward outfits. Plus, he made turtlenecks cool pr guys. Give this man a Nobel Peace Prize. Here are a few more examples of his fashion-forward thinking.
