In Hollywood, it’s usually the women who get praised for their style but these stylish men prove the meanswear can be just as sophisticated and sexy.
Sean “Diddy” Combs
This rapper/designer turned actor and broadway star may be known for his business acumen and celeb filled white parties but he is also known for being one the of best dressed men on the red carpet. Stylish suits or the coolest street wear- Diddy can do it all. His keen eye for style has also brought him much acclaim from notoriously tough fashion critics. He was given the award of Top Menswear Designer by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2004 for his Sean John collection. He also opened a flagship store on New York’s coveted Fifth Avenue.
Another rapper turned actor, T.I. has now made the move into respected producer with three great movies- ATL, Takers, and the upcoming Takers 2. Born Clifford Harris, this entertainer is new to the fashion scene but is already making waves and grabbing lots of female attention in classic, tailored clothing. Not to be left out on the runway, T.I. has also started his own line of street style men’s apparel called Akoo.
This uber famous athlete is probably better known for what he and his wife Victoria wear more than how he does on the field. As the symbol of the word ‘metrosexual’, the always dapper David Beckham is a style icon in his right. The Brit rocks a suit like no other- always poised, always confident. He even pulls off daring, trendy fashion pieces like leather shirts and busy prints with ease. After being featured in ads for Adidas and Calvin Klein, he is now the new face of Armani underwear.
Robert Pattinson, aka every teenage girl’s Twilight dream, is the second Brit on the list and he may be just as famous as the last. Though most girls would tell you that they would rather see him with no clothes at all, he looks pretty hot with his clothes on too. Pattinson seems to love to have fun on the red carpet and is always in a bright colored, slim fitting suit and a skinny tie. As time goes on, expect more daring red carpet looks from Mr. Pattinson.
Shia may not be the first guy you think of when you think of style but if you take a second look, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The Transformers star has worn some very well cut suits on the red carpet, usually sticking to greys and blacks in subtle prints, but what he does best is the total look. He not only wears the perfect suit, he pairs it with the perfect tie, the perfect shoe, and the perfect hair. He delivers the total package time and time again. As Shia moves into more serious rolls as an actor, he seems to deliver more serious, respectable fashion on the red carpet.
Zac Efron has been stylish from the start. Never shy on the red carpet, this star can pull of Cary Grant like elegance one day with a black tuxedo and slick backed hair and Maroon 5 cool the next in a bright red slim cut suit. Far from the days of Highschool Musical, he’s embraced fashion as tightly as teenage girls have embraced him. And when you look like a model, why not?
