5 Guys We Would Let Upgrade Us
When Beyoncé sang about upgrading her man to Audemars Piguet watches and Purple Labels, we all sang along and secretly plotted to upgrade our men’s wardrobes. But women aren’t the only ones with keen eyes for fashion and a burning desire to upgrade the one they love. That got us thinking: What celeb men would we let upgrade us? We racked our brains and came up with tons of eligible candidates, but in the end these five celeb hotties were the only ones we would let upgrade us!
Over the years, Kanye West has gone from college dropout on the come up to a full-fledged fashion icon. Kanye’s upgrade skills are so on point that he took video model Amber Rose from the stripper pole to catwalk-ready in a matter of months. With skills like that (and fashion label name dropping in almost every song), it’s obvious that the Louis Vuitton Don is serious about his upgrading skills. This Chi-town rapper wouldn’t let us walk next to him in anything but the finest.
We know, we know! London native Idris Elba is known more for his chocolatey delicious good looks than his fashion sense, but his style is just as easy on the eyes as he is. Idris has that grown man swag that simply shines through every time you see him in a suit. He’s the type of man that wants his woman sexy but sophisticated, so he’s sure to keep us laced in classics pieces from Chanel, Badgley Mischka and more!
Every man loves to see their woman decked out in her sexiest dress and highest heels. But what every man likes to see even more than is their woman decked out in her sexiest pieces of lingerie; this is where Trey Songz comes in. Sure, we need our everyday wear upgrade, but Trey would be the master at upgrading our most intimate, behind-closed-doors-only fashions. We can tell from his songs that Trey is a sensuous lover so we know that his upgrade would include nothing less than La Perla thongs and Agent Provocateur bustiers. If we’re lucky, maybe he’ll show us how all the neighbors know his name.
Amar'e Stoudemire might be known for his skills on the court, but off the hardwood, the Knicks forward-center has been praised as one of the NBA’s most fashionable players (just ask his good friend and Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour). Amare’s style is the perfect mix of traditional and urban, and judging by short-lived camaraderie with Ciara, he likes his women with a bit more sartorial elegance. In fact, he’s so sure about his eye for ladies' fashion that he teamed up with clothing designer (and gorgeous woman!) Rachel Roy on a sports-inspired collection. Allowing Amar'e upgrade our wardrobe would be a slam dunk! Not only would we be able to have the best of both worlds in terms of fashion, but we’d become trendsetters in the process. Sounds like a championship win to us!
Even the most fabulous of fashionistas needs a break from the confining designer dresses and toe-pinching Louboutins. Nas is a rap legend with money to burn on uptight designer duds, but he prefers his fashion to be more down to earth and close to his hood attire of old. When Nas upgrades us he’ll make sure our dress down wardrobe is full of the latest and hottest urban designers, so that we’re not only comfy but on point!
