Say what you want about Kanye, but one thing we know about the man is he’s pretty serious when it comes to fashion. From his days of ransacking Kim Kardashian‘s closet and revamping her wardrobe, to his rants on not being respected in the fashion-realm, ‘Ye received one men’s magazine, top honor of the year.
Kanye West wins Most Stylish Man of 2014 in GQ, beating out chocolate-British extraordinaire, Idris Elba in a style showdown determined by the magazine’s readers and fans. He also had a full-fashion spread and interview with the mag, covering their August 2014 issue. From GQ’s website announcing the winner on Christmas Eve:
“Since he burst onto the scene in pink polo shirts and Louis Vuitton backpacks over a decade ago, West has shifted the landscape of men’s fashion with his forward-thinking style. 2014 was no different. From bomber jackets to Chelsea boots to over-sized coats, Kanye helped define what this year meant to men in terms of the things they wear, and we think his place as champion in this tournament was earned.”
Kanye’s definitely come a long fashion way. Check out some of Yeezy’s best looks of the year and see if the fans got it right.
