Glover named best-dressed man

GQ lauds style of rap­per and Atlanta cre­ator

The Sault Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Don­ald Glover has been crowned GQ’s best-dressed man of 2019.

The ac­co­lade tops off a bumper year for the multi-tal­ented star; his hit FX se­ries Atlanta took home four Em­mys ear­lier this year, and the video for Glover’s chart dom­i­nat­ing track This Is Amer­ica, as rap al­ter ego Child­ish Gam­bino, racked up more than 50 mil­lion views on YouTube in just four days.

He’s now been lauded for his style, with editors at GQ mov­ing him from num­ber 18 to the top spot on this year’s count­down.

“In short, Don­ald Glover is a newwave re­nais­sance man — and his style is su­perbly ‘wavey’ too, pro­vid­ing all the ‘70s in­spired vibes a mod­ern man needs in his wardrobe right now,” editors wrote.

“While his ar­ray of cheek­ily un­but­toned silk shirts and soft, striped V-neck knits over the past year get honourable men­tion, our favourite facet of his per­sonal style has to be his com­mit­ment to any­thing-but-black tuxe­dos — es­pe­cially the regal, all-pur­ple Gucci rig he wore to the Em­mys in Septem­ber. Our king.”

Kim Jones, cre­ative di­rec­tor of Dior Homme, also heaped praise on the star.

“On screen and in per­son, Don­ald Glover wears his clothes with charisma and style,” Jones said.

Just be­hind Glover in sec­ond place is GQ favourite Jeff Gold­blum, fol­lowed by new en­try Tim­o­thée Cha­la­met at num­ber three, Travis Scott and Richard Mad­den.

The Prince of Wales, David Beck­ham, John Leg­end, Harry Styles and Skepta round out the top 10, while A$AP Rocky, Post Malone and Luke Evans are among the names to make the cut of 50 best-dressed men.
