Glover named best-dressed man
GQ lauds style of rapper and Atlanta creator
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.
Donald Glover arrives at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 10, in Los Angeles. GQ has named Glover the best-dressed man of 2019.
