5 YOUNG MALE CELEBRITIES WHO SEIZED 2015 IN STYLE
Written by Ken Coseto
2015 was the year for Men’s Fashion. Perhaps due to the burgeoning designers who focus on men’s fashion or maybe the gents are simply paying more mind to their appearance. One thing is for certain though; style is always on the minds of young male celebrities. Constantly under flashing lights, we talk you through 5 young celebrities who exude sartorial-swagger and are the epitome of menswear #goals for 2016.
Lucky Blue Smith
Strutting the runway for designers like Tom Ford, Versace and Etro at the tender age of 17, Lucky’s rise to list of top male models was inevitable. With almost 2M followers on Instagram, a few critics may say that he’s just fashion’s current “it” Boy. But his ever-increasing like-count seems to prove otherwise. With his cheeky grin and flirtatious demeanor, his recent in-bed shirtless post had girls (and boys) going gaga.
Lucky found himself at the top of every best-dressed list when he wore a red and black lambskin Dior Homme Jacket paired with a classic belter white tee at the GQ’s Most Stylish Man of 2015 shindig. Out of the studio and off the runway, Lucky is a bit more relaxed opting for or comfy classy pieces such as sweaters, round necks and leather jackets. Constantly surrounded by people in the sartorial-know, Lucky stays on trend, dressed not only in designer threads but high-street brands like Adidas, Topman and H&M.
Once known as the floppy-haired boy, belting out sweet pop melodies while zipped up in his signature purple jacket, Bieber has morphed into someone anyone would swipe right to. The advent of his new image came after Bieber was featured in a Calvin Klein ad. With his peroxide-dyed fallen Mohawk, his new wardrobe consists of Saint Laurent leather jacket and ultra-cool Yeezy Boosts. Fond of mixing high fashion and fast fashion, he’s often captured clad designer duds in the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Gucci and Balmain, while at the same time, wearing GAP, Vans and Topman.
Zayn Malik’s style has definitely come to its own since leaving 1D. His hair color has been undergoing a matrix of transition, from a lime green buzzcut, to platinum blonde and old-lady grey, to his current dirty blonde locks. We see Malik’s style evolving, becoming more edgy. Donning a shapely navy frock coat at a recent Louis Vuitton show, Malik’s favorites include bomber jackets, sleek sneaks and boots, a style more akin to complement his beautiful sleeve of tattoos. Oh and have you seen his new music video for his new single Pillow Talk? Yeah that should shake off any doubts of him becoming the next prince of RnB.
It was only when Nick Jonas released his solo album that the public took notice his style. Stripping himself of his teeny bopper image (and his purity ring), he debuted a military-inspired buzz cut and a taut hot bod. His style is best described as classic, usually snapped in a tight-fitting white tee, leather jacket, skinny jeans or fancy sweatpants and white sneakers combo. For red carpet events, Nick opts for sleek suits in bold colors or magnetic prints. Who says classic can be stylish?
Lauded for his work behind the camera, it’s not unusual to find BJ’s work in the front and center of major spreads. From his meteoric rise from photographer to muse, Pascual’s online and offline presence remains a force in the industry. His style is often documented on his Instagram, posting images of himself sporting uber stylish pieces from Dries Van Noten bombers to black leather Lanvin shoes and Calvin Klein sweaters. But what really sets BJ apart from other style-setters in MNL is his love for local. His favorites include Carl Jan Cruz and Proud Race to Ziggy Savella’s perfectly tailored brick orange suits, printed trousers and kimono shirts.
