Male celebrity fashion is evolving faster than ever before, as celebrities designing their own collections have become successful business ventures.
When it comes to fashion and style ranks, the men are competing against the women better and better as the seasons go by. Some may say they get it easy as how much can a person go wrong wearing a tuxedo. However contemporary male celebrities have showcased their individual style through accessorizing and customizing pieces, proving their worth on the red carpet.
Male Celebrity Fashion and Styles
David Beckham, George Clooney, Mario Lopez, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Justin Timberlake are names and faces that appear year after year on the “Best Dressed” lists, whether it be for dressed-up tuxedo looks or casual street style.
All these men have differing styles and have proven themselves as more than fashion horses as they let their individuality shine through.
Some have natural talent, others evolve their style from roles they have been playing and some have taken their styling and fashion knowledge to the next level by designing their own fashion collections.
Justin Timberlake Creates New Denim Brand
Justin Timberlake and his business partner Trace Ayala launched a denim and lifestyle brand called William Rast in 2005, both for men and women. Inspired by a “new America,” the brand consists of tailored pieces reminiscent of the Rat Pack-era as well as more contemporary styles. Woven shirts, flannel plaid, and of course strong denim pieces all work their way into the collection for men. The women’s wear collection balances girly with tomboy favorites, basing the silhouette on a woman’s body shape but with men’s tailoring methods the collection has become a quick success.
Male celebrities spotted out and about wearing the William Rast brand include David Spade, Kellan Lutz and Brad Paisley.
Selling in boutiques and high-end department stores across the United States William Rast profits have been rising season after season.
“I don’t want to be Mr. Sexy Back forever,” explains Timberlake on his evolution into the fashion business.
GQ: Male Style Maker
William Rast has also become a firm favorite with male style magazine GQ, highlighting pieces from the collection in fashion shoots as well as asking Justin Timberlake to appear on the cover countless times.
Justin Timberlake decided to repay the favor by asking to incorporate GQ into his new movie Friends With Benefits. Timberlake plays an art director in the movie that ends up working at the Manhattan based magazine GQ.
Proving to be more than just a one trick pony Timberlake is building a brand that includes more than just his musical talents.
However Justin Timberlake does admit to having made fashion mistakes in the past,
“The cornrows I wore with ‘N Sync were pretty bad… Britney and I wore matching denim outfits to the 2001 American Music Awards, yeah another bad choice. I’d probably pay good money to get some of those pictures off the Internet.”
