Five Future Menswear Icons in Young HollywoodSunday, May 26, 2013Aaron Reese
There are many reasons we swoon over celebs. Some may drool over the muscled bodies and handsome faces, (and lets be honest I too have these moments), but what really catches my eye are the clothes on these gents. I'm a sucker for a styish guy, and I'd have to say there are quite a few of them in the world of young Hollywood. And while these gents are stars on the rise (some newly cemented in stardom), it wont be long till their rocketed to full star potential. Check out my list of the five best dressed young hollywood males.
5. A$AP Rocky- I'll be real honest with you here, I wasn't a fan of him.at.all. But with time, and the occasional spread for GQ magazine I definitely opened up to the idea of him as a fashion icon. A$AP' is bold and quite creative when it comes to stylish pairings. Sought after by Raf Simmons himself for the collab 1995 line, A$AP has catapulted himself into the world of menswear at a speed that not even Kanye has achieved. He's doing something in hip-hop and menswear, that's not too common. He's simply being himself. So Kudos! And if you haven't already, check out his song, Fashion Killa. It's brilliant.

2. Eddie Redmayne- The Les Mes breakout star makes it a habit of owning the red carpet (Uh oh Gosling!), and we all know how hard that can be for a young gent in Hollywood. If its one thing Redmayne does, it's bring life to the traditional suit and tie. Every red carpet look is something vibrant, original and fitted. Fit is prominent in his look (check his look at this year's Met Gala), whether it's on or off the red carpet and I've not once been disappointed in any of the 30 yr old's stylings. This will be his third year in a row as the face of Burberry campaign alongside Cara Delevigne, not to mention he's graced the covers of W magazine and Esquire. Topping the best dressed list of just about every menswear mag, Eddie has certainly made a name for himself in young Hollywood. He's the ONLY reason I'll even consider watching Les Mes. Yeah, sorry Anne.
Alias- The Modern Man
The Look- Red carpet, vintage, tailored suits, leather jackets, selvage denim, skinny ties, chambray, leather jackets, wingtips.
Brands of Choice- Topman, Dior Homme, Burberry, Reiss, All Saints, Alexander Wang, Belfstaff.
1. Jaden Smith- With arguably the most attractive parents one could have, Jaden practically comes from Hollywood royalty. The 14 year old has already built quite the rep for himself with his street-goth/skater inspired style. He's already been invited front row to shows (along with with whip my hair songstress, little sis, Willow), has had several editorial spreads including his most recent spreads in Wonderland and Teen Vogue magazine, not to mention the unveiling of his own menswear line, MSFtS, an alternative skateboarding lifestyle brand. This kid is the epitome of cool, and a pretty solid actor and rapper. Check him out in his new dystopian summer blockbuster, After-Earth.
Alias- The Cool Kid
The Look- Street goth, skater, luxury street wear, sweatshirts, harem pants, leather, prints, fitted caps, high tops, vans.
