I was skeptical whether or not GQ made an April Fools prank for making Drake be on the cover of their April issue. Drake is not really someone you would be on top of the hip hop fashion totem pole. It’s amazing how the man can sell many records without a look. However, viewing the images from the upcoming Issue for the men’s style magazine, I beg to differ, surprisingly!
The looks were totally undeniable! Creative Director, Jim Moore, has been guiding American men’s sense of style for years has started to make me a believer in the Canadian! Being styled in the classic pieces (double-breasted sport coats), gave the hip hop artist a sartorial look. There were some modern looks as well, which you can find inspiration from the runway to the club and the office.
Whenever Drake steps out, he needs to look like this every time. There will be a lot of debates of individuals who distastefully agree on his cover. We need to realize even some of the most fashionable hip hop artists and/or celebrities has stylists (some 2 or 3) to help with their look. Its not often you see them do it all by themselves. Sure they provide their own input at the end. but the stylist job to help sell their look.
