Kanye West Named GQ’s Most Stylish Man of 2015
It looks like Drake isn’t the only one going “Back to Back” in 2015, as Kanye West has become a two-time champion himself. Yeezy’s wins come from being such a fashionable guy. The 38-year-old rapper was named as the Most Stylish Man Of 2015 by GQ magazine.
This marks the second time West nabbed the fashion title by the bible for high-end menswear (he won it in 2014). The “Bound 2″ rapper took to Twitter to revel in the win and thank the voters who made his victory possible. He tweeted:

West beat out model Lucky Blue Smith, whose luck and occupation did him no favors when pitted against the formidable style icon. The competition was stiff, but the Chicago native came equipped with the ace up his sleeve that is an endorsement by the Kardashians, including his wife, Kim, who posted tweets urging their followers to support West’s campaign.
And after all of the votes were in, which topped out at over one million, West nabbed 520,119 votes in comparison to 445,073 for Lucky Blue.
Regardless of GQ‘s blessings, it would be tough to say that many people had a more eventful year in fashion than Mr. West. From making the biggest splash at New York Fashion Week by debuting his Yeezus line for Adidas, to turning the sneaker game on its ear with his wildly popular Yeezy Boost releases, it’s clear he made an impact in the fashion world.
