Today GQ announced its July issue, naming the 20 most stylish men alive. This special edition magazine comes covered by the likely candidates of Kanye West (who we just discovered will be gracing the latest issue of Vogue Japan with family and crew), Pharrell Williams and Ryan Gosling, and the maybe-not-so-likely JAY Z, Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper. In regards to its judging criteria, the Condé Nast imprint said in a press release:
GQ analyzed the nominees not based on what they wore to events and red carpets, but based on something much real-er: Their street style. The selection process was scientific. Hundreds of candidates considered. Thousands of street photos analyzed. GQ looked for guys who carry themselves with confidence and originality and whose moves we most want to steal.
The list went on to include: Jeff Goldblum, Jared Leto, LeBron James, A$AP Rocky, Harry Styles, Daniel Craig, Cristiano Ronaldo, Russell Westbrook, John Mayer, Jaden Smith, David Beckham, Mark Ronson, Mario Balotelli and Eddie Redmayne.
With the July issue of GQ slated to hit newsstands in New York and LA on June 23 and nationally June 30, let us know what you think about the above group. Who got snubbed? Is Goldblum the new Kanye? What’s an Eddie Redmayne?
