For years, Kanye West has been desperate to truly break into the fashion industry and be respected by legendary designers. If you’ve seen his clothing line at New York Fashion Week, you could easily question how someone who claims to have a passion for fashion would produce tattered shirts, sweatpants and coats.
Despite critics negative reviews of his clothing line, Kanye optimistically told Vanity Fair, “I was so happy to just show so many sweatshirts. It’s as simple as that. I think sweatshirts are the way of the future…Sweatshirts are f**king important.”
(Lol, how can you not love this guy?)
Anyway, since most people don’t exactly consider sweatshirts “high fashion,” we definitely questioned how GQ, one of the most elite mens’ fashion and lifestyle publications, would name Kanye as their “Most Stylish Man of 2015”.
Well Sway, we have an answer! The Kardashians used their social media influence to get their millions of followers to vote for Kanye.
According to GQ, the rapper may have lost the title to 17-year-old model Lucky Blue Smith when “…tweets from Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and even Kris Jenner spiked the number of votes cast in West’s direction.”
“And in the end, there were a lot of votes; nearly one million cast in twenty-four hours. The final tally: 520,119 votes for Kanye, 445,073 for Lucky Blue.”
Remember that episode of “Scandal” when we find out that Olivia and her crew were responsible for rigging the presidential election? Well guess what the Kardashian influence did for Kanye? We doubt his “House of Hobo” aka Yeezy clothing line would have won without their help.
Check out some photos of Kanye’s best outfits as well as pics from his clothing line. Take our poll below and let us know if Yeezy is deserving of the “Most Stylish” honor?
