GQ Magazine Names Donald Glover World’s Best Dressed Man

Childish Gambino is a tastemaker on a whole other level.

Being diverse and really retro with your outfits seems to be what’s driving today’s fashion trends.

We’ve seen singer, actor and director Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino in various attires from clean-cut suits to the open-shirt, hairy chested look of the 70s.

Glover’s fashion sense was enough to earn the No. 1 spot on GQ’s Top 50 best-dressed men in the world.

A smidgen of chest hair and a boatload of bravado”: Donald Glover tops GQ’s best dressed man of the year list. https://t.co/7CfbC9NSID


The creator of the hit show Atlanta and viral music video “This Is America” video climbed up 17 spots from last year to beat out actor Jeff Goldblum to claim the title of GQ’s fashion king.


GQ called the 35-year-old Emmy Award-winner a “new-wave renaissance man” and said, “his style is superbly ‘wavey’ too, providing all the Seventies-inspired vibes a modern man needs in his wardrobe right now.”

GQ was particularly fond of Gambino’s open-chested attire:

“While his array of cheekily unbuttoned silk shirts and soft, striped V-neck knits over the past year gets an honorable mention, our favorite facet of his personal style has to be his commitment to anything-but-black tuxedos – especially the regal, all-purple Gucci rig he wore to the Emmys in September. Our king.”
