Cuz he slays…
Russell Westbrook has announced he will be the cover model for Sports Illustrated’s “Fashionable 50” issue. The Oklahoma City Thunder player has consistently pushed boundaries in his wardrobe choices and even ventured out to create his own line. So it’s only right that he grace the sports mag’s fashion cover, right?
“My style changes throughout the year so even for me, it’s hard to describe it. I get inspiration from a lot of things. For basketball we travel a lot and I’m able to visit hotels and see different fabrics and art on the walls. I also get inspiration from women’s wear. It’s very interesting to see how the clothes are made and how they mix and match different pieces,” Westbrook told SI. “A lot of people may like to wear nice clothes, but some do not really understand where fashion comes from. I took the time to do my research and learn about the fashion world before I was able to get in to it. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley to pick their brains about the origins of fashion and how it all began. Now, I have my own brand with Barney’s and True Religion. I’ve been able to create this space for myself as a designer while still playing basketball.”
In addition to Westbrook, the best dressed athletes in sports issue features LeBron James, Victor Cruz, Serena Williams, Dwyane Wade and many more. The “Fashionable 50” issue of Sports Illustrated hits stands April 18th.
