Mi hermano, "Big Willie."
Why He's A Style Icon
Although most well known as an actor and rapper as well as a film, television and music producer, Will Smith could easily add style guru to his impressive resume. Whether he’s at a film premiere or just out and about with his family, the man always manages to look incredible. Indeed, it may be because his style is so effortless that he is one of Hollywood’s most stylish men. That, plus the fact that he seems to have understood the most fundamental style rule: Create a style that defines you. Even in his younger days as the Fresh Prince, Will Smith followed this principle, positioning himself as a funky, laid-back guy by donning a baseball cap sideways and mismatching graphic print shirts with multicolored neon shorts and jackets worn inside out.
Once he grew up and moved away from these wacky stylings, the multitalented star adopted a more sophisticated and classy approach to dressing.As the world’s biggest movie star, he plays the part, frequently suiting up for his premieres in sleek dark suits that show off his toned, lean body as well as adding a key piece or two of high-end jewelry. What keeps the star’s red-carpet look from getting boring, however, is that he’s not afraid to wear patterns and color.
In his downtime, you’ll catch Will Smith sporting sunglasses, a variety of hats, leather jackets, fitted V-neck shirts and sweaters, and one of his favorite combinations -- jeans with a funky jacket or blazer.
