Kanye West Voted ‘GQ”s Most Stylish Man of the Year
Rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West has been voted GQ magazine’s Most Stylish Man of 2015. The “Runaway” star topped the end-of-year poll on Tuesday after winning 54 percent of the fan votes in the final round of the 64-man tournament bracket, in which he was pitted against fellow finalist, model Lucky Blue Smith.
West’s other rivals earlier on in the online contest included Jared Leto, Kit Harington, Lewis Hamilton and his hip-hop pal Jay Z. The new dad had a little help in clinching the title, thanks to his wife Kim Kardashian and her family, who encouraged their millions of Twitter fans to log multiple votes for West in the lead up to Tuesday’s deadline. “You can vote unlimited times so keep voting!” Kardashian urged, before adding, “(Sister) Khloe and I must be blocked because we can’t vote anymore, it kicked us out! #LOL.” However, her efforts worked and after Kanye was crowned the winner, she returned to Twitter to thank devotees for their help. “YOU DID IT GUYS!!!!! KANYE WON!!! THANK YOU FOR VOTING! #GQ.” Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, also got in on the fun and celebrated the final results. “Wooooohoooo!!!” she wrote. “Kanye won @GQ’s Most Stylish Man of the Year!! Thank you all for your votes!! #GQ #moststylishman.”
