Between the recent conclusion of Project Runway
's fifth season and this Wednesday's premiere of the new reality show Stylista
on the CW, fashion is all the rage. Finding inspiration from your favorite celebrity or cattily commenting on your friends' fashion faux pas has become hip thanks to this boom of fashion and modeling reality shows.
In that spirit, BuddyTV set out to compile our list of the best fashion accessories on TV, the signature looks that made certain characters stand out. In our preparation, we came to a shocking realization: right now, fashion is all about the men. In the early party of this decade, Carrie Bradshaw and Sex and the City
made every woman crave a pair of Manolo Blahniks. Fashion is often cyclical, and now, it's time for the men to have their moment in the spotlight.
We changed our list to highlight the top 10 male fashion icons. Whether it's a specific article of clothing or a key accessory, men on TV are boldly establishing their own signature looks. They make it work in a way that would make Tim Gunn
proud, and they strut their stuff with more ferocity than Tyra Banks
In compiling this list, we thought about every possible way a man can express his unique fashion sense. For some, it's with hats or eyewear. For others, a specific piece of jewelry is what completes the whole ensemble. These are the guys with very special looks that let them stand out in a crowd and express their individuality.
Check out our list to see if your favorite male fashion icon is here. Do you prefer the brightly colored fashion sense of a certain Gossip Girl
bad boy, or have you decided to buy a pair of horn-rimmed glasses? Would you rather see a man covered in a well-tailored suit or tattoos? Continue through our gallery to see all of our top 10 male fashion icons.
