Doja Cat flexed her keen sense of fashion alchemy, Harry Styles remade glam-rock history in her image, and Blackpink applied for a full-time gig as “the coolest band on the planet.” ” – here are artists who took sartorial genius to a new level
To quote hip-hop legend and fashion trendsetter Slick Rick, “When it comes to style, you either have it or you don’t.” These days, “having it” matters more than ever; style and music have never been so inextricably linked. So we decided to rank the 25 most stylish musicians in the world – from Beyoncé bringing back 70s and 80s looks during the Renaissance era, to rapper Dawn continuing to evolve classic hip-hop silhouettes in her single ” Stupid Cool”. to Rosalía balancing soft and hard (or as she describes it, “give and takegive and receive”) in it Motomami tour cabinet. These musicians embodied the style with distinction and personality, telling stories with clothes while weaving their own identities into each look.
For rolling stoneFrom the second annual list of the most stylish musicians, we have selected a panel of voters from the worlds of fashion, music and culture. They were asked to choose and rank 20 musicians, with the definition of “stylish” up to each voter. Do you disagree with our picks? Email email@example.com to express your grievances.
