Russell Westbrook For GQ France

la_star_de_la_nba_russell_westbrook_pose_pour_gq_2658_north_626x

NBA player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder is slaying these fashion shows and publications. Earlier in the year, Westbrook was featured in Vogue Italia. Back in September, I posted photos of him alongside Vogue’s EIC Anna Wintour at the Rag & Bone’s Spring 2014 Show. See the original post here. After seeing the twosome sitting together, some fashion bloggers including myself reported that Westbrook is in the process of being featured in the pages of the US Vogue. I am still sticking to what I reported. 

In the past, New York Knicks player Amar’e Stoudemire sat front row with Anna Wintour at the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2011 Show, and a year later, he appeared in a Vogue spread with European E-A-L (Editor A Large), Hamish BowlesCarmelo Anthony also appeared in Vogue with his wife Lala and their son Kiyan.

Now the fashionable NBA player (Russell Westbrook) is featured in the November issue of GQ France magazine. Below are some excerpts:

This is the only basketball player in the world who is also feared on the field and in the locker room.With its bold and sharp outfits, the playmaker of the Oklahoma City Thunder indeed reign supreme at the press conference after the match. At a time when any American professional player is accompanied by a stylist who chooses his clothes mat, Russell was noted for the safety of its taste, without the help of any professional. Red rimless glasses, floral blouses, closed to the last button, ties, pants pink polo, it dares all and do not crash. The point of being a regular guest at the forefront of the Fashion Week in New York by the Empress of Vogue, Anna Wintour“.

On the ground as on the asphalt, the elegance of gesture goes with flawless attire. The NBA star Russell West control perfectly the rules of the game, showing off the most beautiful sweaters of the season. Demonstration“.

In related Diddy news, he recently revealed to Bloomberg TV that he has plans of becoming the first African-American majority owner of a football team.

I’m more of an owner type of guy,” said Diddy. “I have aspirations to become and will happen – to become the first African-American majority owner. Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it’s time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. So that’s one of my dreams.” The entertainment mogul also revealed that he would not be partaking in anything involving sports management. “That’s not my lane. I stay in my lane”.
