NBA player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder displays his modeling skills in his latest photo shoot for underwear company Kings and Jaxs. In the photo spread, the “fashion killa” baller modeled various boxer briefs from the Los Angeles-based brand.

The collection features bogey, checkers, grand prix, gunner, poker face, professional and sable designs. See more here!

Westbrook is serious about pursuing his fashion and modeling dreams. Last month, he was featured in a spread for Vogue magazine’s November 2013 issue with CFDA 2013 Fashion Fund Finalist and accessory designer Jason Jones. I recently posted his feature in the November 2013 issue of GQ France magazine (see the original post here) and earlier in the year, he was featured in Vogue Italia.

Russell Westbrook’s Fashion Spread For Vogue Magazine With CFDA 2013 Fashion Fund Finalist Jason Jones

cvff-finalists-2013-01_181242125628

NBA player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder continues to style in these fashion publications. Last week, I posted his feature in the November 2013 issue of GQ France magazine (see the original post here) and earlier in the year, he was featured in Vogue Italia. Now the self-proclaimed fashion king is featured in a photo spread for Vogue magazine November 2013 issue with CFDA 2013 Fashion Fund Finalist and accessory designer Jason Jones. 

In the fashion spread, Westbrook models a gold belt with the matching Medicine Man Pumpkin Duffle from Jones Parabellum collection. Below is an excerpt:

Having essentially grown up in his father’s antiques store in L.A., accessories designer Jason Jones, 42 (shown here, right, with Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook), learned early on the values of a kind of burnished quality. Parabellum, started seven years ago with business partner Mike Feldman, is Jones’s endeavor to reclaim that standard. His bags and leather goods are all cut from the sturdy hides of American bison, with each characterized by a deeply individual texture (many of Jones’s favorites feature scarred-over gore wounds) and layered with five or six different shades of dye. Fastenings and buckles are molded in technical ceramic developed by NASA, adding a futuristic component to otherwise old-school techniques. “American craftsmanship is artisanal, but in a hammer-and-nails sort of way; it’s crude,” says Jones, who is of Japanese and Hopi Indian descent. “We wanted to bring a Bottega level of quality.

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“.

NYFW: The NBA Fashion King ‘Russell Westbrook’ & Anna Wintour Attends The Rag & Bones Fashion Show

russrussnyfw1

Anna Wintour and Russell Westbrook 

NBA player Russell Westbrook (the“NBA Fashion King”) made another fashion statement at last night’s Rag & Bone’s Spring 2014 Show. He sat front row with Vogue’s EIC Anna Wintour. Does this means that he is in the process of being featured in the pages of US Vogue? Earlier in the year, Westbrook was featured in Vogue Italia.

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 Bowles. Carmelo Anthony also appeared in Vogue with his wife Lala and their son Kiyan.

Honestly, if Westbrook is closer to being featured in the pages of US Vogue this would be a great look. He’s very fashionable in his own way. He has a style that I never saw before. I would describe his style as street blended with a boardroom meeting style. At last night’s presentation, Westbrook wore a black leather vest layered over a blue buttoned down shirt with fitted trouser pants rolled up at the ankle and black boots.

Fashion is all about taking risks and Westbrook sure did take a risk when he walked the blue carpet in this look. He ablaze social sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram when people noticed his outfit. Fellas, would you ever wear Westbrook’s ensemble? Ladies, do you like this look and would you allow your man to wear it?

russruss1

NBA player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder uploaded a new picture to his Instagram account. The three-time All-Star point guard styled in a $54 Urban Outfitters ‘Lazy Oaf Pattern Sleeve Crew Sweatshirt’ paired with denim jeans and red sneakers. His outfit was accessorized with sunglasses and an YSL logo belt. This sweater is pretty cool. I like the vibrant raglan pattern sleeves. This is a dope piece to wear in the Spring.

Russell Westbrook Gets Stylish In Designers For Paper Magazine

bps_russelwestbrook  

NBA players Russell Westbrook who currently plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder gets stylish in designers for Paper magazine. The three-time All-Star point guard styled in a Gucci jacket and Lacoste pants which he accessorized with a Hermes belt, Oliver People glasses and a Rolex watch. Westbrook has an obsession with high-end fashion and he is often spotted sitting front row at New York Fashion Week. Over the past few months, I realized that Westbrook is very flamboyant with all his bright colors, prints and patterns. Below are some excerpts:

“Russell Westbrook is an aggressive player on the court. The starting point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder is known for hitting acrobatic layups and unblockable pull-up jump shots. But Westbrook made his riskiest play last year at a postgame press conference, where he wore a pair of fire-truck red full frames and a Lacoste shirt covered in antique fishing lures. Never mind that the young Thunder team had just demolished the Lakers — where’d he get that shirt?

Westbrook’s love of patterns goes back to childhood–he remembers posing for a middle school portrait in a Platinum FUBU shirt with an all-over Fat Albert print. Though he visits the malls in Oklahoma City, he mostly trolls websites for ideas. ‘Online shopping is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.‘”
