Doja Cat demonstrates her wicked fashion alchemy, Beyoncé brings back the disco trend, Blackpink apply for a full-time gig as “the coolest band on earth” – these artists take sartorial genius to the next level
quote hip hop Legend and fashion trendsetter Slick Rick, “When it comes to style, you either have it or you don’t.” Today, having it is more important than ever. Style and music have never been more closely linked. So we decided to rank the 25 most stylish musicians in the world—from Beyoncé reverting to her ’70s and ’80s renaissance looks, to rapper Dawn’s style in his single “Stupid Cool” continues to evolve the classic hip-hop style, and for Rosalía, the balance of hard and soft (or, as she describes it, “Tomato and Dhakagiving and receiving”) in her Yuan Hai Tour your closet. Embodying style with uniqueness and personality, these musicians tell stories with their clothing, all the while bringing their own identities into every look.
for rolling stoneFor our second annual Most Stylish Musicians list, we’ve rounded up a panel of voters across the worlds of fashion, music and culture. They were asked to pick and rank 20 musicians, with each voter’s own definition of “trendy” determined. Have an issue with our selection?
