Marshmello Comes in at #8 of GQ’s Worst Dressed Men of 2017
Oh no, Marshmello! The popular men’s magazine GQ just released their 2017 rendition of the Best and Worst Dressed Men. Among the worst was EDM producer Marshmello, who besides his famous head piece, tends to dress pretty vanilla (literally)–wearing plain white tees at many of his shows.
The decision for Best and Worst Dressed Men is made by both fashion experts, such as Giorgio Armani and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as members of the magazine’s staff. The lists include 10 men for each, and the decisions are taken very seriously by the panel of fashion critics. Topping the list this year for Best Dressed is Matt Smith, the star of the Netflix hit series The Crown, while Kit Harrington of Game of Thrones took #1 for Worst Dressed–so it could be worse for Marshmello.
The GQ list doesn’t give an explanation of the specific fashion faux pas committed, but we can assume the lack of creativity in Marshmello‘s wardrobe is to blame–something he doesn’t lack when it comes to his music.
Other Worst Dressed men this year include YouTube star PewDiePie, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and filmmaker Louis Theroux, proving that money can buy you many things, but not necessarily a good sense of fashion.
Rap artist A$AP Rocky, musician Harry Styles, and actor Jeff Goldblum were among the more fortunate stars, making a good enough impression on the panel to warrant a Best Dressed status in the GQ issue.
As for Marshmello, it’s not his outfit choices that we truly care about (let’s be honest), but we can suggest taking some advice from more fashion-forward EDM artists, such as Tiesto with his cool graphic tees, or David Guetta with his slick leather jacket looks. However, with a potential collaboration in the works with Grammy nominated artist SZA, Marshmello has other things to worry about.
Only time will tell if Marshmello will abandon his snooze-fest wardrobe and have a fashion transformation. For now, we’re just ready for some new music.
