It must be said that men’s mag GQ’s rundown of the 50 most stylish men of the last 50 years is flawless (well almost: ditch those fucking Chuckle Brothers, the murdering Kennedies).
And of those 50, how many are gay? Seven, definitely. Eight if you include Paul Newman… And that’s higher than the 10% it should be…
In amongst those stylish gays are David Hockney (signature glasses and rugby top a definite winner); Hedi Slimane (bringing skinny to a whole new generation); Cary Grant (what is there to say?); Basquiat (hotter in a duffle than Paddington Bear himself); Yves Saint Laurent and Hubert de Givenchy.
We saw it in a rather fascinating article – that also tells you how to ‘get the look’ – here.
