Russell Westbrook Talks Fashion with Vogue Italia

Russell Westbrook

Running his full offense in the fashion court, Russell Westbrook has been featured on different fashion sites and scored a couple of spreads in the glossy pages of fashion magazines.

This time, the OKC point guard appears in the February issue of Vogue Italia. L’UOMO Vogue caught up with Russell to talk about his impeccable style. When asked about his love for fashion, the NBA All-Star confessed to Vogue:

“I can’t explain it. It’s something I have always felt: I love fashion and I love following it. Recently, at the London Summer Olympics, I did a lot of shopping and discovered Vivienne Westwood. I really like it.”

Westbrook has become a major force in NBA fashion as he stirs more debate in his interesting off-court styles than his game. If you’re wondering who styles him, the answer is no one—Russell doesn’t use a stylist.

“I don’t understand why I should hire someone to dress me. I like following my style, mixing garments that have different inspirations and ambitions. Why leave to someone else the pleasure?”

Probably one of the most fashionable NBA players to ever grace the court and “without a doubt, the division’s best dressed,” Westbrook’s fashion sense hasn’t gone unnoticed by his teammates. Thunder’s forward Kevin Durant ranked Westbrook as the best-dressed player during this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend. Here’s what Durant told GQ about Westbrook’s fashion sense:

“I see Russell every single day, and I love his style. He’s off the wall with the shirts, everyone knows that. But the best thing about him is that he doesn’t have a stylist. It’s crazy. He just has a really good eye. And he didn’t disappoint this weekend. You saw every side of him, from camo suit pants to Air Jordans.”
