BTS And EXO’s Kai Make Rolling Stone’s “The 25 Most Stylish Musicians Now” List
On January 21 local time, the American pop culture magazine published its picks for the 25 most stylish musicians at the moment. They were voted by a select group of journalists, designers, and industry insiders, and the magazine added that the chosen artists are “influencing fashion as much as they’re shaping music.”
EXO’s Kai came in on the list at No. 24. Rolling Stone describes the idol’s style “runs the gamut from preppy to punk, and he deftly mixes fashion influences as easily as he mixes musical genres.” They mentioned the crop top he wore in EXO’s “Obsession” music video and his eccentric outfits in the “Peaches” music video. In 2018, Kai was Korea’s first ever male global ambassador for Gucci Eyewear.
BTS came in on the list at No. 4. Rolling Stone remarked that “BTS have always been as adventurous with their fashion as they are with their music.” Last spring, the group was even chosen as Louis Vuitton’s global ambassadors, and the magazine shared that “the fashion house called them ‘one of the most influential groups in the world.'”
Other famous musicians on the list include Lil Nas X, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Harry Styles, and Rihanna.
