In the February issue, GQ claims that Jay-Z is one of the 25 most stylish men in the world. Some of the other names listed are David Beckham, Russell Brand and Johnny Depp.
According to GQ, it has nothing to do with his style, just the glasses that he wears.
Jay-Z Tops it Off with his Shades of Power:
Jay-Z just turned 40, but he still looks more now than guys half his age. He also knows that the key to a mysterious superstar persona can be as simple as a dark pair of shades. Like pitch-black dark. Like Bob Dylan in “No Direction Home” dark. Wear his frames, but please: Don’t adopt his habit of wear them inside.
