Last week, Sports Illustrated announced a new foray into fashion with its Fashionable 50 list, a ranking of the most stylish athletes in sports. Today, the full list was unveiled, along with its top 10 finalists, and the most fashion-forward title is well deserved.
Coming in at number one is Victor Cruz, telling SI, “football gave me a platform to show the world how I dress.” Also among the finalists are tennis legend Serena Williams and American ballet dancer Misty Copeland, who have powerful partnerships with brands Nike and Under Armour, respectively. Swin Cash of the New York Liberty was in the top 50, landing this stunning SI cover along the way.
Among the panel that chose the Fashionable 50 were InStyle’s Fashion Director Melissa Rubini and SI Swimsuit models Chanel Iman, Kate Bock, and Nina Agdal, who revealed how they really felt about the athletes' style in a hilarious video.
Tonight, panelists, editors, and honorees will come together to celebrate the accomplishment at a star-studded N.Y.C. event filled with fashion, glamour, and some of the world’s most talented athletes. Check out the full list on SI.com, and read up on all of the stylish stars in the new issue of Sports Illustrated, on newsstands tomorrow, April 13.
