Fashion Icon 2015: Mr. Nick Jonas

Well my bow ties, 2015 has come and gone in the flash of an eyeball blink and with it, all the fashion hits, misses, embarrassments, triumphs and eyeball rolling induced ensembles will fade away into oblivion, soon to be lost in our memories forever. But fear not my fellow bow ties, what better way to celebrate the new year of 2016 and move fashionably forward (for some of you) than by taking a look back at the past (yes, you read that sentence correctly). That’s right! The time has come to pay our fashion respects where fashion respects are due. Yep, it’s the 2015 Fashion Icon series… Happy New Year indeed 🙂

I must say, for a bow tie to receive a Fashion Icon award from the Gentlemen’s Style Academy is the highest of any fashion honor. This is something celebrities strive for their ENTIRE lives, it’s an award that makes the few select recipients in Hollywood (and elsewhere) more important than everyone else… and better looking. Lastly, it puts the “cred” in the oh so valuable “street cred”. So who is the first extremely blessed bow tie who should be forever grateful to have been bestowed this highly prestigious honor? Ex-boy band member Nick Jonas!!

There was an episode of Sex and the City where Samantha confidently declares to her man piece of the moment, “First the gays, now the girls!”  Well, Mr. Jonas has taken that mantra, flipped it and hasn’t looked back since.  Being the clever bow tie that he is, the youngest Jonas brother is working hard to prove he’s got versatility as an actor by taking on not only gritty dramatic roles but witty and deliciously trendy acting jobs that give a nice wink to Mr. Jonas’s carefully crafted hunky and sexually fluidish image. I see you Nicky. Smart.   Whew! Mr. Jonas has come a long way from his days as one of the Mouse ears biggest meal tickets… the Jonas Brothers. Since those days of yore, Mr. Jonas has managed to kick the “Jonas Brothers” (along with his actual brothers) to the curb, slip off his once immovable purity ring and carve out a pretty impressive solo music and acting career along the way. However, what’s more impressive is that whilst implementing his plan to drop his brothers (and virginity) like a hot potato, Mr. Jonas simultaneously looked absolutely AMAZING while doing so. Now that is something to be proud of. Nothing earns my accolades more than an impeccably dressed person implementing and succeeding in their evil and manipulative plans. To that I say well done Mr. Jonas. Well done.

Congrats to Mr. Nick Jonas,  the 1st  recipient of The Gentlemen’s Style Academy’s Fashion Icon 2015!

    I couldn’t agree more with Dana! Your writing voice is pure magic, so witty and refreshing. I always look forward to reading your post.
    Now, on to Nick Jonas 🙂 He really has shed his Jonas brother image and turned into a sharply dressed man. I can’t believe I just called him a man but I can’t deny the
    Wishing you a blessed 2016 💫😘

      Hi Jackie! Yes, doesn’t seem that long ago that Mr. Jonas was just a wee bow tie singing it up on Disney. Time goes by soooo fast. Interestingly enough, although Mr. Jonas has matured… I have remained ever so youthful… NOT! LOL. Thanks so much for your comment 🙂

    Hello! Bonne Année once again! I like your sense of humour and your style. Living across the ocean is a good excuse for I don’t have the slightest idea who this guy is, but on certain photos, it looks like he desperately needed a good stylist, but (alas!) was unable to find one!

    Really, I got no idea who this guy is, even less the reason why he gained popularity in the U.S. (He is popular in the U.S., right?)
    As for myself, I don’t have “fashion icons”. I don’t even know the (exact) meaning of this expression. There are / were the people who I understood much better than the others concerning the artistic expression in every sense and who made influence on me in terms of art, expression, style, creativity. I would mention just some of them.
    André Courrèges, who was more than just a fashion designer (“couturier”). He was a fashion architect, a real “visionnaire”, a true concept-designer back in the early sixties, who invented the totally new style in fashion, often referred to as “futurism of the 1960s”. I liked his ideas in both, fashion and industry, esthetics and ethical values… He will be missed!
    Christian Lacroix… the artist who brought back colors into the world of fashion. His fashion-style was like a symphony of colors, ideas, shapes, shades… I adore his theater and opera projects…
    Gianfranco Ferre, one of the most talented Italian designers ever… His architectural fashion, his constructions, clear lines and messages…
    These great designers are different, but the strength and clearness of their ideas, messages and the intelligence they introduced in design – each one according to his own style – were the most inspiring fashion and style milestones for me. Thank you for the inspiring question.

      LOL. I guess you could say Mr. Jonas is popular in the US… especially with the teenage girl population. But I think your fashion choices are excellent. I also like Gianfranco Ferre and Christian Lacroix… they probably could teach Mr. Jonas a couple of things 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment. Fashion truly is inspirational!
