ICONS OF STYLE - MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS
A LOOK AT THE FASHION AND PERSONAL STYLE OF THE POPULAR MUSIC DUO
The Grammy 2014 triumph was a small step for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, toward one giant leap for equality.
Thoughtful lyrics and fearless proclamations are slowly but surely rebuilding rap’s damaged reputation, crushing barbaric values of brute force and fixing the world’s most ridiculous misconceptions about same-sex marriage.
Besides seeking a way of expanding moral standards of humanism, these guys are cracking varied dress-code standards (including black tie and rappers quintessential attributes), taking a turn for the better side of swag.
We captured Ben Haggerty (Macklemore) and Ryan Lewis’s significant and soon-to-be iconic fashionable moments that has already made a mark on the Grammys history book, while single-handedly mocking the hip-hop establishment.
Macklemore purposefully neglected the red carpet’s impositions too. The American singer wore a teal velvet tuxedo, accessorised with a black bow tie and precious regals. His signature fringe was easy to spot too.
Thankfully, the urban lower-class has now been transcended into urban high-class, providentially revealing a different side of the baggy trousers ensemble (a cheap, meaningless and off-putting one). Henceforth, closet rappers, please take note!
