Russell Westbrook Covers Flaunt Magazine

The convergence of sports and fashion is rampant; yet no collective group of athletes have become trendsetters quite like NBA stars.  Their style off the hardwood is often subject matter for blogs, publications, and even in-game commentary.  However, no one is both praised and mocked for his fashion-forward looks more than Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.  Intentional or not, Westbrook has earned a polarizing reputation for his suave ability to seamlessly crossover from boardroom chic to blipster street.  Even the Godfather of NBA fashion, Walt Clyde Frazier, has recognized the fashion risks taken by the 6’3 point guard.  Regardless, Westbrook’s bonafide style and individuality have launched him to the forefront of top fashion houses and editorials, alike.

On a recent day off, Westbrook was the subject behind the camera lens of Flaunt Magazinebecoming the first athlete to grace the fashion magazine’s cover.  Consistent with his GQ and L’Uomo Vogue spreads, Flaunt captured Westbrook’s flair for bold patterns, bright colors, and everyone’s flavor of the month, leather.  Nothing was off limits for Westbrook as we observe his style morph from high street, retro Air Jordans and canary yellow Levi’s 501 jeans, to high fashion, Polo Ralph Lauren and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Game recognize game.

Here are a couple of flicks from his shoot…
