Originally written August 02, 2013 on A Glam Slam:
Vanity Fair has revealed its 2013 “International Best-Dressed List,” featuring a mix of A-list celebrities, designers, royals and professional athletes. Snagging a spot among the fashion elite is no easy feat, but three sports stars proved that their sartorial skills are just as impressive as their game. New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, Miami Heat forward, LeBron James, and New York Rangers goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist, represent the sports world on this year’s list. They have distinctly different styles, but all three men have been recognized for their memorable fashion choices outside of their sport, and are often ranked among the best-dressed athletes. Brady makes his second appearance on the list, as he was among the 2012 honorees as well. James is both a trendsetter and a risk-taker, as evident in the oxblood red tuxedo from Waraire Boswell that he recently sported at the ESPY Awards. Lundqvist is known for his classic approach to dressing and his impeccable suiting style. For the full list of Vanity Fair’s best-dressed honorees, visit here, and pick up a copy of the magazine’s September issue. Each of the featured athletes also shared their favorite places to shop, favorite accessories and style icons. Check it out: Tom Brady:  TOM’S FAVORITE ITEMS OF CLOTHING: “My wife’s lingerie.” FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP: “The World Wide Web.” FAVORITE ACCESSORY: “My wedding ring.” STYLE ICON: “Steve Jobs.” LeBron James: FAVORITE ITEM OF CLOTHING: “My lion-head chain.” FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP: “Barcelona.” FAVORITE ACCESSORY: “My Samsung 4S and music library.” STYLE ICONS: “007, James Bond; Bruce Wayne.” Henrik Lundqvist: FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP: “SoHo, in New York.” FAVORITE ACCESSORY: “Tie clip with a small diamond on it from my wife’s engagement ring.” STYLE ICON: “Frank Sinatra.”  (photos via vanityfair.com)
