Often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Messi has won a record six Ballon d’Or awards and a record six European Golden Shoes. The Barcelona star’s perfect game techniques and calm composure have made him an opposition’s worst nightmare. Messi achieved these accolades by continuously performing to a ridiculously high standard. So we can not deny his success on the field but what about Messi as a successful fashion icon. Lionel will be too humble to admit he is a fashion icon. But with his fame on the field comes also fame off the field and he has become the face for the Italian label Dolce & Gabbana.
It takes men like Messi to push the boundaries for guys in sports to think about what they are wearing. It is exactly this attitude that Messi shows the world that he has is ruling on the field with soccer and off the pitch with his style. He has taken the risk, kicked the limits of that stereotypical dressed attire of the past and is redefining evening wear for men in sports. He has sported denim jackets to pullovers and velvet blazers to polka-dotted jackets. He has set the bar quite high with his style statement and is an icon for men to take their fashion sense seriously.
Have a look at his pictures and marvel at his fashion statement.
