When asked about his style by Vogue on the red carpet at the Met Gala earlier this month, the “Dirty Work” singer revealed that Timberlake is the man he looks to for his new look, which is all about a retro vibe.
“This past year I’ve really been focusing on my sense of style, and I think this look is a way for me to express that style with confidence,” Mahone told Vogue on the carpet. As for why he chose a velvet, double-breasted suit jacket, it’s all about going for the old Hollywood look.
“Justin Timberlake is definitely one of my style icons,” the Texas native explained. “He has a classic look with a streetwear edge.”
Mahone revealed that he also looks to another singer, his friend, Pitbull, for style advice and swagger.
“[He] has the freshest suits,” Mahone told the publication. “It’s his signature fit and he always looks so clean.”
This look is definitley old Hollywood — which is classic JT — and it has a clean and fresh look to it, which is a nod at Pitbull. Clearly, Mahone knows what he’s doing and has chosen the right style stars to follow.
