French Montana

Hip-Hop Rumors: French Montana The Style Icon?

French Montana truly is a Bad boy when it comes to fashion. The rapper has single-handedly brought back Versace and his fashion sense has been recently co-signed by “the fashion bible” – GQ. French recently gave several of the GQ editors a Versace makeover. Check out the before and after pics below:

So, is French Montana a style icon or not? I’ll leave that up to you to decide. You can check out the full GQ Q&A with Frenchie below:

GQ: When did you become obsessed with Versace?

French Montana: As soon as my money got right enough to buy Versace [laughs]. I have been a fan of Versace for so long, watching people like Biggie, Puff, Jay-Z. I’ve been collecting them for a while now.

GQ: Most of them are silk, bright pink or yellow, have flowers and angels on them…

French Montana: Yeah.

GQ: But they’re still super “Hip-hop.” Why?

French Montana: Rappers make something hip-hop. Like when Biggie wore the yellow one, the one that I wore for Summer Jam, he made it hip-hop. And when he wore the Coogi sweater, he made that hip-hop. Whatever rappers wear is cool to people.

GQ: You pay homage to Biggie a lot but how would you classify your style?

French Montana: I like colorful stuff. I like wearing stuff that nobody is wearing. That’s why I wear the bear hat. I’ll wear the whole mink. You wear the animal, but you don’t wear the head. I’m wearing the head this time around. It’s just like how I took the silk shirt game to another level and went and got the scarves—looked like King Jaffe Joffer out there. You know?

GQ: What would you tell someone who wants to get into the Versace game?

French Montana: I give the best advice and buy dumb shit. Like somebody will make money and they’ll be like, “Yo, man. I don’t know what to do.” I’ll be like, “Man, go buy some real estate.” Go open up a liquor store because everybody loves to drink. Then I turn around and buy a Rolls Royce Ghost. I just want to spend $30,000 at Versace. I just bought a Maserati. (laughs)

GQ: Do you think that the silk Versace shirts and the scarves wrapped around will ever be a huge trend? Will it ever make the pages of GQ?

French Montana: I guarantee it will. You give it a couple of months.

GQ: A couple months?

French Montana: Yeah, give it a couple months.

GQ: So, like the December issue of GQ?

French Montana: Um, I would say like the beginning of next year.

    I hope Sydney Lace isn’t being paid to do these columns because it’s the most unprofessional thing I’ve ever seen. The “after” photo is labeled “before”. Oh and by the way, French Montana dresses like a buffoon.

  • Good post, but I don’t like that much fashion styles as their mentioned over here. It was ok but so much goddy also. Look like so weird as well.
