Who wore what – 2015 NFL Draft Fashion – The 2015 N.F.L Draft has been underway since Thursday. Rounds 1 – 3 have been completed with former Florida State QB Jameis Winston being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the first draft pick. Rounds 4 – 7 of the N.F.L draft get underway around noon ET today.

In an article titled “At the N.F.L. Draft, Fashion Takes the Field”, the NY Times showcases “some of the best looks from the first day of the N.F.L draft” through the lens of their photographer Taylor Glascock. The images show a wide array of styles worn on the gold carpet, including this pair of gold spike-covered loafers from Christian Louboutin worn by Dante Fowler Jr.

In the New York times article, journalist Guy Trebay writes:

Sports stars in general are digging fashion lately, looking beyond their careers on the professional field even as they begin them. They are becoming increasingly mindful of such things as the sneaker contract that helped vault Michael Jordan to billionaire status; the style savvy that turned N.F.L. players like Victor Cruz and Colin Kaepernick into GQ cover stars and darlings; and canny design collaborations like the one the N.B.A. star Russell Westbrook recently entered into with Barneys New York.

We have to hand it to Dante Fowler. We love it when guys break the mold when it comes to fashion. So many guys try to conform their style to what will help them avoid labels.  A guy who can step out wearing spiky gold loafers with a red-trimmed white suit accessorized with a white and gold bow-tie gets out vote for dapper don of the moment.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
