If, like me, you’re glued to Fiver‘s Stylista, you’ll have spotted contestant Dyshaun. In the show where 10 contestants battle (literally) to win an editorial position at Elle‘s NY offices and a rent-paid apartment for a year, the male candidates haven’t set much of an example in the style stakes, except for Dyshaun. He’s a trend follower rather than a setter, but is always impeccably groomed and has a great eye for colour. Highlights include his slouchy beanie, worn just so, those great glasses and a rather lovely Louis Vuitton scarf and American Apparel T combination in the royalest of blues. He also works the shirt, tie and jeans look with great panache.
Not that he’s had much competition, early loser Arnaldo had very promising hair but not much else. Panic-attackee Jason didn’t even have the benefit of great hair. Whilst William, the the only British-born contestant, started off as a Clockwork Orange punk but pouted himself out of the game without much elegance.
So, Dyshaun definitely the winner in the male Stylista stakes and worth taking note of for his grooming and accessorising skills. But what a bitch!
