New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. lands on the coveted (by some) Sports Illustrated’s Fashionable 50.

You’ve seen him for a few years now. Whether it’s on the field, on the sideline (doing unspeakable things with a kicking net that your parents would try to blind you from as a kid), or on the street, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is always fashionable.

He’s aware of his fashion, too.

But does he care enough to really be proud of landing on the Sports Illustrated Fashionable 50 list? I’m not too sure.

Nonetheless, that’s exactly where OBJ landed recently, in the top 50 while coming away with the “Swag Award.”


“It may be the hair—which has become a standard in barber shops around the country—or his hip-hop influenced personal style, but OBJ is a fashion killa. Whether he’s wearing…deconstructed denim or his layers on layers of gold chains, Beckham is confident in his clothes and always carries himself with an unmatched level of coolness.”

Interestingly enough, OBJ’s former teammate, Victor Cruz, finished No. 2. Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks took the No. 16 spot while New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist finished sixth.

The man of the fashionable hour is the NBA MVP, Russell Westbrook, who took home the top prize.
