Last night, people gathered at the Griffin in New York City to give the Hennessy Privilege Award to Carmelo Anthony for his philanthropic work through his foundation. All celebrities looked glamorous, elegant and fantastic at the lavish Griffin, themed in the time period of the Gilded Age/Industrial Revolution. Male celebrities such as Spike Lee, (2004 recipient of the Hennessy Privilege Award), MackWilds, Luke James, DJ Clue and JR Smith all showed with their wardrobe selections what makes them feel comfortable to be themselves. This feeling of comfort is the best example of a "sense of style".
- JR Smith displayed a classic sense of style wearing a jet black suit, black shirt and tie. By choosing the monochromatic color scheme, he put his facial features on display contrasted with the sheen of the wardrobe. His athletic silhouette together with the clean lines of the suit engage anyone to want to spend time with him. The hip hop artist Fabolous, wore a suit also with an offsetting white shirt and white tie--also a classic looking silhouette.
- Carmelo Anthony wore a double-breasted, shawl lapeled suit with a white bandit-collared shirt for the ceremony. The fit of the suit was perfectly tailored to Anthony's frame and gave him a distinct, distinguished look. The lapels and choice of double breasted suit was overwhelming, but it certainly showed his sense of style and comfort with the wardrobe choice.
- DJ Clue, MackWilds and Luke James all selected casual wardrobe choices to the event (short and long sleeve dress shirts, hats, headbands) and chose to let their faces (well-groomed) and accessories (bracelets, rings) stand out to others who would view their visual silhouettes. James wore a collared black vest with a zipper pocket over an athletic fit, black shirt together with silver and gold bracelets. Clue and Wilds were groomed very cropped with their facial hair while James had a larger groomed beard with styled hair.
- Spike Lee also displayed his own distinct style with a flat black jacket, fedora hat, t-shirt and off-colored brown glasses. Lee's wardrobe choices are comfortable and genuine.
The men displayed a feeling in their wardrobe choices similar to the Hennessy brand which is original and exceptional. Hennessy since 1765 has been one of the finest cognacs in the world and accompanies a man with a developed sense of style seamlessly. A sense of style not only pertains to wardrobe choices but also a man's activities and character. A well-fit suit, a drink of Hennessy and good company make for a memorable evening.
