Bruno Mars Gets Dapper for GQ Magazine

 

“Grenade” singer Bruno Mars is making moves in a big way. mars recently took part in a photo shoot for a feature for GQ magazine.  The singer looked fashionable, handsome and at ease in all of his pictures. In his interview with GQ Mars opens up about his arrest for possession,  all the while giving fedora fashion tips.

Bruno Mars on his bust for cocaine possession in Vegas in 2010:

“I’m not gonna preach that I’m a role model. I’m a f**king musician! But I’ve learned people are watching, so don’t do nothing stupid.”

Bruno’s recommendations for wearing and werking your fedora:

Top Off Your Tee
That same gray hat works when you’re going casual, too. It’ll make a V-neck tee look like a style statement.

Draw a Straw
Felt fedoras are for fall and winter. When it’s hotter than hell, go lightweight in straw.

Find Your Rhythm
Think of the ribbon on your hat as a shot of color. Your clothes should play off it, not match perfectly.
