Kanye West Is Named GQ's Most Stylish Man of 2015 and Kim Kardashian Couldn't Be Prouder

Kanye West is a rapper, businessman, fashion designer, all-around media mogul and, now, the proud winner of GQ magazine's Most Stylish Man of 2015 for the second year in a row.

The men's magazine announced earlier today that Yeezus walked away with the title after a flurry of votes helped him come out on top against model Lucky Blue Smith. The mag explains that while both fan bases came out to help their celeb claim victory, "in the final moments of this year's showdown, tweets from Kim, Kourtney, Khloe [Kardashian] and even Kris Jenner spiked the number of votes cast in West's direction."

They add, "And in the end, there were a lot of votes; nearly one million cast in twenty-four hours. The final tally: 520,119 votes for Kanye, 445,073 for Lucky Blue."

Earlier this year, the 38-year-old star was named one the most stylish men alive by GQ magazine, joining the ranks of 20 fashionable men hand-picked by the publication, including Ryan Gosling, Jay Z, Pharrell Williams, Bradley Cooper and more.

According to GQ, the men were chosen not by what they wore on the red carpet, but instead by their street style.

"The team spent countless hours pulling scores of photos—pretty much every look each nominee has been caught wearing in the last few years," the website explained at the time. "There were moving boxes full of research files, long editing sessions spearheaded by creative director Jim Moore and design director Fred Woodward, and still more debate that centered around the question: Who truly has unique, effortless, deeply-ingrained personal style that we all can learn from?"

For West, fashion design has been a lifelong dream. "I dreamed, since I was a little kid, of having my own store where I could curate every shoe, sweatshirt and color. I have sketches of it. I cried over the idea of having my own store." he told New York Times' fashion magazine, T, in April.
