New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz started off his fall season with the best of both worlds on September 5th. What’s special about September 5th? Well it marked the official kick-off of the NFL season, and it was also the first day of the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. What in the world would bridge these two events together? Victor Cruz.
Cruz won the award of “Most Stylish Athlete” at the 10th annual Style Award ceremony where the best of the best in the fashion and entertainment industries are honored. There are undoubtedly a lot of fashion forward athletes on the playing fields and courts, but it’s really cool when the industry can narrow it down to one individual. Cruz has certainly put in his time this year by displaying a variety of looks from street style rocking J’s and snapbacks to the higher end of men’s fashion where he’s donned in tailored suits and dapper looks. Amar’e Stoudemire, who is also known for his fashion-forward moves off the court presented Cruz with the award. Coincidentally they both share the same stylist as well, Ms. Rachel Johnson. Check out some of Cruz’s look over the year.
Cruz showed up to receive his award in style, dressed in a burgundy suit with black satin lapels.
