Russell Westbrook is a successful athlete who styles himself and this shines through on the L'Uomo Vogue February 2013 cover. Westbrook plays for NBA team the Oklahoma City Thunder and is a three-time all-star player. He is infamous both on and off the court. Westbrook has an innate sense of style and is one of the few professional athletes who doesn't require a personal stylist. Westbrook considers fashion a hobby and embraces it with the same enthusiasm he has for basketball.
L'Uomo Vogue Italia took note of Westbrook's style and decided to feature him on the February 2013 cover with a feature editorial within the mag. The monochromatic spread is masculine and exudes power. Westbrook is shown decked out in the finest duds clasping on to a basketball.
The Russell Westbrook cover for L'Uomo Vogue Italia February 2013 is the perfect hybrid of sport and fashion.
