All-Star Saturday | Style Guide
By Damaris Lewis

Photo 1: Kobe Bryant

  • Kobe got tired of telling people everything he’s accomplished so he put it on his jacket.
  • What happens when Kobe tries to type all of his NBA titles and medals into a tweet and they can’t fit.

Photo 2: Joakim Noah, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

  • Now THIS is what I’m talking about. Cool, calm and collected. I love the burgundy pants on Joakim, Russell Westbrook decided to get on my good side by wearing suspenders, and Kevin Durant in that plum suit is the definition of dapper.
  • I kind of wish that Joakim Noah had on longer socks, it would have made this look a tad more formal. All-Stars is like the Oscars of basketball, but I love the look nonetheless.

Photo 3: The All-Star newcomers…and Luol Deng

  • Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, and Paul George look great. I love the bowtie on Holiday. George could have lost the scarf to make his outfit a little neater, but his copper tie is my favorite accessory in that elevator!

Photo 4: Dwight Howard, Zach Randolph

  • Trying to figure out if Dwight is about to head into the All Star Game or a T-mobile commercial audition.
  • Z-Bo is auditioning to be his understudy.
  • I didn’t know they made pink pants in size “Giant.”

Photo 5: Chris Paul

  • I loved this look until I looked down and saw his “Russell Westbrook Jurassic Park pants” socks!!!! I’m going to have to give State Farm a call to fix this.
  • Take note fellas: If you are going to wear a full collard shirt, tie, and vest, do as Chris does and tuck in your tie.

Photo 6: Tim Duncan

  • Tim Duncan, like Kobe, probably told himself yesterday morning “I don’t care about fashion, I’m here to play.” What happened next? This outfit.

Photo 7: Westbrook, Durant, David Lee, Howard

  • I want you to take a good look at Westbrook, Durant, and Lee’s faces. I’m pretty sure they all wanted to ask Dwight why he’s wearing the 2011 All Star Game’s Pink Carpet on his legs.

Photo 8: B.o.B.

  • I don’t have to squint and ask myself what he’s wearing today so I’ll just leave it at not squinting. Even though I’m sure he is with those sunglasses on inside the arena.

Photo 9: Westbrook’s new Jordans

  • Because it’s MJ’s birthday I won’t go in TOO much on these sneakers. I will say that if someone ever decides to make a movie called “Crouching Dinosaur, Hidden Fashion” that these need to be on the poster.
  • RAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Photo 10: Beyonce

  • It’s Beyonce, she can do no wrong. *drops mic*

Photo 11: Kevin Hart

  • Wondering if Kevin Hart had to get this green jacket tailored because the size small was too big for him.
  • Sunglasses. Indoors. #YOUKNOWYOUCANTSEE.

Photo 12: Ke$ha

  • Ke$ha thought she was performing on Dia de los Muertos, not on All-Star Sunday Night.
  • Somewhere in the world a kid has just picked their Halloween costume for this October.

Photo 13: Ludacris

  • I can’t tell if that’s a picture of Kobe, Chuck, or a life-size portrait of a bald Kevin Hart on his shirt.

Photo 14: Diddy and Jay-Z

  • All Black Everything!!! Nothing bad to say here, two pioneers of hip-hop looking very clean cut as always.

Photo 15: Gloria Reuben

  • *singing* You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happyyyyy when skies are grey.

NBA Style With Damaris Lewis

All-Star Friday | Style Guide
By Damaris Lewis

Photo 1: James Harden, Russell Westbrook

  • James Harden looks very dapper in his blue suit. I would comment on Westbrook’s pants, BUT I commend him for his ongoing fashion statements. We know these players for their uniforms, not their street style. Totes to RW for making us talk about more than his game.
  • Harden is asking Russell Westbrook why he has turned the Raptors’ camouflage jerseys into pants.

Photo 2: Westbrook on court

  • Fitted blazer, camouflage pants, yellow Air Jordan V “Tokyo 23” kicks, and stylish frames. If you ask me, I think Clark Kent is making a futuristic comeback…..and I like it.
  • If you look closely, Russell Westbrook matches perfectly with the basketball court.

Photo 3: Harden on sidelines

  • If Russell Westbrook can wear camouflage pants to coach, James Harden can wear pink socks, too.
  • I can’t lie, I did NOT see those coming when he walked out in his suit, but who doesn’t love a man bold enough to rock pink and not care?

Photo 4: LeBron’s portrait

  • It’s always nice to see a player dressed down, without a ton of clothes on that they are obligated to wear. One of the gems of All-Star Weekend is that it’s truly about the players and their individuality.

Photo 5: Swin Cash

  • Representing for the ladies!!! Loving this leather jacket look on Swin. It shuts down the stereotype that woman in the WNBA aren’t as stylish as those who work in fashion. She looks great!

Photo 6: Chris Bosh

  • Looking very dapper if I may so my self Mr. Bosh. If you regularly follow NBA style off the court you know that Chris Bosh seldom disappoints.
  • Fellas take note, his blazer is the perfect fit. Not too tight, and not too loose.

Photo 7: Anthony Davis’ shoes

  • This is what happens when a Hornet and a Pelican make a baby.
  • Would Chuck say these socks are turrible or turrific?

Photo 8: Dwyane Wade

  • Once upon a time an NBA player tried falling asleep by counting sheep, but instead started counting cows, and then put them on his shoes.
  • You can never go wrong with black and white, and I love that he added a hint of grey to the mix.

Photo 9: Blake Griffin

  • Cue Kia Optical Grand Opening commercial.
  • I will always be pro-nerdy look. I’ve worn prescription glasses since I was 7 years old.

Photo 10: Tina Thompson

  • My favorite part of this look is Tina’s shoes. She could have thrown on a heel to make it super sexy, but instead opted out and threw on a Military boot. It screams, I’m a woman, I’m fly, but don’t mess with me.
  • Spalding is being accompanied by some serious WNBA style.

Photo 11: Kevin Garnett

  •  Are those slippers?
  • All black everything, my favorite.

Photo 12: Paul George

  • Another all black look that I agree with. What I REALLY want to know is who’s teaching these players how to pose? Don’t steal my day job please.

Photo 13:  Tyson Chandler

  • Tyson Chandler or 007?

Photo 14: Damian Lillard

  • Trailblazer or lumberjack?

Photo 15: James Harden

  • I am a sucker for leather accents on clothing! This look is totally different from his coaching look. I love that! It shows variety in his wardrobe and that he can clean up well whether he is dressed up or dressed down.
