what the %^#@?
aside from the fact that i'm not a kobe fan, kobe's swag is a big whopping 0. he's not exactly a flyy type dude. and although i've only styled about 10 photoshoots, i probably would have went for a different look here. less willy wonka. and more ... kobe. call me a hater.
stylist, james valeri told the la times what his vision was:
"... it's mixing the the inspiration of tupac and a gentleman with a white hat ... a mix of hip hop and a conservative look."
i dare he even mention tupac's name. lol. wow.
