Although, both Kanye and LBS’s fan bases turned up to support their stars big time, it was the celebrity power of the Kardashian family that pushed Kanye West over the winning line.

In the last moments of this year's voting, tweets from Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and even Kris Jenner increased the number of votes cast in West's favor.

Eventually, there were about one million votes cast in twenty-four hours. The final results were 520,119 votes for Kanye, 445,073 for Lucky Blue.

This is the 2nd time in a row West is emerging the Most Stylish Man  and obviously many think he deserves it. From the debut of his Yeezy label to the release of Yeezy Boosts throughout the year that continuously sold out.

West also had a powerful say in how men wanted to look in 2015. He contributed to the boost in athleisure, even becoming a word in the dictionary, through his athletic-inspired style.

In addition, his personal style was followed vigorously. If he wasn’t in a  Haider Ackermann velvet bomber jacket, then it was  a Balmain blazer, ripped Acne jeans or his Bottega Veneta Chelsea boots, with each piece becoming a conversation starter on menswear currently.

His influence on style and music is unyielding. Let us know what you think about is victory.
