The all-black look made Johnny Cash a style icon, and Bruno Mars proved it still works today.
Talk about rock 'n' roll, this ensemble with the nod to the Wild West—and a Saint Laurent bolo tie!—gives Bruno my vote for look of the week. I mean, someone who can pull that off without looking like someone in a Clint Eastwood film is clearly killing it.
Mars looks super chic and modern, and his accessories (a simple ring and a mesh bracelet) add a bit of flash, completing the outfit. I also like his fresh take on the rockabilly pompadour: it isn't an exact pomp', but it mimics the style, without looking too greased up. His outfit doesn't come off as an imitation or a costume—but a contemporary take on a classic look, with a surprising bit of class.
