Style Icon: Sammy Davis Jr.

3432520644_e0c640ecc5Growing up, the only celebrity’s style that I wanted to emulate was Michael Jackson. As a child of the 80s, you cannot really blame me because the King of Pop was everywhere at that time. During this time, I was exposed to icons like Cab Callaway, Nat King Cole, and Sammy Davis, Jr., but never understood the impact men like them had had on not just black culture, but culture in general. For me it took watching the original Oceans 11 as an adult to fully appreciate the greatness that was Sammy Davis, Jr. It takes a hell of an actor to have enough swagger and charisma to outshine Sinatra in his own movie. Let us just take a moment to honor this style icon.
