1. Danny Brown
The Detroit native was once ridiculed for his tight-fitting jeans and swept-over hair. But Danny Brown stuck with what's his and now the rapper is stuntin' in lookbooks all over the place and chillin' with Mark McNairy, who was Complex's Man of Next Year in Style. He even closed the designer's premiere runway show at New York Fashion Week in a one-of-one gold lamé suit and 10 gallon cowboy hat. The Fool's Gold member went from rocking full Jeremy Scott and acid wash to Givenchy, Balenciaga, and of course McNairy, all with the same signature missing tooth and wild man's hair. With his album ODB coming to near completion, we can't wait to see how Danny steps it up in 2013 and evolves his always unique style.
