12. Bruce Lee
Even though the most famous image of Bruce Lee is him shirtless with slashes across his stomach and chest, his style kicked as much ass off the screen as he did on-screen. Lee was instrumental in changing the perception of Asians in mainstream media, and he did the same with the notion of how Asian cats could dress. Whether he was chillin' in athletic gear or strapped up in lavish suiting that was typical of the era, Lee proved that he could hang with the big boys both on set and in terms of steez. Consider him the first Asian-American style icon.
