Developing great style takes time, and for those who’ve grown up in the spotlight, the progression can be charted in public appearances and social media updates. For Sehun, the fashion forward member of Seoul-based boy band EXO, his current dapper look is only the latest in a series of daring incarnations. The star, who turns 23 today, has never been afraid to experiment, and his willingness to test new ideas made for eventful moments. On the red carpet or off-duty Sehun has embraced trends before they hit critical mass; Whether he’s breezing through an airport in a brocade Gucci sweatshirt as he did back in November, or appearing onstage in a sleek Saint Laurent leather jacket during 2013’s KBS Song Festival, his menswear has been consistently chic.
Keeping things current when it comes to his beauty look, he’s switched length and color frequently moving between platinum bowl cut, multi-colored pastel waves, and a sophisticated dark crop. The hair may be ever-changing, but of late he’s settled into a fail-safe mix of luxury labels that flatter his lithe physique. Looking to favored brands like Louis Vuitton, Supreme, and Thom Browne, he’s found his staples in fitted bomber jackets, tailored trousers, and a sneaker-head-worthy collection of trainers.
Hitting several milestones this year by turning heads during Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2017 show in Paris and making an appearance on April’s cover of Korean Vogue, Sehun seems poised for greatness, a fact his fans appear to agree. To celebrate his birthday this year they pitched in to purchase him a plot of land in Glencoe Wood, Keil Hill, Highland, Scotland complete with a title, thus elevating their idol to the status of Lord. Though it's surprisingly affordable to make someone Scottish aristocracy—$40 per square foot with the proceeds going to nature preservation—the quirky gift may be the ultimate sign of fandom loyalty, and a look back through Sehun's appealing style hits makes you understand the devotion he inspires.
