How did Jonah Hill become a streetstyle icon

The love for Palace Skateboards is real

How did Jonah Hill become a streetstyle icon  The love for Palace Skateboards is real

High school reunions were invented to show to all those school mates who used to make fun of you how much you've improved after the end of school: the then loser, overweight student arrives with a ripped body and a great style, blowing everyone's mind. 

This could be Jonah Hill's story. Lead actor in both comedies - like 21 Jump Street - and more serious movies (like The Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball, nominated for an Academy Award in both cases), Hill is also a well-known author and screenwriter. In the last few years his dramatic weight loss was parallel to his rise as a style icon: after moving his first steps in the streetstyle scene, Jonah is now considered one of the best dressed men in the industry, testimonial for Palace Skateboards and with dozens of Instagram pages dedicated to his style.  

The morning walk to get some coffee turns for Jonah in the perfect catwalk to show his best outfits, immediately pictured by dozens of paparazzi. He tastefully mixes streetwear items and hype sneakers with fine tailored coats and wool jumpers (very often paired with shorts, because for a good outfit it's ok to dare the cold). Jonah is now ready for summer with his pink hair and colorful tie-dye T-shirts

It's a vibe

The American actor is particularly fond of Palace Skateboards. While hosting the popoular show SNL in 2016, he wore a black long sleeve with the classic brand triangle logo, making clear streetstyle is a serious business. The move from fan to ambassador was just a matter of time: just a few months later Hill, in an hilarious clip (virtually shot in the London store of the brand) introduces the new Palace collection in collaboration with Reebok. The following year he's once again recruited by Blondey McCoy's crew to announce the opening of a Palace Skateboards store in New York City. 

The final consecretion as style icon comes from the king of streetstyle himself: Kanye West. Hill was in fact among the guests of the rapper's listening party in Wyoming. In the pictures alongside Kanye and Kim, as well as with Nas and Chris Rock, the actor poses in his Palace jumper as if it was not a big deal. Like, whatever. 

Jonah Hill went from being a chubby and a bit lame Mr Nobody to a well-respected actor and style icon, proving there's hope for everybody.
