Icon of Class ... Charlie Siem
No classical musician — or more specifically, violinist — who is as sexy as Charlie Siem is. If it was not for the violin in his hand, I would have mistaken him as a model instead.
Born to Norwegian father and British mother and graduated from the prestigious Eaton, Siem has recruited millions of fans (including Lady Gaga) with his music and his boyish charm as well. Flip through some of the must-read style bibles for men (and the September issue of Vogue) and you can see Siem’s body draped in the latest threads of the season.
This fall, channel Siem’s über-sophisticated yet relaxed sense of style with the must have items that I have personally handpicked below. Also, do not forget to get a copy of Siem’s latest album, Wieniawski; Bruch; Bull: Violin Works with London Symphony Orchestra and Andrew Gourlay (Warner Classics).
