While nobody’s calling Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg a fashion plate, he certainly doesn’t deserve to be on another worst-dressed list, does he? (He appeared on Esquire’s worst-dressed list in January of this year.)
Unfortunately, it’s happened again in the latest issue of GQ magazine — with Zuckerberg taking the top (or is it bottom?) spot of the 15 victims, with Apple CEO Steve Jobs taking the second-worst spot.
GQ’s “15 Worst-Dressed Men of Silicon Valley” is a mean-spirited little article that seems to attack many of these billionaire gentlemen because of their shape or weight issues. And all of the descriptions of the men are simply catty. For example, here’s GQ’s writeup for Mark:
“Style Sins: Oblivious to the fact that jeans and ties come in skinny sizes—or that suits exist—the father of Facebook (and we do mean father) loves to recycle the fresh-from-Stats-class look. Zuck’s style is so poor, it even inspired a mock fashion line, Mark By Mark Zuckerberg, which thankfully doesn’t sell any actual clothing.”
Jeez, guys – that’s just harsh.
