Mark Ronson, musician/DJ/producer, has an amazing Brit-boy style, which is why we quizzed him on men’s fashion when he stopped by MTV studios recently. He opened up about a lot of things, including his least favorite trend (sandals in aiports), his personal style (jazz shoes are a fave), and how he would never consider himself a style icon (but he considers David Bowie one!). Also, of his recent change from brunette to bleached-blond hair, he busts the myth that blonds have more fun. “I haven’t had markedly any more fun since I’ve gone blond,” Mark Ronson said. “In fact, I think I’ve had less fun.” Watch all the videos below to find out more Mark Ronson thoughts on style.
MARK RONSON CLAIMS BLONDS DO NOT HAVE MORE FUN
“I haven’t had markedly any more fun since I’ve gone blond. In fact, I think I’ve had less fun because I think the expectations were so high of having so much fun being blond that it hasn’t been a great month, no.”
MARK RONSON ON BEING A STYLE ICON
“I feel like there’s people like David Bowie that are just smarter, and cleverer, and more stylish than the rest of us and reinvent the wheel and we all follow them. I don’t think I have that gene. I don’t consider myself a fashion icon. I think you’d have to be a bit of a d*** to say that out loud. Unless you’re David Bowie. Then you’re allowed to.”
MARK RONSON ON THE BEST AND WORST IN MEN’S FASHION
“I think we’re going through an OK period in men’s fashion. I think the indie-slash-American Apparel aesthetic has filtered into most of society. I don’t know, the kids are looking good.”
MARK RONSON ON HIS PERSONAL STYLE
“I don’t really spend a whole lot of time deciding what I’m going to wear in the morning. As far as sneakers go, I don’t really own that many sneakers. I used to own a huge amount, not like DJ AM or Samantha, my sister, levels of pairs of sneakers.”
