Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time Formula One champion, has been recognized for his impeccable style and included in The New York Times’ list of the ’93 most stylish people’. The list, which was released on Sunday, includes few other sportspeople, such as tennis player Serena Williams, basketball coach Sydney Carter, former football player Hector Bellerin, NFL player Joe Burrows, and NBA stars Steph Curry and LeBron James.
Hamilton, who has been known to frequently show up to the F1 paddock in unique and fashionable outfits, has long demonstrated a passion for fashion. He has been seen attending fashion events and shows, and has even been spotted alongside his friend, supermodel Naomi Campbell, at a recent Dior event. In addition to his appearances at high-profile events, Hamilton has also been featured in multiple campaigns for different designers. Earlier this year, he was the star of a Valentino campaign.
He posted to Instagram following the collaboration:
“Pink drip ~ Thank you @pppiccioli and the entire @maisonvalentino family for the warm welcome. Always knew I looked good in this colour”

“Great things happen when we embrace our authentic selves, but even greater things happen when we come together to exchange our visions, values, and creativity. I am honoured to be joining forces with Creative Director and friend, @pppiccioli and @maisonvalentino, a brand I’ve long admired, to celebrate the #ValentinoPinkPPCollection.
“I always strive to collaborate with likeminded teams who are committed to making the world a better place, regardless of the barriers that stand in our way. So, to come together and collaborate with Valentino on this powerful campaign is really special”
Despite experiencing issues during the 2022 F1 season, Hamilton and his Mercedes team saw significant improvements in the latter part of the season. This has given fans reason to be optimistic for the upcoming year. Hamilton’s inclusion on The New York Times’ list of stylish people is just another testament to his talent and passion, both on and off the racetrack.
