Sports Illustrated's 'Fashionable 50'

Nowadays fashion has really stepped up in regards to athletes and style. What you wear during your pre-game and post-game interview is almost as important as how you played. With athletes teaming up with key apparel lines to create new clothing collection,  everyone is starting to take notice of the fashionable athlete.

Last week, Sports Illustrated released their "Fashionable 50" list, highlighting the best-dressed athletes from around the globe. The athletes were ranked not only on their personal style, but their fashion endeavours, partnerships, confidence and swag. Editors at the magazine teamed up with sports and style experts to curate the list. Among those were Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chanel Iman, stylist Brandon Williams and InStyle's fashion director Melissa Rubini. 

Who was #1? It's hard to choose the best dressed from the NBA, NHL, NHL, tennis and soccer worlds because their are so many athletes making their mark on the fashion world. But, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz took top honours. Easily one of the NFL's best-dressed, it's no surprise Cruz topped the list. 

To commemorate the best-dressed pro athletes, SI created four covers featuring Victor Cruz, Von Miller, Russell Westbrook and Swin Cash
