Ansel Elgort talks fashion role models in new interview

By Rachel Karach,

The Fault in Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort is known by his fans to have an awesome sense of style. Who does he look to for inspiration, you ask?

“It might be because I’m an actor but I want to look like different people all the time,” the 20-year-old told GQ. “I look back at the ‘50s and look at the way Frank Sinatra used to dress…or like classic pictures of Marlon Brando at the Oscars.”

Elgort is currently riding high from the recent success of his newest film, The Fault in Our Stars alongside co-star Shailene Woodley.

The young actor doesn’t only look for style tips from the past, however. “But then there are also…nowadays, I look at the way rappers dress, and I’m like ‘damn that’s so cool!’“ he says. “I feel like I look up to a lot of people.”

When asked who he thought was the most stylish woman on the planet, he smiled and replied as he laughed, “It would probably be my mother. I love you mom."

Elgort has most recently been cast to play the late pianist Van Cliburn in a new biopic.
