President Kagame is considered to be one the most well-dressed politicians in the world. “Paul Kagame certainly has a way with fashion, dressing in a way that makes him stand out without appearing as if he’s even trying,” says cheap-neckties.com. The American fashion blog says Kagame’s style and fashion “can help you to gain a better understanding of how you might be able to improve your own look.”
Sometimes President Kagame can indeed fly fashion critics and venerators into a bit of a tizzy, especially when he shows up in a relaxed dress code on state functions. He has made it several times that there is no much fuss made over fancy slim-fit jackets or in his long-sleeved khaki shirts, occasionally sleeves rolled up.
Thing is, he has more often broken the presidential and corporate rules of wearing a suit and tie at all the times. The President simply likes to “crank up the thermostat” and shows up more “cooler” and “sputtered” or call it soft exploded. He is stylish, make no mistake, in his own way, but one thing for sure; he is not a “designer of haute couture” in other words not a serious “a fashionista.” Basically, splurging on expensive clothes doesn’t look like his thing. He is a ‘play it cool’ kind of a guy.
Below we sampled some images from his photographer. Some images show him dressed to kill, others show him in a smart casual and others in a “cool genre.” What is clear is that, whatever he puts on, it all fits and goes well with his stature.
You might describe it differently, but that is him anyway.
The Sharp Side
During the celebration of 10 years of Rwanda-Oklahoma Christian University Partnership, February 10, 2017.
During the Diplomatic Luncheon hosted by the President on January 23, 2017. Clearly the First Lady Jeannette Kagame (C) and Foreign Affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo (R) had nailed it in a chocolate touch on their taste.
The Cool Side
This photo made rounds on social media a few weeks ago, with many expressing how cool Kagame can be sometimes. The combination of a classy boot and a doted silk necktie under a single button jacket with him smiling warmly, was a “top notch” shot of the month. President Kagame was captured speaking at the CNBC Televised session: “Building Africa” in Davos on January 18, 2017.
While other officials clobber the design with sharp and classy outfits at an ordinary occasions such as the recent visit in Nyagatare district when meeting villagers, the President did not scare. A simple shirt, tucked-in and a green Safari Hat. That’s it.
