Celebrities and their relationship with their tie
While many only wear a tie for special occasions, a few times a year, for others the tie is an essential accessory that makes their everyday look complete. This is especially true for politicians, managers and personalities from the entertainment industry such as film and television. Not a surprise: who stands often in the spotlight and has their photo taken needs to pay attention to the appearance.
To wear a tie to work is a must for many business men and the most famous (and influential) managers in the world are not excluded from this dress code: Donald Trump for example does indeed not work in the fashion industry, but is always seen with an impeccable outfit and pays great attention to every detail, in any situation. To see Donald Trump without a suit, shirt and tie is almost impossible.
Trump particularly likes his accessories in eye-catching colors like pink or blue, striped ties and also ties in various shades of red that has always been a symbol of power.
We stay in the United States and look at the outfit of one of the most influential people in the world: Barack Obama. Among the many available colors, the U.S. president seems to have a particular fondness for blue and red ties.
This colour choice is not accidental. Blue is the colour of his party, the Democrats. The reason for choosing red ties is the same as Donald Trump’s. They are a universal symbol of strength and determination. However, red is also the colour of the Republican Party, so the accessory also symbolises a gesture of openness to the political opponents.
Other celebrities who are often seen with a tie especially when they appear on the red carpet, are Robert Downey Jr., who often choses a black skinny model with a simple knot and Will Smith, who is often seen with colourful neckties knotted with a more curious knot (ie. Windsor). But this is just a selection of the long list of famous tie wearers!
Of course, there are also celebrities who reject ties despite their high social position. A memorable proponent of this point of view was the Dutch Prince Claus von Amsberg (1926-2002), who went down in the history of the neck tie with his “declaration of war on the tie” .1998 , during the presentation of the Prince Claus Award, the spouse of Queen Beatrix unknotted his tie and threw it on the podium as a sign of liberation from the “serpent around his neck” and called for a life in the “paradise of the open collar”!
