For 22-year-old Nick Jonas, style has been an integral part of his trajectory, especially as he matured from a purity-ring-wearing Jonas Brother to an abs-fabulous pop heartthrob in the mold of Justin Timberlake or a young Mark Wahlberg.
"I like classic elements but with bolder statements," says the youngest of the Jonas juggernaut, whose career as a solo artist has taken him to new heights -- and new venues, from the unveiling of a Lord & Taylor holiday window to a gay club in New York's Hell's Kitchen. "Your clothing and approach to fashion are the visual statements you make as a performer or a songwriter."
It doesn't hurt when reaching out to new fan bases either. Since going solo, Jonas has sold 388,000 albums (according to Nielsen Music) with "Jealous," the second single from his eponymous sophomore album, hitting No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
