Why schlubby Adam Sandler is the most Googled style star of 2021
Call him Snappy Gilmore.
In a class of its own, Adam Sandler’s shabby chic vibe earned him the # 1 spot as Google’s hottest celebrity style star in 2021 – and fashion aficionados are stunned by the results.
“It’s the ultimate in fashion,” style expert Robert Verdi told The Post of the “Click” actor’s unabashed flair. “He looks like he’s in the process of rehab, but people love him because he’s genuine.”
Sandler, 55, best known for wearing oversized athletic shorts and tucked-in T-shirts, beat pop powers Britney Spears (No.2), Harry Styles (No.6) and Lizzo (No.9) in Search Google Category “celebrity outfits”.
And Verdi – a stylist who once hosted “Fashion Police” and held a cameo role in “The Devil Wears Prada” – credits the Brooklyn native Sandler’s new fashion fame to the pandemic.
“In the wake of COVID, we all realized that materialism didn’t matter,” said style guru Sandler, who is estimated to be worth $ 420 million. “He represents what we all did during the lockdown, who stayed in the same sweats for a week, didn’t shower every day, and wore old house shoes to walk the dog.”
Sandler, like many leggy teenagers and models, is also a fan of Ugg boots, which he skillfully pairs with bare legs and gigantic shorts.
“Her ‘f — k it’ look resonates with people more than ever because it’s real life. No one walks around in Dior and diamonds. People like that he feels comfortable being himself, ”added Verdi.
And the thousands of fans who follow #SANDLERCORE – a hashtag with 329,000 videos on TikTok – totally agree.
“All I want to wear right now is Sandlercore,” said one fan in a video showing a series of photos of Sandler’s street style. “It’s hot.”
“I have decided that 2022 is the year when my style will be one hundred percent influenced by Adam Sandler, ”tweeted another fan of the trend.
Here, Verdi weighs in on some of Sandler’s more oafish outfits.
Fabulous “Breaking Bad”
“It’s the methamphetamine maker’s utter chic here,” Verdi joked of Sandler’s ramshackle clothes. “The look gives me Walter White in ‘Breaking Bad’,” he laughed, referring to Bryan Cranston’s Crystal Meth-cooking character in AMC’s hit drama.
“Looks like he just committed a crime,” Verdi said. “This is the outfit you wear when you go out, late at night, to trick your boo with your side boo,” he laughed. (Note: Sandler has been married to his wife Jackie for 18 years, and there have been no rumors of his infidelity).
“Happy Gilmore” outfit
“He’s dressed like he’s about to play golf with Caitlyn Jenner,” Verdi said, noting Sandler’s mint polo shirt and soft cargo cuts. “It’s a messy look, but it’s his more formal and elevated messy look because he’s probably going somewhere that’s semi-important.”
“This North Face hooded outfit is probably her most fashionable look,” Verdi said. “Her haircut looks quite fresh, the red of the hoodie is tied with part of the red of her socks and sneakers and the blue mask goes with the shorts,” he added. “But the dog is the real eye-catcher here.”
