Joshua Ledet's Fashion

Joshua Ledet has already developed his own fashion style on the television show's 2012 stage, impressive for such a young age. On May 2, he donned his classic suit style as he sang The Temptations' hit "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" for the 60's-themed television episode of American Idol.

Joshua Ledet wore a black blazer with black-and-white striping on the arms as he moved confidently across the television stage. Under the blazer was a rich deep-blue collared cotton shirt. His stream-lined black pants and black shoes were a sophisticated way to complete the outfit's classic fashion statement.

The final touch was the fresh yellow daffodil pinned to his blazer. The flower added a pop of colour to the outfit that set Ledet apart for fashion from competitors such as Phillip Phillips, who wore grey and olive green on the same American Idol night.

The blazer was a unique fashion piece with the striping and fit perfectly to Joshua Ledet's slim profile. The pleats of the blazer created a fitted look as he walked the the television stage. The singer is in style as pleats are a popular fashion trend for the spring season. The outfit translated well onto the television screen.

The Help of Fashion Icon Tommy Hilfiger

Joshua Ledet polished his appearance on the American Idol stage when fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger appeared on the show for the television episode March 21. As a celebrity stylist, Hilfiger's role was to polish the look of the American Idol contestants.

Hilfiger said of Ledet, "I think Joshua has a chance to be polished. I think that by dressing him up it will help him." Hilfiger suggested Ledet wear a suit or a tuxedo to create a more dressed-up and fashion savvy look on the television stage.

Since the American Idol episode, Ledet has worn fitted blazers, shirts and crisp pants. The singer has a suave appearance that is fashion forward each time he appears on the television stage. Tommy Hilfiger's fashion advice has been well taken and looks great on television!

The television look needs to be fashion forward, trendy. fresh and relatable with television viewers. The 2012 American Idol viewers are looking for the total package, a young singer who is conscious of fashion and has a great voice as well. Joshua Ledet meets the American Idol requirements!

I agree with all of you. Joshua is the best and deserves to win! Jessica is my 2nd favorite. P2 is not on my radar, sorry Phillip fans.

Great article. I have watched this season from the beginning and at that time wasn't a huge fan of Joshua. But, over the weeks...both his voice, personality and style have won me over. Great idea also including one of the songs he sang, I played it as I read. Cheers!

@Bill, I thank you for reading the article when you have no knowledge of the show. Now that is a loyal reader! Thanks for the wonderful compliments and happy weekend to you too.

@unknownspy, His voice is certainly amazing! Thanks for the comment here.

@Rosie, Yes I too am a big fan of American Idol! When I read your hubs about the show I knew I had to link to one of them :) I think Adam Lambert is so talented; sometimes the winner does not get as much success as some of the other finalists, as in the case of Adam. Thanks for the great comment!

@teaches, Yes he has a great voice and dresses the part well! Regardless of whether he wins, I know he will have success in music. Thanks for the comment :)

Hiya Christy, always nice to meet a fellow Canadian and American Idol follower. Omg isn't Joshua so talented? As far as the judges go, Joshua already won.

I follow American Idol religiously since season 1. I'm a big fan of Adam Lambert, who was cheated out of a win in season 8 (who won? nobody remembers). Last season I followed Scotty McCreery's American Idol journey to the finish line and was ecstatic to see him win. I love Scotty.. he is soooo adorable.

Great job in featuring Joshua Ledet, and thanks for linking to my American Idol judges hub. Voted up. Cheers!

Have a nice day,

Rosie
