First seen at Stagecoach Festival and then Roc Nation's Roc da Court all-star basketball game, DJ and Producer Diplo has been rocking a modern cowboy look. In recent weeks, Diplo has favored the country and western style, as seen on the red carpet of the Billboard Music Awards, paying homage to cowboys past and present.

Diplo is not the first celeb to rock the western look. Over the years, Justin Timberlake, Casey Spooner and Ashton Kutcher have sported the style. More recently, Patrick Schwarzenegger attended this year’s Met Gala dressed in denim and a black blazer accessorized with a traditional cowboy hat.

It’s not just celebrities that have championed the Old West, many designers have featured cowboy/western looks on the runway and in ad campaigns.

For Fall 2014, Donatella Versace sent cowboys down the runway in studded leather chaps, while Moschino’s 2018 Vegas-themed resort show saw a cowboy walk the runway in his underwear, gold jacket, cowboy boots and cowboy hat. Fashion loves a cowboy.

We review some of the best cowboy looks.
