Justin Timberlake so stylish says Ford

Justin Timberlake has been praised for his "innate style" by designer Tom Ford.

The two dapper gentlemen have teamed up on Justin's upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which is his first musical offering in six years.

The respected designer's role was to create the looks sported by the performer in the promo for his first single Suit & Tie, which features Jay-Z.

"I adore Justin. He has innate style and enormous talent. It has been such a pleasure and honour to work with him throughout this entire creative process," Tom gushed to WWD.

Tom also created the artwork for the album's first single, the cover of which sees Justin sporting a tuxedo with satin lapels, shirt and oversize bow tie, which is a signature accessory from the designer's menswear line.

As well as being involved in the new album's debut single, Tom and his team are said to have worked closely with Justin on the rest of the album's future releases. This includes made-to-measure tailoring and personalised accessories that will be revealed when the record is released later this year.

Justin has been on the radar as one of the best dressed males in Hollywood for a considerable number of years now. Recently, he has been sporting more revamped fashion ensembles at high profile events than ever before.

At the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards in Los Angeles Justin cut a sharp figure dressed in a slim fit Tom Ford suit from his spring line.

The ensemble, that resembled the pieces Tom designed for James Bond last year, consisted of a notch-lapel silk/linen hopsack suit in a black, brown and grey check pattern, paired with a pastel brown gingham shirt, grey knit tie and a pair of black leather loafers. The finishing touch was a brown-and-white silk pocket square which was seen peeking from the top pocket.
