LaKeith Stanfield is an actor and musician who is prominently known for his breakthrough role as Darius in Atlanta, which he was supposedly casted for after Donald Glover saw him at a house party dancing like no one was watching. This type of energy and mentality has now come to define him as one of the most cool enigmas in Hollywood, and it can be seen in the way he shows up to premieres and shows. As GQ has stated, LaKeith knows the golden rule of good style: always dress for yourself and no one else.
