Syrian actor Bassel Khaiat is the cover star of GQ Middle East magazine’s April edition entitled “The Unshakable Confidence.”
Bassel unfolded the spontaneous side of his personality in the interview and photoshoot, and a little bit of his feminine fashion style.
Khaiat sparked a wave of controversy among his fans, due to his different looks in form and content, as their comments varied between those who praised his oriental beauty as he sported designer clothes, such as: Fendi, Versace and Alexander McQueen.
Others criticized Bassel Khaiat claiming that this funky style does not suit his demure personality, they also asked him to stay away from this edgy fashion and go back to his usual smart fashion sense.
One picture in particular was heavily criticized of Bassel as he appeared to be wearing feminine attire and shoes, which reminded followers of Harry Style’s latest feminine fashion choices.
