As an accomplished pro BMX rider with a long list of accolades, Ricardo Laguna is no stranger to crushing the competition. But it’s the work he does off the track that puts this go-getter a head above the rest. He’s hosted the Ricardo Laguna Pro BMX Dirt Challenge at Las Vegas’ Extreme Thing, an action sports and music festival, for more than a decade; starred in his own reality TV show, The Ricardo Laguna Project, on MTV Tr3s and MTV Latin America; and is the co-founder of Celebrando Hispanic Festival, an event that brings the community together to enjoy authentic fare and cultural music. Further, he flexes his business acumen as a seasoned real estate investor and gives back through his involvement with Clark County School District’s Professionals And Youth Building a Commitment (PAYBAC) initiative. Up next: Laguna will collaborate with the City of North Las Vegas to launch action sports events across the valley. Here, Laguna shares how dressing to impress keeps him in the winner’s circle. @ricardo_laguna
IN THREE WORDS, I WOULD DESCRIBE MY STYLE AS… colorful, tailored and classic.
IN THE NEXT YEAR, I HOPE TO… have my forever home with an indoor-outdoor BMX compound in my new backyard and host a home improvement show.
IF I WASN’T IN MY CURRENT CAREER, I WOULD… be a pilot.
MY STYLE HERO IS… I love how Rickie Fowler is always dressed colorfully when he plays golf, but Bruno Mars does a pretty good job too!
MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP FOR CLOTHES IN LAS VEGAS IS… The Shops at Crystals at CityCenter never lets me down.
MY FAVORITE SHOE DESIGNER IS… Lately, it’s been Ted Baker.
MY FAVORITE MEN’S DESIGNER IS… Saint Laurent.
MY FAVORITE WATCH IS… a one-of-100 Bulova watch I was gifted at the Latin Grammy Awards.
MY FAVORITE SHIRT IS BY… MACEOO. I am an athlete, and MACEOO performance-fabric shirts are a must-have!
MY FAVORITE TIE IS BY… Knotty & Ice because their ties and bow ties are embellished with Swarovski crystals. I love that when you’re in the spotlight, everyone will notice the shine.
MY STYLE PHILOSOPHY IS… the wilder, the better!
