From Prince Harry to Kourtney Kardashian: 15 Celebrities Who Embrace the Bow Tie

It used to be that only professor-types wore bow ties, but now bow ties are for everyone and all occasions. Prince Harry has, like, 100. And Kourtney Kardashian, who I would vote as the least likely to wear a bow tie, has even embraced the bow tie with her neck (as you will see below).

Celebrities look so snazzy in bow ties, most notably with a tux on the red carpet. Why? Because tying a bow around your neck turns your face into a present for us. Who doesn’t like celebrity face presents?

Silk, plaid, pink, or undone, bow ties add a touch of class to any throat — and the more famous the throat, the better.

    Let me introduce you to the untied bow tie. It's a look that works for Justin Timberlake. He either doesn't know how to tie it, or he just untied it. Either way, it's adorable.
