TIME magazine named Dante de Blasio the sixth most influential teen of 2013, crowning him New York City's "latest fashion icon" due to his "now-iconic" afro.
Dante even beat out Malala Yousafzai, Justin Bieber, and Malia Obama.
Back in August, the 15-year-old son of mayor-elect Bill de Blasio appeared in a now famous campaign ad in which he spoke against stop and frisk and the Bloomberg administration. The ad breathed new life into de Blasio's campaign, and thrust Dante, and his hairdo, into the national spotlight.
Dante's afro even garnered the praise and envy of President Obama.
