Siva Kaneswaran Beats Colin Farrell, Niall Horan and Bressie to become Ireland’s Best Dressed Man
The Wanted boy band member, Siva Kaneswaran, has beaten off some serious stiff competition to become Ireland’s best dressed man. The 22-year-old singer, who grew up in Blanchardstown, Dublin, has been top of RSVP’s best dressed man poll for the last number of days with 42% of the votes. Nearly 18,500 readers of www.rsvpmagazine.ie voted over the last two weeks, but Siva was a clear winner ahead of other hot dressers like, Nicky Byrne, Colin Farrell, Brian Ormond and Mullingar’s finest Niall Horan and Bressie.
Siva was absolutely over the moon with his award telling www.rsvpmagazine.ie
“It is an honour to be voted as Ireland’s Best Dressed Man! Thank you to all the people who voted for me!”
Siva, who is known for his sultry good looks as well as his singing abilities, is currently enjoying worldwide success with boy band The Wanted, who were formed in 2009 and made their debut release in June 2010. The group consists of members Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Siva. After domineering the charts in the UK and Ireland, the boys began to see success in the US and Canada in early 2012, with hit single “Glad You Came” selling three million copies and becoming #3 on the billboard chart. The Wanted are embarking on a world tour this year to support the release of their third studio album called Third Strike, which is scheduled for release in March of this year. The tour will see Siva back on home soil as they are playing Live at the marquee in Cork on June 16th.
Siva, whose father is Sri Lanken and mother is Irish, comes from a very talented family, he is the younger brother of former Dove member David and former Popstars; The Rival contestant Hazel. His eldest sister Gayle and twin brother Kumar are also well known models. Siva started modelling at 16 and appeared in various ads and along with his brother Kumar landed a contract with Storm Model Management. The twins took part in Rock Rivals, televised in eight episodes in 2008. Siva played the role of Carson Coombs and his brother that of Caleb Coombs. The brothers also appeared briefly in one episode of Uncle Max. The episode “Uncle Max Plays Tennis” aired on 11 July 2008. Siva was spotted through his modelling campaigns and recruited as a result for the band.
Although music has always played a big role in the Kaneswaran family, they didn’t have a record player when Siva was young so as a little boy his dad would bring him to his neighbour’s house and they would sit for hours and listen to music, it clearly paid off.
Siva’s style and good looks are obviously a big hit with the ladies but the talented star is currently in a long -term relationship with Nareesha McCaffrey.
RSVP thinks Siva is a very worthy winner and is looking forward to seeing him back in Ireland this coming June.
