Before becoming a wrestler, Dwayne Johnson started his athletic career as a football player, playing as a defensive for the University of Miami, and signing with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL in 1995, though he was cut just two months into the season.

After cutting cut from the Stampeders, Johnson turned to pro wrestling, making his WWE debut in 1996 under the name Rocky Maiva, a combination of the ring names used by his father and grandfather, who were both wrestlers themselves.
In a reference to his lineage in the sport, Johnson was given the nickname "The Blue Chipper."
Climbing the WWE ranks, and catching flack from fans, Johnson changed his ring name to The Rock, setting him on the road to superstardom.

By 2000, The Rock was one of the biggest stars in wrestling, earning fans through his sharp charisma, and his flashy style, including plenty of gold and metallic colours.

After beginning to dominate in the ring, The Rock soon turned his attention to acting, appearing in "That '70s Show" and "Star Trek: Voyager".
His big break into movies came with 2001's "The Mummy Returns", in which he was infamously turned into a very unconvincing CGI character called The Scorpion King, which led to his own spin-off movie the next year.

As he rose to fame in both wrestling and the movies, Johnson regularly kept a sunny disposition, with a style perfectly suited to L.A. and the beach life, regularly sporting coloured sunglasses.

Through the early '00s, Johnson continued his WWE career while becoming a bigger and bigger movie star thanks to films like "The Rundown", "Walking Tall" and more.
All the while, The Rock kept his style perfectly laidback whenever he hit the red carpet, often skipping the suit for a more relaxed look.

After departing the WWE in 2004, The Rock put all his focus on his film career, racking up a number of big roles in movies like "Doom" and "Gridiron Gang", and even taking a trip to the Cannes Film Festival with director Richard Kelly's 2006 apocalyptic epic "Southland Tales".

Despite leaving the WWE, The Rock kept one foot in the world of pro wrestling, and returned to host WrestleMania in 2011, where he struck up a feud with rival star John Cena, even getting back in the ring against his foe.

Johnson was all suited up on the promotional tour for his biggest Hollywood break yet, in 2011, when he starred as Luke Hobbs in the blockbuster "Fast Five". The movie was one of the highest-grossing of the year, and helped turn The Rock into a reliable face at the box office.
It also set him up for several more appearances in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, including his spin-off "Hobbs & Shaw".

The Rock appeared in five movies in 2013, including "Snitch", "G.I. Joe: Retaliation", "Fast & Furious 6" and "Empire State", as well as Michael Bay's raucous satire "Pain & Gain".

After producing and starring in the HBO series "Ballers", Johnson produced the sitcom "Young Rock", based on his own life.

After years of trying to get a "Black Adam" film off the ground, Johnson finally realized his dream with the DC superhero movie's release in fall 2022.
The actor celebrated in style, literally, pulling off some excellent looks, including an appearance in Madrid, where he rocked a great button-down shirt and classic aviators.
