Eddie Redmayne tops GQ list of best-dressed men

The Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne has topped a list of best-dressed men, beating Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Dornan and Prince George.

Redmayne, a model and actor currently starring as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, is number one in the annual list from the men’s magazine GQ. Newsnight presenter Evan Davis received the “worst dressed” award.

Cumberbatch is in second place in the list, compiled by staff at the magazine and a panel of industry experts.

The top 10 also includes Fifty Shades Of Grey star Dornan, Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner, Radio 1 breakfast DJ Nick Grimshaw, actors Idris Elba and Douglas Booth, model David Gandy and film producer David Furnish.

While the Prince of Wales is in seventh place, his one-year-old grandson Prince George makes his debut in 49th position.

England footballer Wayne Rooney makes his debut in 26th place, after swapping shellsuits for a “sharp” wardrobe.

David and Victoria Beckham’s 12-year-old son Romeo, who recently modelled for fashion house Burberry, outshines his father in 25th place, compared to 46th spot for the ex-football star.

The magazine said: “Already following in the footsteps of his great-great-great-uncle, Edward VIII, and his grandfather, the Prince of Wales, Prince George looks set to become the UK’s best-dressed man.”

Edward VIII, who famously abdicated over his love of US divorcee Wallis Simpson, was known in the US as the “arbiter of men’s fashions”.

Davis, who recently took over from Jeremy Paxman as host of the BBC’s flagship show Newsnight, has been named worst-dressed man for his look on-screen.

Meanwhile, his BBC colleague, world affairs editor John Simpson, is named one of the best-dressed, in 32nd place, for being “the only reporter who consistently sports a well-pressed shirt under his flak jacket”.

The worst-dressed top 10 includes football commentator Clive Tyldesley, former cabinet minister Michael Portillo, The Only Way Is Essex star Bobby Norris, and TV doctor Christian Jessen.
