The shortlist for GQ’s Best Dressed Man 2015 has been revealed and it’s now over to the One Direction lovers and the Colin Firth fanatics, among others, to get their voting fingers ready. Will Zayn Malik reign supreme once again? The One Direction star was crowned 2014’s Best Dressed Man (manchild, more like) while 2013’s winner Tom Hiddleston, whose fashion advice amounts to ‘try not to look like a tit’, was sadly knocked off his prime position last year ranking just behind the sometimes scruffy Robert Pattinson. He cleans up nice in a Dior suit, mind.
In our opinion Zayn Malik is far from Britain’s best dressed man; Tom Hiddleston should just always win but we know, we know, we can’t have it our way.
Vying for the title this year you’ll find Damien Lewis of Homeland fame, B, Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe who’s really coming into his own of late, no longer the bespectacled child star we grew up with, the two famous Davids – Beckham and Gandy – both of whom dress as though they’re always ready to strip off for an underwear photoshoot, Harry Styles who has no qualms in dressing a world away from his fellow bandmates, Idris Elba who’s always a head-turner and many more. Brooklyn Beckham also makes an appearance alongside his famous father, which makes those of us who vividly remember when the news of his birth broke feel ever so slightly weathered.
The shortlist comprises of 40 male trendsetters, all of which you can ogle at here but who’s your favourite? Winners announced in their February 2015 issue.
