We write lists for everything. Our shopping list, our to do list, our top 10 male celebrity crush list (no, just me?) But when it comes to style there is only one list that matters. With more dapper gents than you can shake a stick at, and a lot more respectability than Heat’s ‘Torso Of The Year’ award, Yuppee’s Eleven Leading Lads’ list brings together the UK’s finest fashion representitives for the male sex.
Hold onto your hats ladies because we are about to get a closer look at the best dressed men of 2012.
Jeremy Irvine is Hollywood’s most wanted, having spent the majority of his burgeoning acting career on screen with a broad west country accent. Never-the-less this 22-year-old is no barren land when it comes to fashion.From high tops and leather to dressed down tuxedos, Irvine is one chic catch.
Robert Pattinson has come along way since playing the Tri-Wizard-Champion in the Harry Potter film franchise. Today he is actor, turned model, turned singer/songwriter, turned producer, turned heart-throb. After sinking his teeth into the Twilight series Ro-pat soon began to catch the eye of fashionistas far and wide. Proving he wouldn’t be torn by the Stewert Saga, Pattinson rolled out of bed and showed us all how a man should dress- wearing everything from skinny suits to plaid.
Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu, better known by his stage name Tinie Tempah, is the man making waves in the urban scene right now. Causing women everywhere to pass-out (not to mention getting a little bit frisky) Tinie Tempah combines colourful urban wear with preppy geek chic to create a look all of his own.
You don’t need to have spidey-senses to see that Andrew Garfield in one stylish man. Taking on the lead of Peter Parker in super-film Spiderman, Garfield has spun a web of style and sex-appeal.Wearing Granddad jumpers and burgundy suits we’ve spun a web of lust for our Andy Garfield.
We have a heart full of love for this Master of the Burberry House. Yes- Burberry model and star of new movie Les Miserable has made out list. Teaching us just how to layer, wearing velvet suits and tailored tweed it has been an excellent fashion year for Eddie Redmayne.
Dancing his way into our hearts with our Nation’s favourite, Chezza, is Mr Trey Holloway. Wearing dapper dickies and denim ensembles he strikes a new urban air.
Trusty ‘ole golden balls,striking up a fashion trend every now and then -much to Victoria’s hearts content. This year he proved he can sell underwear just like the bods at Calvin Klein and even look stylish when driving a speedboat. If we were handing out awards Beckham would get effortless style.
Living-while-he’s-young singer Harry Styles from the infamous 1D is one cheeky chappy.Snapping ladies left right and centre this charmer is one stylish singer. After Harry cast off the shackles of the One Direction uniform – the trendy, one-style-fits-all mould X Factor insist upon – the teen heart-throb showed he can hold his own in the fashion stakes. Cue sharp blazers, baseball jackets, good knits and one smitten (older) lady after another.
With Tom Ford providing the suits for the latest Bond instalment, ‘Skyfall’, Daniel Craig was always going to look tailored up-to-the-nines this year. Continuing this immaculate vein into his own red carpet wardrobe – and the ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ promo tour prior to this – Craig mixed up his sharp uniform with the addition of some neat knits. Nice work, Mr. Bond.
Zac Posen favours velvet, polo necks and fur rimmed suit jackets. And boy does the American fashion designer pull them off with panache. Continually choosing a palette of rich hues and fabrics, Posen always looks opulent enough to match his own luxe female creations
