The 5 Best Dressed Men in Hollywood
It should come as no surprise that some of the best dressed men in the world happen to be Hollywood icons. Indeed, Hollywood is a veritable hotbed of men’s fashion, with most people in the film industry putting a great deal of effort into how they look before they step out the door each morning. While there are plenty of actors and industry insiders who exhibit great style, some stand apart from the herd as being true icons of men’s fashion and style. The following are five of the best dressed men in Hollywood, all of whom rarely step into the public eye without looking their absolute best.
1. Robert Downey, Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. may have a shaky history in the film industry, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t one of Hollywood’s most well-dressed men. Known for his schizophrenic sense of style, Robert Downey Jr. can just as often be seen wearing a clashing mess of an ensemble as an extremely well put-together suit, making it difficult for many people to understand just what makes his fashion sense tick. Perhaps most well-known for his love for combining cartoony shirts with expensive blazers, Robert Downey Jr. is likely to continue turning heads for many years to come. Also worth mentioning is his 6 page feature in Germany’s GQ magazine (January 2012 edition) where he dresses in elegant suit, tie, and pocket square.
2. George Clooney
No “best dressed” list is complete without George Clooney’s name being thrown into the mix. Referred to by many as the “sexiest man alive,” Clooney has a style that is all his own. From polo shirts paired with blazers to slim-leg pants and cashmere sweaters of the highest quality, George Clooney exhibits a slick, yet simplistic sense of style that works exceptionally well for him. It is not a surprise that he was one of the best dressed men at the recent Oscar nomination. George Clooney dressed in back tie attire will leave even James Bond envious.
3. Justin Timberlake
While once known for his contributions to the music industry, Justin Timberlake is fast becoming a Hollywood staple, perhaps thanks in part to his exquisite style. Melding casual and formal style like no one else in the industry, Timberlake is a veritable master of putting together ensembles that appear sleek, yet effortless. After all, who else can pair ties with leather jackets and actually get away with it?
Timberlake is also regularly featured in GQ magazine. He has been on the cover several times wearing plaid patterned slim ties, slim fitting suits, pocket squares, and trendy tie bars.
4. Johnny Depp
Famous for being one of the best character-actors in Hollywood, Johnny Depp is also amongst the best dressed in the industry. Depp exhibits a modern-gothic sense style that is rife with crossover, making him one of the most versatile dressers in his game. Never afraid to pair extravagant accessories with understated outfits, Johnny Depp surely knows how to attract attention with the outfits he puts together, often leaning towards the bohemian side of things. His signature look: loud patterns (think bold pin-stripes and paisleys), tinted round shaped glasses (light blue or purple/lavender), and a long silk neck scarf (or two).
5. Samuel L. Jackson
It’s difficult to think of an actor that exudes more in the way of “cool” than Samuel L. Jackson, much ado to his style. Famous for pairing a Kangol cap with scarves of various lengths, Jackson’s style is distinct, yet far from being “loud.” Jackson proved to Hollywood that cords and bomber jackets can work together, making him a trendsetter and someone who isn’t afraid to go against the grain of modern fashion.
