DJ Nick Grimshaw tops dress league

Radio 1 Breakfast DJ Nick Grimshaw is top of the GQ’s Best-Dressed Men List, followed by Avengers star Tom Hiddleston and Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom actor Idris Elba is fourth, with former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens in fifth place.

The top 10 is completed by rapper Tinie Tempah, X Factor host Dermot O’Leary, Arctic Monkeys’ frontman Alex Turner, fashion designer Charlie Casely-Hayford and model David Gandy.

GQ paid special tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh saying Philip “deserves yet another medal — for his services to classic British tailoring”, with deputy editor Bill Prince adding: “Top-down management still rules among the royals, evidenced by the degree to which the Duke of Edinburgh’s sons, grandsons [and, who knows, great-grandson] hero-worship his time-honoured style.”

In the worst-dressed category, fashion designer Ozwald Boateng tops the list, followed by politician George Galloway, TV scientist Brian Cox and former Co-op Bank boss Paul Flowers.

Dancer-turned-I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Vincent Simone (5), MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace (8) and UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage (10) also feature.

The poll was voted for by staff at GQ and a panel of experts from the worlds of fashion and celebrity, including Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Roger Moore and Donatella Versace.
